More about this water heater:

Congratulations, you're preparing to connect the world's easiest way to heat water on the go. Before we start, let's take a look at what comes with the heater. Included is a CSA listed regulator for use on a standard propane tank, on/off shower head and hose, garden hose adapter, and instruction manual, heat shield, and, of course, the water heater itself. You will need to provide two D cell batteries for ignition. Connecting your Eccotemp L5 portable water heater is not difficult, and should be completed in less than 15 minutes.

Let's take a look at the installation from start to finish. Look first at the connections. We have a gas input. A compression fitting for attachment of the hose is already attached. The water input, water output. Teflon tape should always be used on water connections to ensure a tight seal. A small roll is included in the hardware package with the heater. Next you will attached the shower hose to the output connection in the middle of the bottom. We will find a convenient location to hang the water heater. Weighing only about 12 pounds, the L5 can be hung virtually anywhere.

Next we will attach the propane hose to the water heater and to the propane tank. Never over-tighten the gas connections, as this can cause damage to the water heater and leaking of gas. Always check for gas leaks before operation. Soapy water gives a good way of detecting any gas leaks. Now we will attach the garden hose adapter and the garden hose. Be sure that the adapter has the rubber washers in it to assure a water-tight fit. The on/off switch on the bottom of the heater should be turned into the on position. Turn on your shower head and, within seconds, you will have all the hot water you need.

Shower temperature is adjusted by using the water and gas regulator knobs on the front of the heater. For higher temperatures, turn the gas knob towards the larger marks and the water adjustment knob to the smaller marks. Conversely, for lower temperatures, the gas knob should be to the smaller marks, and the water knob to the larger marks. The nice thing about Eccotemp water heaters is they provide convenient and portable hot water. Warm showers at camp, cottage, washing horses, dogs, RVs, arenas. Anywhere you need hot water. Eccotemp, hot water where and when needed. Heating water for the world.

We found that some times the public restrooms are not so good looking so we got this one and we love it camping and taking 2-3 shower a day is worth it just make sure you have the right plugs in the right ones or you will be not using it for a wile and do make sure the water hose is tight so it does not splash up and fry all the cables inside we call and the send us a new one great for that warranty you mess up and they replace it we love it not too hot for me to hat for my hubby perfect

This portable water heater is awesome. I am an advent hunter during seasons of course and i needed something to scent down with other than the hanging water bag which isn't the greatest thing. So i found this and i must say I have been getting the hottest showers and fell in love with this water heater. I use a plastic 55 gal drum and a 1/3 hp sump pump from home depot to my generator for power and 20 lb propane tank and a multipurpose utility room from wal-mart and i stay clean as a whistle. weather your camping, playing in the mud, or even after a hurricane with no power or hot water you can always depend on this heater. This is a hunters dream! Thank you Camping World!!
