um LOL on getting a "dancer" for some of their shots.

I got this for my wife on her birthday:

Coleman Hot water on demand. I have no idea how it works, but hopefully it works well enough to stoke us out on those cold front southerly days.

Have only gone so far as a couple of gallon jugs of hot water in a cooler.
Very pleasing when rinsing cold feet after peeling off boots.
Can also be poured down the wetsuit neck before removal.

I wonder how well that Road Shower will heat water.

There is another product I am considering trying available from REI or other good camp supply source.

I think a heat exchanger is a better solution. With the engine running, the engine's hot water passes through a sealed chamber where it heats the pumped flow of shower water.

I could build that with PVC pipe for under 20$ (USD).

My concern would be potable water. Many plastics offgas when hot.

Really nothing new here. Solar showers for camping have been around for decades. I used a small truck inner tube with a hose clamped to it on the roof of my pickup for years. After a session surfing I would run the water into my wetsuit and warm up, then shower. Enough water for 2 good showers.
