one year full timing with the the Ecotemp, and a Shurflow, best purchases I have made to date.

Before you start panicking about ventilation, do you really expect to be cooking your water for more than 20 minutes? Cooking meals with propane causes 30x as much CO, and burns more propane but people still panic? If you are using a tank-heater, you should vent, otherwise you are wasting your energy on fear.

I have an eccotemp N40 I picked up for a song on craigslist a few years ago and love it. i can fill my wood fired hot tub in one fill at whatever temp i want and only need to use wood to maintain the temp. I plan on getting a L5 for my bus.

Mass Heat

I have a L5 as well. I have not fired it up yet, as I am still installing plumbing. I am however, (against many people's advice) going to run it through a 20-plate heat exchanger that is plumbed into my underseat heater (I kept one of them). I don't plan to normally run water through it, but I like the idea of bringing an inflatable pool or something for an impromptu hot tub. That way I can heat tons of water by using my engine heat and L5 at the same time. Normally I will only have my sink and outside shower, so I will bypass the heat exchanger.
