Hey Joolca, are you still monitoring this forum?
If so, I have a logistical question:
Are you able to give us some sense of how many hot showers might be derived from a 5-lb
or an 11-lb propane tank? I'm talking about those cute little mini-tanks that some manufacturers produce (such as Flame King).
You are in a van forum here, and we live with profound space limitations. Your promotional materials show your products hooked up to a conventional 20-lb BBQ propane tank, but most of us cannot carry tanks that large for lack of space.
Furthermore, those of us with older B vans, and some newer ones, cannot hook an adapter or a splitter to our integrated propane tanks. In my case, I have a chassis leaf spring impinging on my undermounted tank area, resulting in no room to hook up extra hardware that would allow me to divert propane from that tank. I need to use satellite tanks for non-integrated propane uses.
Therefore, if we were to use your products, we'd need to fuel them using a smaller portable tank, but I don't have a feel for how much mileage we would get out of those, which speaks to the question of whether it would be worth it.
Any insight you might have would be appreciated.
