Staff Caravan Hot Water System

Postby Big Luke » Thu Dec 12, 2019 10:43 am


I am need of some advice for a hot water system (just hot water for showers not central heating)in a staff caravan.
we have recently purchased a new static caravan for our staff, There going to be four people staying in it over the summer period.

The issue being we don't have a large electrical output so cant put in a electric boiler which is about 8kw to 12kw or power shower.
Also the boss is fully against a gas system (understandable with 4 x 18yr olds in the van)

Is it possible to put in a hot water cylinder with a shower pump and run it on the 3kw immersion element on a timer so it heats in the day or overnight.

the van currently has a storage water heater but only store 50l so runs out in 5mins and takes a fair while to re heat up.

sorry for the waffling. and help or different ideas would be greatly appreciated.
