I added an adjustable thermostat to our Atwood water heater. It took about five minutes to replace the non-adjustable thermostat. It's so nice to no longer have scalding water. Ours is a ten gallon heater and we haven't had any issues running out of hot water with showers.

I purchased mine from a dealer while traveling but this is a link to the best online price I could find.

Very cool Russ, I've always hated the high temperature of the hot water and wondered what the answer was. You have found it and I'll be getting one of these.
Thanks!

There is only one thermostat and it controls the temp on electric or gas.

Just curious won't you have less hot water and shorter hot water run time? As the HW temp comes down, won't that allow for quicker depletion when the cold water mixes thus cooling the hot water quicker?

Salada, you are correct that lowering the temp will deplete the amount of hot water available faster, assuming you adjust the temp mixing valve to the same temp as you have in the past. I don't mind the hot temps as I can take a longer shower. If I had small kids camping with me, that would be another issue.
