no adjustment. Do you have an outside shower? Turn off both valves. Not just the shower head.

Be sure your WH by-pass valves are in the proper position.

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant

X2 - This WH bypass valve setting is the most common cause of the issue mentioned. Either one of these conditions will cause the system to mix hot and cold water.

I’m making the assumption that your water heater model is the same as in our 2020 Sunseeker. If so, then no, the water heater thermostat is not adjustable. However, there is an adjustable thermostat available for this water heater, which I have installed.

Water being too cold as in your case may be due to a defective thermostat. My experience with these heaters is that the water is typically scalding hot. I installed the adjustable thermostat to reduce the temperature to a safer level.

Cold shower

You have the valves turned on wrong on the hot water heater has nothing to do with the thermostat.
