Hot water too hot

I have an Atwood water heater in my 28DSBH and the hot water is too hot. I have looked everywhere for an adjustment to the temperature and cannot find it - on the tank under the bunk bed and on the back at the circuit board of the igniter. Help! Anyone know where this might be located? Thanks.

Some people have mentioned that they turn the hot water bypass valve half way to let more cold bypass the heater and bleed into the hot water line. This adds cold water to the hot water line (after the heater) to bring the temp down. I haven't done this, but it sounds like it should work. Trial and error to get the temp you want, though.

Try just pilot

We don't have a Jayco yet but hoping to soon. In our 1990 Fleetwood my husband just lights the pilot light and it keeps the water hot enough for dishwashing, etc. We use the shower house for bathing so don't use a lot of hot water. Hope this helps.

IIRC you can get a lower temp thermostat and switch them.

the temperature was adjustable on the first TT (X23B). There was a blue handle (disk) on the front of the control valve. It was gas only.
The gas-electric on the newer 5th is not adjustable.
