No, that rod is perfectly fine. I have same coach as you and I check mine once a year when / if I need to winterize. Sure you can replace, but the answer to your question is that you don't need to
and replacing it is not going to do anything more than your current one.
75% of the metal being sacrificed is a safe general rule to go by. If you just wish to be ultra conservative change at 50%. If you do wish to change it now; PM me, I will send you an address to ship it to
