Thank you tkdavis for posting that link. I never could get the safecar.gov to finish loading. We have the Atwood too. I printed the info so Rick can look and see if ours falls into the recall category.

It was a warranty issue and they decided to replace it with the Atwood.

FR told me a few months ago they will not put a Girard anything back in a MH of course that was before the recall but I'm betting they replaced or repaired more gen 1 and 2's than the this recall quantity covered.

I have a gen II in my Berk. Adjusting the WH is easy and needs to be changed at about every 10į-15į change in ambient temperature. The adjusting knob in the Berk is located in our medicine cabinets. Turn the shower on full hot and let it run until hot water comes out of the shower head. Adjust the knob to the temperature that you want. What you are doing is adjusting the flame height in the heater itself.

Good luck.

We dry camp quite a bit at NASCAR races and the trick is to run the bathroom sink until water is hot, then turn the shower on. It gets hot quicker using the sink than the shower so that is why I do this. I'm sure I'm probably using the same amount of water but I feel better because I'm not sitting there for 30 seconds watching cold water run out of the shower head being wasted....
