I would like to be in hot water!

We have a 2015 3010DS Sunseeker with an Atwood Gas/Electric WH. The problem we are having is lately when we turn on any of our HW faucets (including the shower) we are getting luke warm water and sometimes hot water in spurts (we only use the city water connection). I have opened the valve on the WH tank itself and the water coming out is very hot. So I do not understand why I am not getting HW at the faucets. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

Common problem usually caused by the bypass valves not being set correctly.

Make sure yours are set for normal use.

You need to turn your water heater bypass valve so it is perpendicular to the pipe. Also, check that your outside shower is turned off at the knobs and make sure the button on the head isn't in the off position.

Yep, very common occurrence which is why the site team made a sticky thread this year in the plumbing section:

That was exactly what I needed to do, I did not have the flow blocked in the normal use diagram you provided. I now have very hot water at all my faucets and shower. This forum is the greatest. Thankyou for your quick reply, much appreciated!!!!

Warm water not( HOT)

I am glad you found your problem, I had a similar problem on my Charleston MC. What I found was that I left the hot and cold on at the outside shower and it was mixing the water so all I got was warm water inside the coach. Found the answer on Forest River Forums ( GREAT SITE ).
