No you can not adjust it.

Are the by pass valves turned correctly ?

Are you using gas or electric side of wh ?

Using gas just doesn't seem hot ,valves are open all the way, it did fire up after maybe just wasn't calling for heater yet?

if you had your trailer winterized and this is the first trip out, the values are closed going to the WH tank....... check the valves (X3)........

you can also turn your gas off and switch your WH over to electric to make sure it's not the gas you are having problems with....... search on "water heater" and "electric" on the forum; really good section about "Water Heaters" here; it's locked, but it has some really good info....
