Atwood Water Heater.

I have an Atwood water heater in a Class A Berkshire. It's the third water heater the first two were Gerard gen 1 and 2. I have had my struggles with water heaters.
My Atwood was fluctuating between hot and cold during a shower getting so hot then when turning it down it would turn off the heater.
I started to run hot water in the bathroom sink and that really made the shower great. I then removed the shower head and tested the temp. I found I could adjust the temp of the water easily. There was enough flow to allow a nice steady temperature.
I then needed a very high flow shower head. I ordered this one and it works perfectly. The problem is it's a bit large and there are two heads. It comes with a 3 way diverter so it can run one or two heads at a time. If anyone has a good idea on a shower head let me know. Click image for larger version

I have a cc 38el. Dw did not like the shower head that came with it went to hd and bought a nice one one the hose. Had the water flow problem with it. Removed the restrictor in it and it works great. No issues and she is happy.

I have been using this set up for a couple of weeks and it is perfect except for there is no place to get out of the water. I had removed all the water restrictions from both shower heads so I tried just the hand held shower head. It has ended flow to work. So my Atwood water is working perfectly. I have full adjustment and no cold to hot to cold cycling. An easy fix for anyone having problems.
