Every time I turn on the cold water at either faucet (kitchen or bathroom), I get a couple of seconds of not-quite-scalding water. Then the water cools down to the expected temp.
I thought it might just be due to the 100 degree temps yesterday, but this morning its a "cool" 80 degrees. And the same thing is happening.
It didn't happen the when we had the trailer out about 3 weeks ago.
Well, I'm not sure what really happened, but I thought I would update you anyway.
I was still having the same problem on my next outing...and it was much cooler outside. I turned the water heater on bypass and determined that it was working. I left it like that for a few hours and had no hot water coming from either tap. I returned the valves to their previous settings to allow the wife and kids hot water again. The problem has not returned.
Although I checked for this multiple times, I can only guess that it had something to do with the bypass valve not closing all the way for some reason.
