Hot water systems for camping

Summer holidays are approaching – time to start planning your next camping trip!

Here are some simple tips to help you get the most out of your Luxline Portable 8 while camping:

Get the Right Accessories

Make sure you’ve got all the accessories you need before you head out on your great adventure. We suggest:

Shower Stand

Hot Water Systems for Camping 2Sold as an optional accessory, the shower stand is easy to dismantle and pack up. It’s great because it frees up your hands – without it you’d have to hold onto the shower head.

Please note that this stand works best when connected to a mains water supply, as it requires significant water pressure.

Shower Tent

A shower tent will make your outdoor showering experience that much more comfortable! Not only will it provide more privacy, it will keep you warm.

Water Pump

The standard 4.3L pump that is included with your Luxline Portable 8 will provide enough water pressure for a shower. However there are particular situations where more water pressure is required. More info about pumps can be found in our article: Choosing the right type of caravan water pump.

Stretchy Hose

Stretching from 2.5m to 7.5m, this hose provides added range and mobility. It’s really useful when you are connecting your Luxline hot water system to a mains water supply, such as a tap at a caravan park.

The stretchy hose is great for camping because it’s much more compact and light than a regular hose.

Meanwhile, it’s also a useful investment if you ever want to use your hot water system for dog washing.

Test Before You Leave Home

One of the most important things that novice campers often forget is that you should always test out your gear before you leave! You don’t want to wait until you’re out in the middle of nowhere to discover that your gas tank is empty, for instance.

Research Where You’re Going

Different camping scenarios will require different equipment. For instance, if you’re staying at a caravan park with access to mains water, you won’t need to pack your own. And if you’re planning to use a river or creek as your water source, you’ll need to make sure that you pack a water filter to prevent damage to your hot water system.

Make Sure You’ve Got Enough Water

This is the most important consideration in any camping situation. If you are heading out to the bush in your 4WD, you will need to pack enough water not just for showering, but for drinking. You need water to live!
