I use a triton 5l on demand for a wet suit heater during winter dives. I am currently planning to use it for my CT conversion. I'm planning on mounting it outside and run the hot water back in for the shower and sink.

still love my $4.00 32 cup coffee maker from Goodwill. Hot water on demand for washing dishes, stinky body parts and yes you can even use it for hot chocolate, hot tea, and for the coffee singles.

what about hot water in wyoming like walk the winds? for me its the red porcleans tea kettle! or the country guy hot water heator.

ever took a tea kettle bath?


there are several diffrent methods out there from a old pressure cooker with a shrader valve and sink sprayer nossel. I have one and use it.

have seen a coleman single burner stove with copper tubbing in a coil like a whisky still above the burner.

lots o ideas out there.
Plans. there was supposed to be plans to be followed when I built this thing. Opps! AH, gee, tum,tee tum. I think I forgot about the plans 2 years ago. ------Tow vehicles, 1995 ford explore, 1994 ford ranger, 1993 ford F-150, 2009 4x9 Off road teardrop, on harbor freight greatly modified frame.

We use a Triton instant hot water heater, plumbed and mounted on the back door of our GNAT 5X8 cargo trailer conversion It works really well, and supplies instant (after about 15 seconds) hot water to both our kitchen and shower. I plumbed it so park-side water comes in to the heater (with a "t" so cold-water can go to sink and shower), then split the hot water output to the sink and the shower... At 2.5 Gallons Per Minute, it never get's dcold and never runs out. I use a 12ft propane rubber hose to run from our propane tanks on the tongue to the heater...Here are a few images of the mounted heater:

Ran across this 'iHeat Hot Spot' instant hot shower that might work for camping when water & electricity are available.
I'd never seen one before. Any thoughts or experience? ... 29?prdNo=1
