Not recommended. Place the unit about 24 to 30 inches away from the shower head
I have a Bronco 1250 truck camper. I attached the L5 on the outside on the rear wall and removed the Suburban tank heater. To minimize wasting tank water (10 gallons) I fitted a solenoid valve to allow hot water to return to the tank. To use the system we turn on the pump, activate the solenoid for a few seconds to get hot water to the galley sink, turn off the solenoid and have hot water immediatly at the faucect. No wasted water.
Yes, I have been using this for years to heat my hot tub. Have it hooked into a digital temperature controlled outlet and it works better than any pool heater I've used. I mounter it to a two wheel cart and it's very portable. I also hook it up to my pressure washer, wash the dogs with it, etc. An L10 is over kill for a hot tub. It would heat the water extremely fast.
Hello. No, it does not need a propane fuel filter. The L5 is a liquid propane powered water heater and you can use the recommended 20 lb propane tank.

NO. We run ours as long as we like all the time. Somethings not right.
Hello JH! This water heater is designed in a way that you turn on the water and propane when you're wanting to use it and then turn it all off when it's not in use. Be sure that you have enough water pressure to activate the water heater, so if you're pulling from a container of water, you'll need a pump. If you're using city water, you'll be just fine. Also, be sure you are draining and storing it in a warm, dry place when it's not in use to avoid any freeze damage or damage from critters trying to make homes inside of it; especially if you're using it in your barn.

Yes. It comes with everything you will need except the actual tank and the water source
You can return it, it is most likely defective. This happened to me and I returned it. I'm considering trying one from a different manufacturer.
I have a floteck 12 volt pump that puts out about 2.7 gallons per minute. It's perfect for the L-10
No, it is wall-mounted. You could use your own stand (as long as it is very stable) or otherwise wall.
