Water heater

Just bought a 2014 A122s A-Frame. This is my first camper. I'm having trouble figuring out how to raise the water heater temperature for hotter water. I looked through the manuals but didn't see how to do so. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks fellow campers.

Most water heaters in campers are NOT adjustable. You have to change both hi limit switches. Most come from the factory with 130į. I changed mine to 140į.

Usually, RV water heaters are not adjustable. Attwood makes an adjustable thermostat you can buy and install. I don't believe Suburban does. If your heater is heating the water, but not hot enough, you will probably have to replace the thermostat switch. They are easy to replace and can be purchased from Amazon cheaper than most places. However, before you do that, check your bypass valves on the heater. The one that bypasses the heater could be partially open and you would be getting a mix of hot and cold water. If you have a temperature probe, the water should be about 140 degrees F.
BTW, Google is your friend! You will find all sort of info there including how to videos.
