    As of late it has been a total crap shoot if I get a hot shower or not at the j. About half the time I get a shower the water is warmish at best. Anybody else noticing this? I dunno if it is because they are trying to save money and turned the temp down on their water heaters or what, but it sucks.

    I have noticed this as well, and when checking Trucker Path, it kind of seems to becoming a trend. I don't like PFJ anyway, so eff em.

    Been that way the whole last year for me. About 50/50 chance when I go Flying J. Never had that issue at other big chains.

    And when you do get decent temperature water, it gets scalding hot all of the sudden for a few seconds then returns to normal temperature.
    Does this consistently during my shower!!!!

    I don't like them either. However, sometimes they are the only options depending on where I'm at. I fuel at Casey's or little America as much as possible, because they are considerably less money....by alot usually compared to the J. The downfall to that is usually their parking lots are tiny and fill up very quick, so I tend not to bother. Usually when I get in I just head to the back of the lot where all the fat drivers won't park.....so I can usually find a spot.

    Well, that is my usual approach. However, once a week on my reset I break down and take a shower. :D
