My RVs Shower Goes Hot And Cold When Boondocking, How Can I Fix This?

When I tried to take a shower the water would be hot then get cold then hot again and then cold again. Every time the pump would pump it would take turns getting hot then cold, is this normal for showering while boondocking?

my camper does this when the hot water tank bypass valves are not opened properly. once I get them set correctly the problem stops.

I have seen this several times---
Check your outside 'shower/sprayer'--make sure the hot & cold knobs are turned off.
.....most trailers & motorhomes have an exterior faucet, either in a compartment or mounted in the wall (usually behind a plastic door).......this faucet has a spray head that can be turned off------so if the "cold" & "hot" knobs are left "on"....when you use another fixture inside the RV --it is allowing hot & cold water to "mix".
