Exclamation Very little to none at all hot water flow in shower only

I have checked the outdoor shower, the shut valve is open on the shower head and water is off.

I can turn the hot water side on the faucet in the shower only a quarter of the way to sometimes get a trickle and sometimes bearly enough to get mix with cold to get the shower head to function and be tolerable.

If i turn the hot water faucet more than a quarter the is no flow of water at all and i have to turn it all the way off again to get the little flow it will do back again. Sometimes there is no flow at all after repeating that a few times it will maybe come back or not. I have tightened the screw inside the knob and took it off, did not change anything.

Hot water flows everywhere else in the kitchen and bathroom sink is fine.

This is a 21ft 2017 stealth toy hauler. Nothing has been touch as far as valves or anything at all for winterizing and I have not looked at the water heater. The hot water heater is producing scorching hot water so that's not a problem.

Thank you for any ideas to help this is very frustrating as I been researching for days and can't find anyone with a similar problem with a solution that will fix this.

Depressurize the system and remove the knob and plastic cartridge from the hot side valve on the shower faucet.

I bet you find some sawdust/construction debris/plastic shavings in there.

Sounds like something stuck at the hot water valve at the shower. Lots of junk in new rv water lines.

There is something in the valve. you will need to take the valve apart. I have had a washer come loose in a valve once and did the same thing you are describing.

I'm not sure how to depressurize and check the shower valves or anything but I am capable of looking it up and figuring it out.
where is the hot water faucet valve located?
when I took off the hot water knob the plastic cartridge I'm assuming is the gear innards of the knob it did not seem to pop out or easily come out without breaking

thank you for all the quick responses! I am really appreciative as I am trying to learn all this stuff as we are living in this for the last year on and off during construction. Bought it brand new and of course, the wear and tear of living in it full time for months at a time will take its toll...

The knob with the H on it is the hot water valve. It should turn the hot water on and off - therefore, valve. Depressurize by shutting off outside water and opening sink hot water valve/knob.
