All good I never thought about it. They probably sell something small for cabins that are prop. And I have a really good discount. Above 50%

These on-demand heaters are very quite efficient for a hot hub. I build them and have been using mine since spring. I can tell you that a 20lb propane tank is enough to het up the box of my truck in 1.5 hrs now with the auto time switch installed on the heater unit. Then heat it another 3 or 4 times to 105 degrees over a weekend. In my opinion that's not bad for $13 in propane cost. Not to mention using my hot tub when a camp fire ban is on.

Let me know if anyone has questions.

Good point when a fire ban in on. Quick and easy is the direction I'm headed. Even the tub. I know I can just drag a few logs over and put a tarp in but when it's just Ann and I the inflatable tub is the way to go.

I've been using just a regular kids pool for years. Works great

I got a 2 stroke water pump, fills them fast

If your a baller espar makes diesel water heaters. But well over $1000

I've seen smaller copper tube shoe horned into a bbq for a heat exchanger

Bet a coil rolled up to fit a portable pro pain. Fire pit cooking rings that you already have would work mint
Remember winter camping means jeep not your portable housing project so space limited

I'm working on finding an affordable. Not so thirsty on demand. So far the smallest one I found is 135k btu. And you can use these with a fire ban there 94-97% efficient it's warm steam that come out the exhaust vent I'm waiting to hear back from my heating rep he's looking into a oil burning one I'm also looking into what these use in motor homes. Give me a few more hours

http://www.bosch-climate.us/products...rm-520-hn.html I can get that for around 800$ it's ready for propane. And doesn't need power. It is rated for outdoors. It is capable for your hot tube idea and at the same time you can run a cabin off it. You would need a pump still. Because it works off flow. And a small piece of pipe to point the exhaust away.
