Our water works fine when on propane.  When electric it gets warm but not hot. 

 

You can take a shower if you use straight hot water.  Use any cold with it and it is to cold. 

 

Suggestions.

I wonder what amperage your are getting from where you plugged in at?  Is it 15, 30 or 50 amp service?

Lyle,

How old is your unit. You may have a bad heating element. I just had the same problem and when we replaced the element we go HOT water.

Check your thermostat on the tank if you are comfortable with 120v current. It may be opening the circuit before the water temp is up.

I think your experience may be common. The electric is adequate but for really hot water we have to turn on the propane but it doesn't take too long if the water is already "hot" with the electric.

The lowest setting on my thermostat is 120 degrees and I have mine set at 125 so that the ratio of hot to cold is less and I can take a longer shower.

We have the same problem.   We were told we need to replace some part or other, but, sorry, I'm not sure what part.  We are having it done at Independence RV in FL. in the fall.  In the meantime, we are using the burner.  We have had problems off and on with the Oasis unit in our 2008 Dutch Star from the start, although we have talked to others who get plenty of hot water when set on just AC 1.  We have tried on AC1 and AC1&2,  to no avail.  If I find out the name of the part, I will post it.

Great, thanks for letting us know as this serves as a record what to look for if one of us should have the same problem.
