We all want to have hot water when we are RVing, but not too hot. Many RVs come with a fixed water heater thermostat set on 1400F and that is just too hot for many people. If this is the case for you, watch Stew Oleson find out the solution: to exchange the fixed thermostat for an adjustable one so you can lower the temperature to where you find it comfortable.

Watch the video below for step by step instructions on how to replace the fixed thermostat in your RV with an adjustable one, in this case, an Atwood model.

  2. We ordered the adjustable thermostat but couldn’t regulate the water temperature.
    Does anyone have a suggestion to correct this problem? Would appreciate any
    hints or ideas. Thank you.

    I would like to see an article on changing out a wall thermostat with a remote feature. It would be great to be able to turn up the heat first thing in the morning from the bedroom, without having to run to the living room wall thermostat to fire up the furnace, or heat pump. Do they make such a thing for RV’s?

    Good archive. Wish Stew still had a show on tv.
    Guess he couldn’t make a deal with a network. To bad!
