130 degrees!!! Ouch

Well, after the DW got scalded in the shower this morning, I pulled the manual only to learn that there is no adjustment for the temperature on our water heater in our '13 3100SS. The manual warns of getting burned as there is no adj. on the unit. Factory says it is around 130. Wow!
Someone surely has come across this before. Any fixes out there? Perhaps a mixing valve? Need some feedback, Thanks.

See post #7 here:

water heater temperature

Never found a 120F t-stat for gas, but you could at least drop the temp on electric to 120F. (Happy wife = Happy life).

If you have an Atwood water heater you might look at this video as an option.
