No hot water in shower

We have a 2008 36' MDDS, We have hot water in both the kitchen and bathroom sinks but NO HOT water in the shower. We're thinking that the shower valve is the problem. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Could be the cartridge in the shower mixer/valve handle has calcium buildup. Try taking it out and cleaning or better yet replacing.

If you have no water flow out of the hot tap then removing the cartridge is in order. If you have flow but cool water only you may have an outside tap set that is not properly shut off . E.G. outside shower turned off at the shower head but not off at the taps , allowing blended; cool ; water to run through the hot line to the shower tap.

Before anything else, make sure the valves are off to the hand held shower in the service compartment. If both valves are on, sometimes the water mixes there going to the shower, with hot water elsewhere.
