Well, if it's the same mixing valve as the '17 Classic, gushing water is very possible. First, OFF the Alde, OFF the pump or hose to the trailer. Then run hot water until your air cushion is expended. Turn the knob to the + or Hot position stop. Remove knob screw, pull knob off, twist it so the pointer is now at the - or Cold position. Reinstall the knob and screw. ON, Alde, water, twist the valve to max and see if the water is hot enough.
It is possible to unscrew the valve stem from the mixing valve, and if water (hot) pressure is present, there will be "Water in the People Tank"; always a bad day in submarines and Airstreams. And internal parts will be sprayed with the water across the trailer.
The '17 Classic thread was Much Ado About Alde. Perhaps time for some one to start a 2020 Alde Knowledge Base thread. Always easier to learn when all the user knowledge is in one place.
Lifetime learning is the operating system for 'streamers. Keep safe out there.
