You're my hero..

I've been debating this one for a while, but wasn't sure the easiest path to take. Where's the best place to pickup aluminum like that? Because I'm sure most places could have something small like that as scrap.

No doubt. I would love to add hot water to my little pop-up camper so I could take a hot/warm shower.

Not sure where would be the best place to pick it up...I was fortunate to get a piece from a neighbor that just had it laying around. Not even sure why he had it, but he was nice enough to give it to me!

Side halo blinker. Basically a two wire LED blinker with a cheap knock off trail rated badge stuck over the top.

The main idea was borrowed from here:

http://www.helton.com.au/

Most of it is outlined there and they show the exchanger mounted in different vehicles. I made my own heat exchanger from 3" copper pipe and copper refrigerator coil much like the heaton exchanger. If you build your own they show the internals of their exchanger to give you an idea how it's done. It is mounted and plumbed into your coolant lines going to the heater core. It is efficient enough that there is usually no need for a second pass through to get water at shower temp. The pump is a small Flojet 1.1 gpm RV pump with a shutoff of 35psi that feeds into the exchanger. Pump was around $35. Use simple garden hose for gazinta and gozoutta water lines and find a place to mount everything.

First, I made it run 3.5 years ago


Then I made a no fuss doorless mirror:



And I also I "made" a Water to Interior Preventor


My most recent mod is a Kill Switch. I tapped the clutch switch with a radio shack panel switch hidden in an easy to access yet impossible to see location

Yeah, I felt good about my side mirrors that I "made" until I saw some of the other stuff people make. I wish I had skills, too.

I made my own CB mount.. These pics are right after I built it, but have since covered the insulation and painted it all with the Duplicolor Black bedliner, so all the metal and covering is black.
