hot water

We bought a new jayco in the fall and used it three times the hot water is not as good as our old trailer. You can't even take one shower with out running out of hot water. And don't think they sell different temperature sensors. This is what i think maybe going on maybe they plumded it wrong, in a house the cold come in at the bottom of tank and the hot comes out the top so if its hooked up backwards it would not work as good. Thats just my thoughts what are yours

Sure sounds like you don't have the WH bypass valves set right. If it was plummed wrong you'd have hot water coming out of the cold side, there is a check valve on the cold water inlet side,

If your not sure about the plumbing are you sure you winterized it correctly?

Looks like the first place to check and that's an easy fix, almost like nothing too fix. Got my fingers crossed for ya.
