Forgot the shower head [16] and ended up poking a few holes in a plastic bottle. Kinda worked.:D

Need more water volume. Water was hot.

In the end we left the hoses in and removed the coil for now.
Found a great place to mount it but need to modify the bracket on the back of the coil.

How was the shower ? What did you have to idle your truck at to get the right temp?

The truck had to be cooled right off. After about 1min of running the water was getting warm, after 3 it was friggen hot.
I think the volume of water from the pump was wrong. Not enough.

What pump were you usin ?

A good starter pump is the sureflow 2088 with pressure switch ! Its I think about 3 1/2 gallons a minute !

Also it will mke a difference what the incommin water temp is ! If your pullin from a 40 degree creek its gonna come out a lot cooler then 50-60 degree lake water .

Gotta get an rv pump. Mine pumps so hard i actually had to put a outdoor hose control to control not only the flow but the temperature as well. The more open you have it the cooler the water runs but the more pressure and vice versa. It works great. I think the store i bought it from was called popeyes sailors exchange and marine supplies in north van. Here , try this link.

Search for water pumps. the one I have is a JABSCO 3.3GPM 12V WATER PUMP. They have em used all ther time.
