Instant hot water heater Vegas 24.1

Youíre probably tired of this topic, and being a previous poster on the instant hot water heater, I am tired of hearing myself. But...Iíll have one more go about it. I have yet to have a good shower using the hot water heater as it is intended to be used. This is my second water heater (CW messed up the winterization), yet the problem of either all hot or or cold shower persist. Based on advise from forum and calling Girard, I have done the following:

Changed my water pressure valve to an adjustable one set between 45 & 50 PSI.
Set the thermostat to 105, water is warm, but water has little force with just hot water on (wife has trouble rinsing soap out of hair).
Turned the hot water 1/4 way, when hot turned up and added 1/4 way of cold water (turns completely cold)
Turned cold water 1/4 way first, then turned hot on full (Water never gets hot).
Ran with and without water filter at hose with no difference.

I called tech support at Girard, and they suggested lowering heat at thermostat, and running just hot water, but that seems wrong. How do you have a product that doesnít run as designed? Like a real shower.

Any suggestions?
