I believe some tanks are adjustable and some aren't. I have a gas only unit and has a large turn knob that is adjustable where i light the pilot.

Dan, You likely have a winterization by pass on your hot water heater. This is so you don't need to put 6 gallons of antifreeze in the water heater. If you do as Jagiven says and open up the bypass valves a bit, you will be mixing cold water with the hot that comes from the heater. Just play with the valves a bit until you get the temperature that suits you.

I just watched the video - I'm not too sure they got it in place very tight. Sure looked like it about to fall out after hitting a few bumps in the road haha...

I think I would work on making sure it sets in the hole up against the tank better...

I use the BY-PASS adjustment adding a bit of cold water to the hot water here on mine.

Great Idea...

The bypass adjustment leaves you with 6/10 gallons of 140 degree water but can prevent scalding of kids. I'd prefer that over lowering the thermostat temp, especially with just 6 gallon heaters.
