Atwood Water Heater not heating

Our Atwood Water Heater in our 2011 Jayco Jay Flight G2 Series M-33 RLDS has been acting up. This is our fourth season with this wonderful trailer. The hot water was HOT over the first three seasons. At the beginning of this season it seemed as though it wasn’t quite as hot but bearable. During our last trip this past weekend we didn’t even need to mix with cold water to take a shower. Steady stream out the hot side. We could feel spurts of hot water during a shower but nothing like we are accustomed to. Has anyone had this experience? If so, what did you do to fix it?

couple of questions come to mind - you running propane or electric for the water heater? when was the last time you drained and flushed the water heater? if your water or the CG water is high in calcium you may have accumulations on teh heater (electric). If propane, do you hear the typical "rush" sound when the heater fires up?

Also, check you bypass valves to make sure they are in the proper position.

And if you are running on electric the heating element could be going bad just as they do at home

Issue resolved. The bypass valve was indeed open. It’s been that way all summer. The colder outside temperatures this past weekend made that more obvious. Thanks to all for your suggestions and willingness to help.
