Instant Hot Camp Shower in a Box

I can't believe I called it a hot water heater. It's just a water heater, and usually heats cold water!

In this video I mount an instant hot water shower in a Pelican style case, to take with my on my long overlanding and camping trips. It'll make things so much nicer, since I found the wet wipes just weren't cutting it in the desert last summer!

Note that finding fittings for this was difficult, but the ones I have listed below are a perfect fit.

NOTES:
- Heater unit takes 1/2” BSPP fittings on all water and propane in/out.
- 3/8” hose is used in my kit, and you can use 1/2” barb with it if 3/8” isn’t available.
- The quick disconnects and the barbs that attach them to the hose are 3/4” GHT (garden hose thread), and this is the standard thread found on garden hoses.
- Avoid mixing metals on the fittings. A brass fitting connected to a stainless steel fitting is likely to corrode quickly. If you have to mix metals, do not mix them on the heater unit itself. If it corrodes to the heater unit, you might never get the fittings off!
- You can purchase shower (https://amzn.to/2VfNyjE) and pump (https://amzn.to/3ahwGx2) separately.
- The propane tank mount was unavailable on Amazon when I created this video, but can be found from various sellers on eBay.
