If the sink is hot, then the heater is working fine. Sounds like you may have a restriction in the hot water flow to the rear of the coach. How is the bath sink? What is the flow rate from the shower if only the hot water is on?

Our water heater also does not have any thermostat to adjust, and the water seems to be too hot at the sinks. We have learned to live with it, and just adjust the temps with the cold faucet. That doesn't seem like a good idea, but they all seem to be made that way.

What NPS said. Mine had some construction debris in the line. Took the end off and flushed debris out and it has worked fine.

Stylin, try adjusting your bypass water valve to adjust your water temp, you will allow some cold water to mix with hot. "007"

Me bad! I just found this. By bypass valve, do you mean the bypass on the water heater itself? Ours doesn't have a valve as such, just a lever to flip that appears to be either open or closed; no way to adjust. Thanks.

I know for your home you can get a mixing valve, I am sure you can adapt it for your RV. This allows whatever amount of hot or cold water you want through.
