    Default water heater

    What are you using for water heater? We want to install about a 6 gallon water heater on our rig for shower. Just got back from Alaska, we are now preparing our rig for the next journey. We are not taking the trailer for the next journey. thx

    I ended up building an enclosure and mount for a portable tankless unit on the back of my camper. I didn't want to fuss with the exhaust so outside worked best for me. I also put the shower outside but it sends hot water inside for my sink as well. The unit is an Eccotemp L5.

    honestly.... you rarely need to bath in conventional ways. Bath everyday of course...... just not conventionally. Soap with water rinse is ancient technology that we do out of habit now even though there is better methods. Search No-Rinse Body Wash and No-Rinse Shampoo. Uses only ounces of water. Large adult wipes..... or standard baby wipes as a wash cloth you can burn next day to start the fire (along with your toilet paper).

    Isotemp water heater using engine heat is very nice for our Sprinter. Water is hot after a 20 minute drive and stays hot for hours. It also has a 750 watt element.

    All the best,
