Hi People just wondering if anyone has got one of these new hot water showers.
They are a instant gas hot water shower ive seen em advertised but haven't seen one in real life.
Does anyone know if they are as good as they sound

The bushranger or Black Diamand units are great. The only issue to be aware of it that it will only heat water 30-35 above ambient temp of the water going in which may see the unit reaching 50 Deg C or may be not (Manufacturers words not mine)
That's normally fine but if you do as I do and travel a fair bit in the high country then the unit struggles a bit as the water going in can be at or just above freezing.

Ok thanks
I rarely go places that cold so no drama there.
I believe the unit can be installed permanently on a hard wall of camper or caravan is this true?
Whats the pressure like?

Cheers

The pressure is great as well.

It is portable unit but not a weatherproof unit. My unit came with my new camper and I changed the position the camper manufacturer wanted me to run it from as it would have sat out in the weather all day that said it also has a hot flue so outside is where you want it running,once it is set up you just turn the water on and away it goes.
Also there is an LPG cylinder to think of.

For the money, I would go for a under bonnet shower, imho a lot less mucking about. Had one for 14 years and wouldn't swap it for quids.

Hi
Can be installed on an external surface
But the flue opening cannot be near ANY opening into the van or camper
