Hot water, not so hot

Is there a way to turn up the heat on the hot water tank? I fired it up for the first time, for us, it's a 2013 Avenger 191LT. Barely warm water. Am I missing something?

You might be facing the same thing I am. Bypass valve, but I don't know where it is. If you find it, turn it and see what happens.

It should be on the back of your water heater, which may mean opening a panel. It would also help if you mentioned what type and model tt you have.
