Yep! We have one of those.

Re: Heat exchangers for hot water?

If you're happy with running the engine whenever you want hot water then the Glind is a simple, compact and reliable solution. There are also a number of similar products used on 4WD's other than Glind. You can even make your own if you feel so inclined.

Hi Jeff, if the tank you have is a woody's water heater get it back in there somehow, worth their weight in gold . If it is and you decide that you don't want it and it needs to go then pick me pick me.

Sorry just noticed your question.
My unit is as old as the van is: 23 years, it gives adequate hot water, but the engine needs to be running. Therefore this (outdoor) shower gets little use.
