Single handle shower is too sensitive-got burned!

This problem has been getting worse with time. It is now almost impossible to find a comfortable warm adjustment. I can just barely move the handle (tap it softly) and it goes from hot to cold instantly or vice versa. If I bump the handle accidentally, it causes the ole shower hop! I cant seem to find the brand of shower valve that was installed in my 2004 Country Coach Inspire and I am not even sure if that would solve the problem. I am considering just replacing the whole thing with a Moen, but access looks impossible. Any advise or experience would be appreciated.

If changing to a new control with built in thermostat is not possable, you could tee in a anti scald valve.
Place it somewhere between the hot and cold supply lines, where you can reach them. Not to tough a job with Shark Bite fittings.

A couple thoughts...

1. How hot does the water from your water heater get? That doesn't totally answer the lack of adjustment but could play a part.

2. Not sure this strictly applies but here is a short video on how scald protectors work in a S&B.

3. Rebuild valve.

A couple thoughts:
1. Leave hot water tank off and start taking cold showers.
2. Replace the single shower valve.
3. Spend $25 and install a Anti-Scald Pressure Balancer.

Don't know what brand Country Coach installed but I changed my Phoenix brand, Winnebago shower faucet to a single handle Moen. I'd check the Country Coach forum to see if any other CC owners have changed out their faucet.

I can't help with the MH because my shower didn't get hooked up but I have the same thing in the shower @ the S&B's I mean just look at the knob and it gets hot, so I went downstairs to the water heater and just turned it down a notch or 2 and has helped 100%,
