Question about Whirlpool Water Heaters
Try using a small amount of thin set, Troll it in and be sure to leave a small gap. Let it dry and then use a high quality silicon caulk. Be sure to let that dry for at least 48 hours.

The problem you have is so common. It is caused by the fact that all of the water lines in the house are the same size, usually 1/2" copper tubing. The only way to eliminate this problem is to use 3/4" tubing as the main lines and branch off with 1/2" near each faucet. Not an inexpensive fix. In the short run tell everyone not to flush the toilet when the shower is in use.

One of the problems with these has been that you must be using at least 1/2 gallon per minute for the burners to ignite. In the summer when the incoming water is already warm, we tend to not use enough hot water to keep it lit. Try turning on the hot water faucet in the sink and 'wasting' some hot water during the shower. If that fixes the problem you can find some other adjustments on the Aquastar website to help lower the temp some.

have you checked the error codes on the heater?
you can do this by powering off the controler and pressing the up and down keys for a few seconds. this should take you into the diagnostics mode scroll using the up and down keys till you find the one that has the letter E on it and that will give you the last 8 error codes write them down and get back to me

Error code 13 is "oxygen depletion sensor" activated.
The first number is a sequence indicator.
If you need the training manual I have it and can send it to you.
I got Rheem to send it to me a while back and it is a big help when working with these units.
It covers th RTG-42, 53, 66 and 74.
