Question Adjusting Water Heater Temp?

Greetings all,

First post, so please forgive any mistakes in protocol I might make.

I read through the owner's manual (maybe too quickly) but recall nothing about how to adjust the water heater. Is it possible? It's too hot!

We have a 19' Bambi.

Thank you,
Gastrolith

My thought on this.

Welcome to the forum.


Hi, I could be wrong, but I don't think you can adjust the water heater on newer model Airstreams. As for being too hot, it depends on the temperature of the outside water coming in. And in your case, [Nevada] I bet it's fairly warm to begin with. Even in my home I have to turn my faucets farther to the hot side during the winter and more toward the cold side during the summer. In the cold icey campgrounds my trailer's shower has to be almost as hot as it will go. And in the hot areas my shower is turned very close to the cold side. Both of my sink faucets seem to be fairly normal, but the shower control is pretty sensitive.

HI,

Welcome to the forums Gastrolith.

I have a 2005 Bambi. The stock water heart does not come with an adjustable thermostat. However, you can buy an adjustable thermostat from Atwood and install it yourself. These are available online. I have done this myself and it works.

I've learned to deal with the temperature. Not so bad. Unfortunately, I don't take the AS out often enough be bothered by the temp. Thanks for the follow-up.
