Is this operating on electricity, or gas?

Not sure what you mean by "too hot".

You can buy an adjustable thermostat to replace the fixed unit.

Hot water too hot.

Assuming that you are using an Atwood hot water heater you may have a failed thermostat with water temperature controlled by the Emergency Cutoff sensor. Try this video. The troubleshooting can't hurt.

Same problem in our 2007. From what i understand the temp "normal" can be 140 ,which still seems Hot. However our temp shot pass 140 .
Tech replaced the sensor kit (Both as mentioned above) and problem fixed.

Certainly check out the thermostat and the general operation. If you are checking at a mixing faucet is is possible the cold water is partially blocked from sediment. The water can get scalding hot and it is a matter that needs to be addressed.

Can these two thermostats cause intermittent issues?

I had filled up my water system after taking my AS out of storage over the winter and filled up the lines and water heater. I ran all the faucets on both cold and hot to get the air out. Then I went out for the weekend. The AS was connected to city water at the campsite. I noticed when running the water heater on gas it seemed to be running longer than normal. I ran some hot water from the kitchen and it seemed hotter than normal. I let the hot water run in the kitchen sink and more air came out. Ran the bath faucet and more air. Finally both faucets stabilized. After that the water heater seemed to shutoff normally.

I wonder if I should replace the two thermostat sensors. I have the Atwood 6 gal gas/electric electronic ignition model.
