hot water

We have a jayco jay flight 29bhs travel trailer. It is our first tine using it since it was winterized. My husband thinks our hot water is as is I disagree. When I turn on the hot water it is hot for only 30 second then barelyLukewarm and barely any pressure. . The bypass valves one red and one black are open on tank. But should we have one closed one or the one under sink Open (small black?) Should we have used the water pump top get water in or does it go automatically?
I am thinking we are either drawing water from a cold source or our hot water tank isn't full cause it should be alot Warmer.

There should be a water line between the cold input and hot output on the water heater that's opened when you bypass to winterize. Make sure that's closed. There was a thread about that a week or so ago so you're not the first one to do it, assuming that's the issue

There are three valves at the water heater, for summer use two valves are open one is closed. Rob Roy has a great schematic I bet he will post later. The valve that that stubs between two water pipes should be close.

As for water pressure drop, that has me a bit stumped.does it do it for both connected to city water, and through the water pump?

Start with checking the valve position. If the handle is turned to be inline with the pipe the valve is open, if the valve handle is perpendicular to the pipe, the valve is closed. Two open, one closed.

I think you mean RoyBraddy. However, the tag line applies to both Roys:
"Honor made him a man. Courage made him a hero. History (his Jayco forum posts) made him a legend."

RoyBraddy is this guy:

hot water

Here is a good schematic of hot water bypass implementation.

Also, check to make sure that the knobs on an outside shower are turned off. If you have an outside shower and you've left the valves open the hot and cold will mix and leave the hot water lukewarm.
