I was wondering can I plug in the 110 circuit with my additional water heater on a dedicated circuit while simultaneously plugging into the 110/220 50 amp circuit?

Yes, both are normally available and many campers use both at the same time.

Looks like the Suburban book section on relief valves instructs to bleed down water level to relief valve opening, while cold, and repressurize. Idea is to form the air pocket as described here. It only takes a few moments to bleed the tank from hot to cold and saves bad burns.

So i picked up my trailer from the dealer last week and needless to say, "the service dept.. SUCKS"
Had various issues besides the water heater, witch they say is operating as designed.
I really don't think they even touched my trailer.
So what i did was turned the cold supply valve down and restricted the flow of cold water rushing into the tank, and now I'm getting a full 5 gallons of hot water.
Yea i got a little less pressure, but i can deal with that
Thanks for all the input👍👍

Just to make sure I am understanding right cause I had not thought of that and I have never actually used a WH in a camper (my old didn't have one and I just bought my new TT) so the water heater was heating the water and as you were using it (taking a shower) the cold line was filling the tank causing the temp to drop lower and lower as you were using the water and the water heater tank was filling? That makes sense and it is something that I have never thought of, I mean it happens in residential house tanks but the tank is so large I never thought of this being a problem.

Thank for the update, sorry it took so long to figure out but if it is any consolation it helped me understand and now I can watch out for that same problem when I use mine.
