Shower either too Hot or Too Cold

Anyone have a solution for too hot or too cold shower in a 2012 30' Flying Cloud? When I turn on the shower, the water is scalding hot but to get it to a tolerable level I have to turn the shower knob almost completely off which then kills the water pressure to barely running. Any thoughts on a solution?

Sounds like you may need a new mixit valve...yours might be sticking.

The water heaters provide water at scalding temps, I think 160º.
To make it tolerable, there's a bypass valve that adds cold water.
Make sure your valve is open.

Like what was stated earlier, try the mix valve. You may also try setting your hot water heater to a cooler temperature.

Those water heaters do not have adjustable thermostats.
