Did the dealer show you the WH bypass valve.?
It's probably still in winterized mode.
That's why we recommend Camp Driveway.
So these things are discovered before you go camping.

X2, switch the valves by the water heater.
You will need to have the hot and cold valves open / parallel to the water lines and the center valve closed/perpendicular to the line.

Make sure your outside shower is off at the handles and not at the shower head. That is a common place for mixing if both hot and cold are left on.

that would've been my second suggestion if it wasn't the bypass valve.

No outside shower . I just need to find the valves since they never showed us.

Go outside and find the water heater then go inside and imagine how
to access the back side of that.
Valves in question located on the inside/rear of the water heater tank.
Good Luck!

X2.......most of the time you can access the back of the water heater through a blank panel by removing a couple of screws.
