Caravan Hot Water Units

Caravan Hot Water Units

Caravan hot water units are among the most important caravan parts, especially if you like to travel in style. Many modern caravans have hot water units and showers built in, but a lot of older models don’t. It is therefore necessary to install your own internal or external hot water system so that you can enjoy the comfort of hot showers and hot water for washing up.


The first thing to think about is the size of your caravan hot water heater. Like other caravan heaters, it is one of your larger caravan parts. They can take up a significant amount of space in smaller vans. Many models heat tap water as it passes through the system, which makes them relatively efficient and compact. However, you need constantly running water to use these. Other models have water tanks of various sizes, and are more effective when you don’t have access to running water.

Gas or Electric?

You can choose four different types of caravan water heater based on their power source. Gas heaters are the most efficient, but 12 Volt electric, 240 Volt electric and solar powered heaters are also common. If you choose a gas heater, you will have to carry around a gas bottle. However, electric heaters need some sort of power source, usually either batteries or mains power.

Other Things to Think About

There are many other things to think about when choosing a caravan hot water system. Where do you want to mount it? How much can you afford to spend? Will it be visible? If so, what do you want it to look like? Asking yourself the difficult questions before buying caravan parts will help avoid problems in the long term.

Water Filters

If you are planning a long trip into the middle of nowhere, the last thing that you want is your hot water system breaking down. It is important to install a caravan water filter to make sure that foreign material dirt doesn’t make its way into your hot water system. If it does, it could cause expensive and hard to fix damage.
