Travato Water Heater Question

Help Gang!!
We are leaving for our first dewinterized trip in a few days. Tonight I filled our Travato (2015 2nd gen) with water and turned on the water heater. After 20 or so minutes I went out to see if I had hot water. Weird. I have hot water in kitchen sink but not in the bathroom (obviously would be better if those were switched). By bathroom I mean the sink, not the toilet water wand. I let it run for a VERY long time. No hot water. But plenty hot in kitchen. Did I miss something really easy? I did not check the outdoor shower. Thanks all!

YES, you did.. Two options spring to mind

First: (Low probability) if you have a 3-valve bypass did you CLOSE the bypass valve? you clearly opened the other two but did you CLOSE the bypass valve.. And again I suspect you did.

Second:(High probability) Do you have an exterior shower.

#1 Cause of "NO HOT WATER" is the outside shower

Mixing valves open.. Shower heat cut off closed.
Solution: Close mixing valves

Home is where I park it!

Hi gang. I cracked the case of the hot water issue. My taps are switched somewhere. The hot comes out of the one that says C and the cold comes out of the one that says H. Go figure.
