If you are like us a spit bath is not what we signed up for on our outing nor is that enjoyable; the traditional units on the road have a 6 gallon hot water tank! Really? The average person takes a shower for 7 minutes. Using this number that means you were out of hot water for 4 minutes of your shower. And if you have someone else waiting to take a shower; well you get the chilling point.
So we have a solution just like your house or maybe not like everybody’s house but our units have endless hot water! Yep! Not only do we have endless hot water but we have a water saving technique that will save the cold water that goes to the shower head until it reaches the desired heat you prefer. Not only do you have ready hot water at the shower head but you are saving precious water at the same time!
We use two different types of units both running on diesel fuel; our units all are diesel fuel only! We have a hyuronic system aqua hot or a diesel heated air system from Webasto; these units are typical of what you would see on a high-end yacht. By using diesel we are extremely energy efficient and safety is the first concern. Diesel is less flammable than propane, easier to obtain and easier to store.
By using these types of trailers we are structurally able to carry large amounts of water. Using the spread axle layout we are able to distribute our weight in less likely places rather than underneath a couch which give more room in the live area of your unit. We offer two different type of water storage; custom aluminum tanks built into the trailer its self with baffles to eliminate slosh or custom traditional plastic tanks. Most of our units leave with the capacity of storing 250 gallons of fresh water!
The design is the key in placing the weight accordingly. Not only do we provide huge amounts of fresh water but water pressure is also a key luxury. Like your house has a good 40 pounds of pressure coming out of the faucet our units will equal that. We use pumps that will push up to 5 gallons of water a minute which eliminates the sputtering of water coming out of a faucet. Ironically this helps save water!
As we have 250 gallons of fresh water we have to have a place for it after it is used. Or do we? Technology has come a long way. We offer a new system that has the ability to filter your gray water to use for bathing over and over. Test have been done and even come back with the recycled water as being cleaner that it was to begin with. This reduces that amount of water that you have to refresh your tanks allowing you to stay out longer and reduce the times you have to go to the dump station. In fact our units can even avoid ever having to go to a traditional RV dump station! The simple explanation is it’s a 3 stage filtering process using charcoal, ultraviolet lighting and micor icon filters that you can change out very simply. You can choose the standard gray water tanks as well.
As we stated about the grey water if you chose the filtering system you still might think that you have to dump the black water waste. There are new types of commodes available but we have used with great success; a commode that slide out from underneath a cabinet instead of always being in the way. This unit has a simple foil like pouch that spends into disposable garbage like bag that can go into and dumpster or trash and is self-contain and has many uses twisting after each use. When comparing to the cost of a dump station and the disposal packets the cost is very similar but removes the unpleasant dump factor.
