They had me try that with my Gen 1 system. It did not work. Finally FR swapped it out for a Gen 2 system and it works perfect with the water coming in the coach is relatively warm, if it is not, it is difficult to achieve hot water.
I would say of any aspect of the Berkshire I HATE it's the damn water heater.
I promised myself the next coach will have Aqua Hot or equivalent.

After doing extensive testing with Kyle , he determined that my problem was a faulty thermostat on the Auto setting. Once this thermostat was taken offline I have hot water.
To locate this switch open the outside access panel to the water heater. On the back left side of the compartment attached to a brass water line is a small round device with 2 black wires and blue connectors coming in to it.
Remove the two blue connectors from the switch. Remove the blade connectors from the wires and connect the two wires.
The net result.of this change is to give a high low setting rather than an auto low setting.
I am now able to produce 188f water in the kitchen sink and 111f in the shower
