    Normally tank, Shurflo, heater, hose reel.

    Dave Willis has it tank, heater, pump, hose reel. The Shurflo pumps are good for 60 degrees C max, so as you won't use any more than 40 degrees tops at the heater this is well within specs.

    Like spruce has already mentioned the heater goes after the pump. You just simply run a hose from the outlet of the pump to the inlet of the heater. Then on the oulet of the heater run a hose to the hose reel.

    I have mine just mounted on an old pure freedom trolley that I still use to pump water to my wfp setup static in the van by the side loading door. The gas tank is strapped to the trolley where the water container use to go.

    When I'm running the portable hot water heater I just leave the side loading door open a wee bit. Alternatively if need be I can also run a gaden hosepipe from an outside tap and directly connect it to the inlet of the heater if I want just to use hot tap water instead for the likes of cladding cleaning etc. Then just switch back to using pure for windows. I tend not to use hot tap water for house washdowns now as I live in a very hard water area so is not ideal getting tap water on glass.

    This is mine fella, works a treat. Will have a custom made flue this week and couldn't find one that would fit. Good air flow in the van and you'll be fine. Mines on the last point before hose reel.
