Make sure your outside shower taps are not on whilst the outdoor shower wand itself is turned off at the wand. If you have the detachable type outdoor shower, make sure the taps aren't turned on. These scenarios allow cold water to be drawn into the hot water line while you are showing inside.
Now on the inside shower:
Also, if this is your first travel trailer experience, you learn to take navy showers. You wet yourself, turn off the water at the shower wand...soap yourself, shampoo hair......then turn the water back on at the wand and rinse off. Then turn all the taps off.
You only have a small tank and won't be able to shower like you do at home.
You can also check that bypass valve again and make sure it is completely closed. The handle has to be perpendicular to the actual bypass pipe. It makes a T across the pipe. Some people confuse this since the bypass pipe isn't running the same direction as the inlet/outlet pipes.
