Question about RTO Atwood DSI-RV Water Heater-6 Gallon
I have an Antwood. Tank is very hot. Water from hot water taps is slighty wamed. The flow is good. I dont get it.

The first question is this
From the outside of your RV is the water heater square or is it longer than it is tall?
If it is square it is a Suburban
If it is longer than it is tall then it is an Atwood
Forest River mostly uses Suburban
How long do you let the unit burn/run before you try the hot water? From a cold start it will take - depending on the outdoor temp. & the gallon size of your water heater, 15 to 30 minutes for the water to get hot.
If you have waited this long then I would suspect the bypass valve is in the wrong position

Double check your incoming power supply to the heaters main control panel with a voltmeter.
Inspect the power supply inlet fuses and replace if necessary.
Remove and clean the inlet water supply filter; impeded water flow will not activate the flow switch.
Measure the water flow from each hot-water faucet. You need at least .75 gallons a minute.
Inspect the water flow control turbine. Mineral buildup on the blades will stop it from spinning.
If this is a new installation, make sure that the hot and cold-water lines are not crossed.
Test your plumbing for a cross connection. Turn off the water supply to you heater. Open all the hot
water faucets. If you get a steady steam of water from any of them, you have a cross connection that needs to be remedied. When all else fails, Rheem's customer support team is great. They have always help me with the most technical questions, even on older and outdated products.
