Yes. That is your bypass valve. Left open (handle in line with water line) will allow the cold water to mix with the hot. Results will be warm/cool water instead of hot.

Good luck and happy camping.

Dretired, I find the bypass valve this past weekend. It was one little screw that was hidden near floor to open the panel. Just wanted to let you know.
