comment New water heater, now shower goes cold if hot water is used anywhere else in the house
Do you have a hot water re-circulation system? Is it possible that the inlet and outlet of the water heater were reversed? It's also possible that a separate fixture in the house is failing....

comment Why won't this 3/8 male connector for a natural gas dryer fit a 3/8 female connector?
Different countries, different allowed products. For example, this product on Amazon is the sort of connector we use in the US.

The steel pipe is good. It's the flexible pipe that I would be concerned about.

Right, I was worried about "The fitting is so close, it feels like it will thread but just doesn't." meaning that you threaded it on somewhat (along with the photograph of the great big wrench). If you used minimal force, it's probably fine.

comment How can I cut and cap a hot water supply line that has no shut-off after the HWT?
It's also safest to turn off the water heater during this work. Also, if someone opens turns on both the hot and the cold water in a faucet, the cold water could flow the wrong way into the hot water pipes. So, you may want to just turn off all of the water.
