Is your shower water hot?

We have been trying out every part of our new camper in the driveway. The shower did not seem to produce enough hot water to shower without it going cold in a few minutes. Is there a temp control or something?

Make sure the water heater is not on bypass still.

Check the water heater bypass valve reads like it is.

What he said. But, no, there is no temp adjustment.

Also check your outside shower. If those valves are open hot and cold water can mix at that point, too.

Do you have both electric and gas on? Using both nets you more hot water.

Are you taking navy showers or letting the water run?

The water is warm, so I assume it is not on by-pass. The kitchen sink gets pretty hot, but the shower, with nothing but hot turned on, seems lukewarm after about 5 minutes. I had the hot water on on propane all afternoon, with the camper plugged in to power. I can't believe that's all the hot water I can get.

You have a six gallon water heater, that's not a lot of hot water. Are you taking navy showers? If not you should.

I'm not taking a shower to time it. I'm watching to see if it is hot enough. It's lukewarm, and no cold is on at all.
