Water Heater question

I have a 2012 used Flagstaff 625D and it has a small 6 gal water heater. Went to try it out for the first time last weekend and water was barley warm. My question is how long does it take to heat up? Is there a temperature control or anyone know why it's not getting hot?

Not sure how long, mine doesn't seem to take to long. Did you winterize? If so I have forgotten to close the bypass around the water heater and the hot was mixing with cold and not feeling hot. Just an idea.

I will try that. It's new and it was winterized by dealer.

I'll bet Rudy's right on this. That bypass valve is an easy one to miss when the dealer winterizes. Good luck!

3 valve system should be like this for summer use.

Hot water heater

Turbo, on mine(Cardinal) the valves acted like they were multiple turns???
Or are they half turn valves?
Thanks, jdadoug

Renosky, a 6 gallon WH is pretty much the standard size in RV's and not considered "small".
