My bug out/camp shower build is complete. :embarassed: Back story: I had a bathroom ceiling that started peeling on me and it just kept getting worse and worse. I decided that I was going to fix the peeling issue and start the work on a Friday and hopefully finish by Sunday. This is our only full bathroom with shower/tub. So it had to be finished quickly. Long story short, the bathroom needed a complete ceiling drywall replacement and it was not going to be dry by Monday. We decided to bathe in the water hose outside. It was early spring and unusually warm, but the ground had not thawed. This meant the water pipe temp was around 50 degrees. The water burned when it touched your skin. We ended up washing out of large pots and pans filled with hot water for a week. This really sucked. I decided this will not happen again. I was in search of an emergency shower that could be attached to a garden hose and provide enough heat to be comfortable. This was one time my wife totally agreed with me and gave me a unlimited budget to get it done! This is what I built! There are many camp showers out there, but I own a few boats and knew there are small marine propane water heater systems out there. My research led me to the Eccotemp water heater line. They have several models that range in different Gallons per minute and are very affordable. The build: I purchased an Eccotemp L5 to get started, $105 shipped. The L5 is the only one that comes with a cheap on/off shower head with 3 different massage settings and uses 2 D cell batteries for the igniter. I wanted one of the larger systems but did not want to shell out the money if the water heater did not work as expected and would still need a shower head with a built in on/off switch. The heater arrived and I hooked it up and it worked great. Way better than expected. But there was one problem. I did not want to leave it out in the elements. I wanted a portable stand for it so that I could move it for storage. Another problem was the hookups on the bottom of the unit were difficult to get to (tight space). I wanted to get some kind of quick connect for the hoses.
