Water too HOT

Hello all
I have a 2019 Eagle M-27 SGX HTX , as far as I can tell the hwh is functioning correctly but every once in awhile it will lockout and since day one the water temp is too high for us ,it kicks on and off fine , I have read the Dometic Gas/ Electric booklet 3 times and canot find anything on YouTube as I have looked for hours , I cannot find how to set or find a heat setting, any help or insight would be much appreciated.
Thanks Danno

I believe I read that these style water heaters are preset to 120*F and are not adjustable. I think I also read that you can buy aftermarket things to lower the set temp

The temperature is higher to stretch the hot water for a shower. I actually replaced my 130 with 150 to extend the shower even longer.

Yes they are high to extend the small volume of water you have. You need to mix the hot with cold water to get it to desired temperature. Not just turn on hot water. I have learned to turn on hot knob and where to turn the cold one so it comes out how I like it.

Or try changing the valves at the water heater to allow cold water to blend into the hot water via the bypass.

It is a preset thermostat to 120 degrees F, and is not adjustable.

Couple options; many people just leave the bypass valve cracked open, to mix in some cool water. You can also buy an adjustable thermostat.
