Looks like a fair amount of carbon buildup. Perhaps you are set too rich (shutter closed too much).

Well I figured it out on my last trip. Some joker at the factory had the bypass valve open on the backside of the tank so cold water was being fed back into it continuously. The odd thing was that it was sometimes hot enough to shower, etc. with it like this and other times it was never warm for more than a few seconds.

Since I knew the heater was still kicking on after a day of being hooked up I knew it wasn't totally shutting off. Tested the water on the outside at the tank and it was extremely hot yet it was cold on the inside. So I knew a valve somewhere had to be open. Ended up having to pull a kitchen drawer out to get to it but I seen right away it was in the wrong position. Hot showers and dishwashing back in place.

Thought I'd update this post so others may run across it to remind others to double check those hidden valves.
