Hot Water Heater

Has anyone installed a propane on demand HWHeater on onbard?

I have a propane stove & I'm considering this as an option, but looking for input to see if I'm crazy. Found a unit that ignites with 2 D batteries, relatively cheap on E-Bay.

Am I crazy?

They fell out of favour after a couple of folks suffocated from them about 20 years ago. Maybe the technology is better today.
