We recently purchased a 2014 Washington. The hot water is over 120o and scoldingly hot. Does anyone know where you can turn down the tempurature.

You can't turn the temps down. I agree it's to hot.

We had the same problem with our 2013 305SK. We had our dealer replace original non adjustable thermostat with an adjustable one. Its made by Atwood, same as the water heater. It has 5 heat settings, A thru E, and B or C is plenty hot. Model # GC10-4E. Works great.

While the WH temperature is set pretty high, we found it not to be an issue because we'll use less hot water when needed because we temper it with more cold water.

The only issue with that is safety with young kids as they could burn themselves with the water.

Yes....The reason for my initial posting was because of the "safety issue". Factory setting in excess of 120o is too high.

Sorry guys, it's just the DW and I, I didn't give thought to children, so yes you are correct. If I had children travelling with us I would probably add a device to temper it down some.

I may be mistaken but I thought the I read that you could change the temp by sliding the gas venturi regulating the temp. For the electric part I'm not sure. Have to get the manual out again.
