Creating Romantic Home RV Spot-Hot Water-Outdoor Bath ?

Are there portable water heaters you can buy so you can heat enough water to fill a large tub for two? Heating water on the fire would take awhile. Hot tubs are expensive. Any ideas?

So you could have a nice place to relax at days end with minimal work?

And how many of you have created a 'romantic spot at home?'

I have one of the $120.00, propane tankless water heaters, on my boat. Its been working fine since 2008.

The problem is it only flows 1.4 gallons a minute. By the time you get 30 to 40 gallons of water in a tub, it might start cooling off.

The faster the flow, the cooler the water gets. If you slow down the flow, like when my water filter starts to plug, you get HOT water.

I tried filling my 300 gallon hot tub at the house with a 50 gallon gas water heater.

Didn't make it before the water turned cold. Then had to wait a day for the hot tub heater to get it to 98.

There are portable hotubs that come with their own heater. I saw one a couple of years ago at Big Lots for $439. I would love to have one but we are fulltime and campgrounds would probably frown on that

Nah, give it a try. Just think of the new friends. Just where do you think you'd be located and the date.

I've often wondered about , popping out a kiddie pool
May still try, lol. Except it gets cooler in the evening, so you'd have to have heat.

Although not in or for our RV, we did by a portable hot tub at an RV show. They were marketed to RV'rs who have an RV lot at a resort (& I have seen them at Hearthside Grove in MI), but we wanted one for our S&B home because it'd run on standard household 110V. Anyway, the smallest model for 2 people is 140 gallons. Outside of needing a trailer to haul it, but as Jan pointed out, a CG would probably have an issue with using their water to fill it, let alone the time it'd take to empty when you have to leave.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

I've seriously been toying with the idea of picking up one of these for the RV... I'd have the room to store it in one of my basement compartments...

You'd have to have a special RV park to use a portable hot tub. You'd be using a lot of water and electric and think of emptying it, getting it dry enough to store without molding and most importantly - have a nice private place to put it. Also, check into the liability with a pool where kids could have access, fall in and drown. Pools usually require fencing in many municipalities.
