    Eccotemp L5 Portable Tankless Water Heater is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 50.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY - almost burned my RV down The design of this unit is flawed. The battery sparker is on the bottom, directly next to the gas inlet. I came around the corner of my house trailer to find the propane line melted off from the EccoTemp unit and a large open flame against the side wall of the trailer. The metal skin was wrinkling from the fire and the interior wall was slowly burning. Had I not been there with a fire extinguisher the entire RV would have burned up. So as long as the gas is flowing to it, this piece of garbage is a fire hazard. It's amazing they are still allowed to be sold. When I contacted the company, they offered to send me another one, no thanks. Would give zero stars if I could.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Carlos I bought this because my stock attwood tank had a leak. I was able to replace my electric and propane water heater with this cheaper unit by doing some plumbing. Problem with this heater is it shuts off every once in awhile but all you have to do is turn the water switch off and on real quick to reset the pressure switch inside to start making hot water again. Overall it delivers hot water and it never runs out. Not sure exactly how much propane its really going to use yet though. Make sure to plumb this thing outside like I did if your going to use it as a permanent fix because the exhaust is smelly and deadly.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from tankless water heater I love my new tankless water heater it was the hit of the camp out..my family was lining up for hot water to do dishes it was so wonderful to have for all kinds of reasons evengiving my brothers puppy a shower when she got dirty..lol... The only problem I had was not knowing I needed a water pressure coupler between the camp ground faucet and the water heater ..The tube separated and blew up because the pressure was to great so I purchased a pressure coupler and Im going to use it next time ..I feel you should either make it part of the package or at least make sure people know that it needs to be done..thanks...sharon

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hot Water Right Now! 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!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A GREAT IN-BETWEEN AND BEYOND WATERHEATER SHOWER I needed more than just an outdoor shower and this EccoTemp so far has been a wonderful experience thanks to the included fittings and gas regulator hose. I've had it a couple of months hooked up to my camp water system thanks to the 1/2 pipe threads making the connections was as simple as I needed it to be. I didn't need the included shower head -instead I use a low water use showerhead I already have. The plastic shower head bracket seems a bit flimflam and not too rugged for a camp product but if you make your own shower head from 1/2 PVC pipe and make a mount bracket with a plastic 1 X 2 material that can hang over the shower wall like I did who cares. The water heater itself is enough for me!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product, excellent service. I use this when at the beach, it's great for washing off sand and such, and keeps the mess outside the RV. Hang it just about anywhere - on a post, a fence, even the ladder of the RV. I also use it at home for giving one of our horses a warm bath, although the nozzle hose could be longer for that. As received, the nozzle hose did not screw onto the heater - the threads were different. I called the service number, they explained the problem (packaging error at the factory) and they shipped me a new nozzle and hose that same day. Longer hose and better quality than the original.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Eco-temp on demand hot water heater The unit its self works good (not great ) enough hot water but you have to keep playing with the controls. Also the hose that connects to the shower head isnot very good. I had to use my shower head because the outer skin swelled up and started to leak. Using a 35psi water pump, after contacting eco-temp of this problem they had no replacement hose to fullfill there warranty, but wanted to sell me a premium hose (being a stainless steel hose) for $29.00. I feel that this product for the price I paid could have came with a better hose.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Portable Tankless Water Heater ECO5 I use this on camping trips to avoid filling up the grey tanks on the RV. I also use it at home to give my chihuahuas a dog bath with constant warm water. Best thing out there and I am happy I bought this one. At one time I stayed at Morro Bay for 8 days and they had no sewer hookups so I used this heater to wash the dishes and for much more so I didn't have to drain the tanks at all. They had good showers so they were good to use. This heater gives you instant hot water and works well with my small propane cylinder.

    Does it have an adapter for hard wired 12v power?

    What do you mean by fitting "standard" garden hose? 5/8" or 3/4"?

    Is your supplied adapter female/female? And, as the title question asked, what, exactly is the other dimension besides 1/2"? Is it 1/2"F x 3/4" F? It'd be nice for you to publish this information because we can purchase garden hoses in different sizes. I don't want to get the wrong kind.
    Asked by: Birdergirl
    Regardless of hose inside diameter, a standard GHT(Garden Hose Thread) is 3/4". Male end of the garden hose connects to a 3/4"F to 1/2"NPT adapter which is screwed onto the "Water Input" port on the bottom of the water heater.

    Can the L-5 stay out in the rain and snow?

    Asked by: Vern
    Not recommended. The unit is weather resistant, but overall life of the unit will be optimal if not left out intentionally.
