Teflon tape and water heater connections

I was just getting ready to hook up the water lines to the hot water heater and realized I better check before making a mistake.

This is a brand new Atwood water heater and I am ready to screw the plastic fittings into the metal fittings on the water heater. The question is should I use teflon tape with the plastic fittings or just screw the fittings in and be done with it?

Thanks!

Brad

Use the tape or it will leak. Will leak with tape if you don't get it tight.
