Not normally. While there is an aftermarket T -Stat that is adjustable, the standard comes with a 140F preset one. I know that is way too hot, the thought is you mix it with cold, use less hot water and the length of time on the tank full goes longer.
If you are getting "extremely" hot, hotter than 140F- more like 150-160, there are times the T stat gets loose from the holder and not touching the tank good.
Also when in shower the water cycles from hot to cold first cold then hot ,cant seem to get steady temp no matter how it is adjusted
Sorry I missed this question before, IF this "only" happens in the shower, not in the kitchen sink or bath sink, then I can explain how I do it in the shower.
Since I know the hot comes out really hot on pure hot once it pushes out the cold in the pipe, I only crack open the "hot" and let it purge the cold until it runs hot.
Then mix some cold a little bit and slowly increase cold until it tames down the hot. Then it seems to tweak in better. I might have to tweak down the hot as it it too hot or tweak up the cold but it is good from then on.
This method works on ours. That said we also have a Oxygenic's shower head and a variable speed water pump. Both are upgrades to the standard Sunline issue.
If you way over crank the hot or cold at first, it seemed to fight me all the time which sounds like what you are experiencing. Maybe try just hot part way open, then blend cold and then tweak. Maybe it will help.
Have a good camping trip. Take pics and post. We like to "see" your Sunline adventures.
