Why Am I Getting Hot Water First Out Of A Rite-Temp Bath/Shower Valve?

The valve may be installed upside down; therefore the mixer cap assembly is mixing water "backwards." 

While observing the cap assembly, find the red/black collar and tab.  This red tab needs to touching the stationary black tab on the cap and in the up position, pointed upwards towards 12:00.  In the picture below, the red tab is facing downward, and in the 5:00 position.

 

To correct the problem: 

1. Turn off  the water supply.

2. Remove the screws on the left & right side of cap, and the remove the collar.  

        

3.  Pull out and rotate the cap until the stationary tab and collar are in the upward position.

     

4.  Reassemble.
