Recreational vehicles and rural homes often share a common problem, in the lack of a stable hot water supply. Unstable electricity infrastructure, the absence of a stable gas line, and oversized, bulky tanks required by older water heaters can all contribute to this problem. However, modern technology has now come to the rescue.
The solution comes in the form of a propane-powered water heater that requires almost no setup and is portable enough to carry under your arm. This Camp Chef unit has been tested and analyzed by us, and we’ve provided you with a complete Camp Chef Triton 10L review.
Camp Chef Triton 10L Specifications
The Triton is a conveniently portable, propane-powered, tankless, outdoor water heating unit. Its industrial-strength design gives it the added stability it needs since it spends a fair amount of time outside. As mentioned in Camp Chef Triton 10L user manual, it functions with almost any water source, even a garden hose, which makes it a great addition to outdoor living equipment.
Inside the unit, there is a 2.6 GPM pump, along with a burner. The burning module inside requires no pilot light, but instead is powered by 2 D-sized batteries, and automatically ignites when water is turned on. This aspect gives it a wide range of portability options. On the bottom side of the unit, we can find three connectors: a water inlet and outlet, and one for the propane supply. This model even comes with a regulator hose for bulk propane tanks.
An 8-foot long water hose and a showerhead are also included with the heater. We tried them out on each of the 4 settings: clean flow, mist, shower, and jet. It proved to be a solid piece of equipment, and it fits well with the whole portable feel of the unit.
The water flow and the burner to raise the temperature are controlled with two separate knobs, so you can adjust the heater to your needs.

What to Expect from Camp Chef Triton 10L?
What is there to expect from this portable shower? It is exceptionally practical and effective. It would be an understatement to describe the luxury of bringing your own source of hot water on a camping trip or a weekend retreat as merely satisfying. Additionally, with proper maintenance of the unit`s pipes (details on maintenance and more available in our gas and propane tankless water heater guide), you will be able to use this model for a long time. The downside is that it is designed to be used by only one person at a time.
- One of the most portable propane tankless units on the market
- Comes with additional gear (hose and a showerhead)
- No pilot light is needed, the heater uses 2 D batteries for ignition

This amazing propane tankless water heating unit surprised us with its innovative design, and its expansive mobility and portability. While this model is not as powerful as the other propane-powered heaters, it surely is the most portable. Do not be fooled by its size; it will deliver an uninterrupted flow of hot water for the person using it.
This unit can be carried in the trunk of most vehicles or permanently mounted on a wall of your lodge or lake house. It is a worthy investment for people who spend a fair amount of time on long-distance road trips or in the wilderness.
