Make sure your outside shower faucets are closed. Other make sure water heater bypass valve in correct position.

That should do it. Had the same problem. Located the valve under the oven and near the sink in the kitchen. The valve was in the bypass position. Move to correct position and had more hot water than needed.

I agree, make sure the outside water facet has both hot & cold knobs turned off.

Ask me how I know!

My MH has a manifold (a panel with several shut off valves) in an outside compartment that allows for turning off sections of the coach. After winterizing, in the spring I had trouble getting hot water. I found that one of the valves was mismarked and I needed to experiment to find the correct valve. Hopefully it is as simple as that. However, many if not all RV's now use pex as a plumbing source. I would try to trace the line that directs water to the problem and see if it is kinked. You may also need to replace the water faucet in the shower as it may be clogged or damaged.
Since the problem has occured after winterizing, I beleive a shut off valve is most likely the problem. However if the winterizing process somehow missed the hot water side of the shower and it froze, there could be damage within that line or faucet.

Problem solved it was the mixer in the handle. It was clogged and a piece broke off

While at Camp Freightliner last November, I could not get any hot water to the shower. After a couple of days of cold showers, I started asking for help. One gentleman asked me if I had checked the knobs on the outside shower? Puzzled I asked why. He explained how the knobs of the outside shower being open, would short circuit the path to the shower. After checking the knobs, they were both open. I closed both, & had hot water.

It made me feel kind of dumb, but it fixed my problem!

Glad you found your problem. I wonder if you did not get all of the water out of your shower fixture, after winterizing? My bottom plastic plug ( in the shower fixture ), shot out the bottom this winter. I found this last week, when getting ready for a trip to NC. I will install a drain vale to prevent this from happening next year.
