That should have done it, run
sudo systemctl status draws-manager
for basic diagnostics.

Thanks John and Basil…
There was a line already in the file but commented out (#PORT=8873). To keep life simple, I un-commented it. Rebooted and without anything running, I still can’t connect. I can ping the machine, but I get the same message as before:
Unable to connect
Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at 10.0.0.225:8873.
The unit is on the network, can be seen by the network hub manager and the cable gateway. Just no DRAWS manager connection to 10.0.0.225:8873 (or the original 8080).
I can connect to the other DRAWS unit with Firefox (from my workstation) and Chrome on the 2nd DRAWS unit which is still default to port 8080.
If a lot of configuration surgery is needed to solve this, I might just create another image and bring it up from nil… less pain and agony.

Basil pointed you to the right location (/etc/default is a common place for configuration variables to be stored).
You do need to restart DRAWS™ Manager after editing the file.
sudo systemctl restart draws-manager

From the draws-manager README
"If you want to set the port, edit /etc/default/draws-manager and add a
line with the port number, e.g. PORT=80 (it defaults to 8080)."
