Dig out new manual. Look for plumbing cutoff valves.

Peace and Blessings..

If it isn't a valve shut off someplace (I'm not sure there would be one) , then perhaps a problem with the cartridge in the shower.

One thing to double check. In our trailer, a 2006 Classic, I have to let the hot water run for quite some time before it actually becomes hot - not sure why, the pipe run shouldn't be much different in length than the run to the galley sink.

Presume you let it run long enough to be sure it isn't working?

From what you have said, I think the problem is with the cartridge in the shower valve. Sometimes they get installed upside down which effectively switches the hot and cold sides. If you are opening the shower valve while turned all the way hot and only cold comes out, turn the valve to the cold setting and wait a bit and see if it gets hot. If so all you have to do is pull the cartridge and revolve it 180 degrees and you will be set.

There is an inspection panel in the closet that will allow you to see the pipes as they attach to the shower faucet. I would take a look there to see if there is anything obvious. I can't imagine what the problem would be other than the cartridge in the shower head.

Good luck.
