Primus Hot Shower | Why we no longer have it

A Journal of our Travels

A Journal of our Travels

Primus Australia manufactured the AGA Fully Approved LP Gas Hot Camp Shower System.

Our experience was not good. We ended up replacing the Primus Shower with the Coleman Hot Water on Demand system.

Problems we experienced with the Primus include difficulty in starting, slow to get hot water flowing (need to hold the button down for 30-60 seconds), and cuts out regularly requiring a restart.
