Probably used psychological warfare on you, say you did it and they will believe and feel the difference, especially if you charge money for the "adjustment".

Since it sounds like you always have full hookups you might investigate the newest generation of the Girard Tankless water heater. Some folks hate them and some folks love them. They are designed to provide endless hot water.

Me thinks they adjusted your wallet to reduce weight
Perhaps they replaced the thermostat on your unit.

What about installing a tankless water heaters, would that help?

Replacing the water heater is expensive regardless. I would go with the thermostats first. Get them on the internet for about $20 ea.

Odds are that's what they did. I took it back for some warranty work and asked if there was anything to improve the water heater situation, they said yes and "Adjusted" it under goodwill. Honestly I haven't thought about how they did it, but this was after I embarrassed them over a slide adjustment issue, they likely just wanted me to go away.

They didn't charge me and next trip out, oh yeah it was hotter. Instead of heating water for drinks in the microwave we just used hot water from the tap, it was plenty.

Have you replaced the shower head? The OEM ones use lots of water & a very poor spray.

I have a 10 gallon water heater and a long luxurious mane. I don't turn off the water between steps and don't run out. The only time I "navy" shower is if we're getting showers in quick succession.

Not good for us, we mainly camp at fishing holes with no hook-ups most of the time.

No hookups and your wife uses up all the hot water in one shower? You must fill your gray water tank mighty fast. Long hot showers and no hookups don't exactly go hand in hand.
