I own a 2009 res391 5th wheel. I have 6 gallon hot water tank. I can not get a continuous flow of hot water for more than 5 to 10 seconds at a time. It is intermittent with ice cold water for 30 to 40 seconds then back to hot water for 5 to 10 seconds or so. Why am I not getting a continuous flow of hot water (in the shower, kitchen nor bathroom sinks)? What do I need to do to correct this issue?

Check your outside shower valves, make sure both are turned off.

At the 2017 TX rally my Hot Water did the same thing on my 2009 337RLS I found that a spring loaded valve on the top hose connection had broken.
I was able to get it out and it has worked fine.
Look at the Atwood diagram.
