Rockwood premier 2514g water heater

I just bought a new 2015 rockwood premier 2514g and took it out for our first trip this week.

We tried using the outside shower and the hot water fluctuated about every 5 seconds from cool to Luke warm and back to cool/cold.

I understood this had a 6 gallon tank for the hot water. Is this the way it is intended to work? Am I doing something wrong?

Sounds like one of your bypass valves behind your water heater are turned incorrectly.

Just to confirm: it should put out hot water consistently? Not just Luke warm?

Congrats on your new unit. Your pop up has a 6 gallon tank so it is not an "on demand system". It should provide a nice flow of hot water.

I also suspect that a valve might be turned in the wrong direction.

Locate the WH and look at the valves used to bypass the tank (it is used to winterize your unit). The levers are oval or a teardrop shapes lever. Make sure the pointy ends are in line with the lines you want the water to flow into. Perpendicular shuts the valve.

The water heater and the bypass setup is under the dining table bench on the tongue side of the table. My bench cover was secured with one screw.
