The longer one was for an outlet that went in the top of the tank, not the side.

That water heater (made for mobile homes) does not use a dip tube. The cold water is plumbed to the bottom of the tank.

You don't need one because the cold water is plumbed into the bottom of the tank.

Yes really, notwithstanding you do not have a dip tube on the hot side even with top connected supplies.
