Hot water to sink but not tub?

Hi all, I'm still getting used to my 1975 Airstream International I'm boondocking in for the summer at least. Hot water isn't THAT big a deal right now during the heat wave in Oregon but... I'm getting great hot water to the sink, but not to the tub. The sink is nice and hot, the tub/shower barely lukewarm. The kitchen sink is also not getting the hot water. I thought about letting it run for a bit, but the gauge on my auxillary tank goes from 0 to full in one shower, so I'm not so keen on that. Is there some valve or something I need to open to get the hot water to the tub?

Same symtoms, newer trailer.

Hi, if your trailer is like the newer ones, it could be the cartridge for the Moen diverter valve. I took mine out and all apart, found nothing wrong with it, re-installed it, tried it again, and ended up having to buy a new cartridge to make it work.
