Seriously clean, environmentally aware and healthy RV trips need seriously reliable Duoetto hot water for Pro Camp Solutions
Aus J’s Duoetto MK2 12V/240V water heater (shown installed, right) is ruggedly designed to withstand harsh Australian climates, and is easily installed into a range of custom builds, such as the expedition vehicles custom fitted by Pro Camp Solutions (an example shown left)
Australian expedition vehicle custom builders, Pro Camp Solutions, specialise in creating 4WDs and vehicles geared up for serious trips – including harsh conditions and locations without power.
Pro Camp is also strongly environmentally and health-aware, equipping its vehicles with a source of hot water that does not pollute pristine environments, gives plenty of personal hot water to guard against covid and other nasties, and doesn’t rely on burning to produce heat and purify drinking water in bushfire-prone environments.
For reliable hot water, even in the middle of the Aussie Outback, or a remote coastal location, Pro Camp Solutions uses the rugged Australian-designed Duoetto MK2 10L dual 12V/240V water heater manufactured by Aus J Hot Water Solutions.
“They are a simple, but highly effective product. To install them is an absolute breeze, and I honestly cannot fault them. The value-for-money factor makes them highly appealing as well,” he says.
The Duoetto MK2 – which offers selectable temperatures between 30-75 deg C on 240V – is ideally suited to custom RV, van, campervan, trailer and boating builds, and Aus J has sold more than 30,000 water heaters worldwide, including the US, North America, Africa, UK, the Middle East and throughout the Asia-Pacific and Australasian regions.
“Hot water is a comfort we all want when out on the road, or on the water. It can make the difference between a family trip that you barely survive, and one that’s thoroughly enjoyable, with warm showers and hot water to clean the dishes or for other hygiene purposes,” he said.
“Plus, they offer pollution-free performance, so there’s no risk of carbon monoxide or other fossil fuels entering a vehicle that’s being used as a living space.”
Keeping clean and dirty water separate
Mr Nel explains that for this, he uses the Duoetto MK2 in conjunction with an Egon water system called Water Hub. The system effectively works on the same principal using a two pump system with valves.
“This set-up allows us to draw water from two sources, one that is onboard via a tank, which is regarded as clean and the other that is external via jerry can or bucket, which is regarded as tainted.”
“The Duoetto works brilliantly in this set-up. And in cases where a large water system like this doesn’t fit, we build a deconstructed version that essentially performs the same function,” he said.
Service drives success
“The way Jay conducts himself and his business is the type of company that you want to work with as a partner supplier. To treat a company like ours the same as any other big operation says a lot about a person and their ethics. He clearly has a passion for his business and products and that instils confidence in us that when we sell a solution involving a Duoetto to a customer – it’s totally backed in the field.”
“One of the ways we conduct our business is that we are not brand biased. We have preferred brands and products that we trust, but at the end of the day, whatever suits the customer’s needs best is what we’ll put in the vehicle. The fact that we’ve only ever used Aus J for water heaters says a lot about the products and the business,” he said.
