hot water mixing valve

I know that some of the motor homes have a hot water mixing valve to set a constant shower and sink temp. I am thing I would like to upgrade my 26P to this system. Has any one else done this? I also am thinking hard about a circulation system to save water. this would help on those extended dry camps.
It seems like we use a gallon to set the hot water every time.

Hi chief,
was that an Atwood mixer, it seems they have had a bad rep but I have installed mixers in motels and homes with very little problems.

We have an Atwood mixer on our Fleetwood Expedition and have replaced the mixer valve twice, once under warranty and one with ext. warranty plan. In my research when we had problems, there seems to be other mixer valves that are more reliable than Atwood. I would not add one to a motorhome.

I have purchased a Watts Regulator Hot Water Tempering Valve 70A. Will be installing it in a few weeks. Check Ebay.

chief02.
I did not realize that the atwood was really the watts, I guess it makes since now, thanks.
Erstanso,
We will have to stay in contact on this. I really need to protect my wife and I, It is too easy to bump the valves in the shower, we are old :-) and can't jut that fast anymore.
Buffalo Bill,
thanks for the comment, we are studying any thing for info that comes our way. hopefully we can make this easier for those who come behind us. I will make sure the new valve is in a position to replace easy and carry one spare..
