hot water, both faucets

2008 Surveyor SV 234
Connected to campsite water

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.

Any thoughts?
Thanks,
Matt

Hot water on both sides!

What a shock you get, I bet. HUUUUMMMMM, check your bypass valve at the hotwater tank to see if it is closed? If it is open just a little, you may get hot water on the cold side.

Our trailer does it as well. I just chalked it up to the cold water and hot water lines being too close together somewhere or the colde is too close to the water heater.

As said above the hot water heater bypass valve is open and feeding hot water back into the cold water line.

No it isn't at least in our case.

No way that much heat can be tranferred to another plastic pipe. Most locations they have lots of space between them. Does this happen in all your sinks or just one? Is it possible the bypass valve is bad and open all the time?
Can you feel the heated water at the lines going into and out of the heater as well as the bypass valve?

Geeze,

As always seem to over think stuff. We have been camping in 90 to 100 degree temps this last 10 days, in all likelyhood the hot water is coming from the hose laying on the ground outside soaking the beautiful North and South Dakota sun in. Tip thanks to DW's sisters hubby.

And all this time I thought you were still in Canada.
Where are you Arizona?
