Hot Water thermostat adjustment

We have a 2012 Roo21ss. I read thru the manuals but can not find if and where the thermostat for the hot water can be adjusted. The water is way too hot to the point it can burn your hand, so we would like to lower the tempature. Thanks

IIRC, I have a Suburban in my 233s and I don't recall ever seen an adjustment on mine. I think that most HWH with DSI come with a preset thermostat. Maybe you can retrofit something from suburban.

FWIW, we had a camper in the past with a gas only water heater - no direct spark and no electric element. I needed to light that by going outside and light a pilot. That heater had a dial that I could move between warm and hot.

as far as i know, the temp is not adjustable.

you may want to have it checked out by the dealer.
maybe the water temp sensor is not working right.

Many w/hs aren't adjustable. The one on our old '85 rig would get hot enough to run a steam engine. The one in our current rig is more reasonable - haven't had to consider adjusting it.

I am surprised to discover there's no temperature adjust on the fridge/freezer.
