You may not have the winterization valves fully open or at all.

My wh has a large blue knob that is the thermostat for the wh. When we got our TT the first time we used it the dial was turn all the way down. I only discovered this after the hot water was not so hot. I turned the dial up up and we had HOT water. I guess I just assumed they all have a thermostat.

I will add that this was on our old TT. And it was not an electric start. I had to light the pilot light and the "blue" knob was on the gas control valve. I just looked at our new one and noticed that does not have this. As it is electric start. Sorry if I cause confusion.

What is the "Winterization" valve? I suspect that may be my problem as the pressure is ok out of the shower for about 15 seconds then goes to almost nil.

I had the exact same issue. Luke warm water and no pressure to the shower. There is a valve under the bed where the blue and red lines meet. Close that off and things should work fine
