In our master bath whoever showers first in the morning gets a lukewarm shower while the second shower is hot. Even if you let the water run for five minutes before getting in, it's still luke. The supply lines run only through the basement where it is NOT cold and the entire run is no more then 10 feet from HWH to shower. In addition, there is another bathroom right next to the master that does NOT have this same problem, it's hot from the start. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Check to see if you have a temperature limit stop inside the handle of the faucet. It can be adjusted to produce more hot water. The idea behind the limit stops is to prevent small children from getting scalded.

Thanks Tom, I'll check. The only thing that's puzzling is that the second shower is hot, so it wouldn't seem that it's limiting the hot water, instead just not getting enough hot water to the fixture.
