Mix in more cold water........

More info needed!

What type of water heater ---------Brand/Model??

If an Atwood.......
Preset t-stats---same set for BOTH electric/propane
Normal t-stat opens at 140*F
ECO t-stat (high temp) opens at 180*F

Optional preset t-stat to replace normal t-stat is available (130*F)
Optional adjustable t-stat to replace normal is available (110*F --- 150*F)



If Suburban.....
Preset t-stats----separate sets for each (120V AC set for electric AND 12V DC set for propane.)
Normal t-stat Opens at 130*F
ECO T-stat (high temp) opens at 170*F

Optional preset t-stat to replace normal t-stat is available but it is for higher temp (140*F)




High water temp is so hot water lasts longer from smaller tank capacity.........mixing cold at end user (faucets)


Now if you have an Atwood XT model...even higher preset t-stat and a 'mixing valve' that gets clogged

Then there is Aquahot and other types.

What do you have?

Depending on which model of water heater you have, you can put in lower cut-off (limit) switches.

The Atwood Adjustable T-stat (93105) replaces the 'T-stat' (normal preset 140*F)

It is adjustable from 110*F to 150*F

Set it for 125*F and it is like residential water heater temps.
Course with 6 gallon water heater it will limit amount of hot water available.
