H o t

We have the Atwood tankless water heater installed by the dealer prior to us picking up the new RV last fall. Since then we would get luke warm water in the bathroom but nothing in the kitchen even close to warm. I struggled with it for hours last weekend trying all the tricks that I have seen and read about online. I finally found the Modular Control Valve in the hardest spot to see and now we have very hot water for as long as you want. I have seen many many posts about how the tankless water heaters are nothing but problems and we are nothing happy with our Atwood tankless.

I'm guessing the difference is that the Atwood works and the Girard can be problematic. The complaints I've seen posted on this forum have all been Girard.

I added a photo of where the valve is and the color is the same as all surrounding stuff so tough to initially see. I put the tip of my screwdriver on it so that it can be seen

If it's not too much trouble, I would like to see a picture of what it looks like closed up on the side of the rig.
Never seen one before.

Me too. Had been thinking about a Truma, but always open to anything that actually works.

I think it looks just like most other covers but here is a picture of mine.
