Completely Portable Hot Water System - Propane/Battery/Heater/Pump
This has probably been done but can't say I've seen it on the portal. (Okay, I didn't exactly search.)
Just your typical components but not tied to a specific vehicle or trailer. Used it for the first time camping this weekend and it worked great.
The box I found at WalMart. The pump, battery and propane bottle are all 'clamped' down with 1/4" threaded rod through the bottom and side. I added the hardie board for a little extra rigidity and support. Note the supports that hold open the lid so I can use it as a hanger for the EcoTemp.
The EcoTemp and all hoses pack in to remaining space you see in the box. It's tight, but it fits.
Part of the idea is I can set this up 'down by the river' or lakeside and have unlimited hot water for showers (until the propane runs out or battery dies of course).
Still need to add a charging wire with Anderson Plugs so I can charge it while driving, or just tie it in to the future battery system on my trailer.
