I was just about to fall asleep and in a half asleep / half awake state inspiration struck.

My idea is to use a 7 gallon plastic tank and a small 110v pump to fill the tank from a stream/lake/water source. Bonus points for a mesh filter on the hose end that is pulling water in.

Then use a 1500w immersion heater to get the water to a comfortable temperature.

Then switch hoses/connections on the pump and pump warm water from the tank to a handheld shower head.

Voila.

Hot showers in the sticks. No propane or large gas heaters needed.

What am I missing? :)

Edit: Maybe a battery powered pump to reduce the risk of electrical shock?

I didn’t know about Glind and just looked them up. That heat exchanger approach is much more efficient but with a PowerBoost electricity makes it much easier.
Agreed. There are tons of options with the Powerboost. If you end up putting something together come back and show us, this is a great idea.
