Hot Water Heater

Is there a way to turn up the temperature on the hot water heater?

On a Suburban, you can only change the hi limits. There are 2, one is 12v for propane and one is 110v for shore power. IIRC the max is 142 degrees.

I have to ask if you can explain in more detail, if you are having a problem.....like only having a short blast of hot/warm water. The reason I ask is you may have something else wrong like in faulty/open bypass valves... or an outside shower head with the valves on but turned off at the wand head, that's letting cold water into the hot water line thus the water turning cold quickly.

In another means of answering, yes you can. You first need to I.D. which system you want to raise the temp, the 115Vac element or the gas heater control. They are both in the same enclosure on the outside of the RV behind the Louvered cover and the square access plate. You can order the thermostat for either system in increments of +10 deg. Call Suburban and explain what you want. I've done it for $35/40 per thermostat. Just remem these will not increase volume, only the static temperature.
