Guessing the shower thing is just an old school feature that has survived for some unknown reason. Was kind of surprised when my 2014 W Hawk still had one. After all, the $1.50 Y adapter I use on the CG water spicket is all I need for a short hose to spray off the dogs or kids [now all nearing 40].
It probably has a different lock so no one will steal your shower head. Jayco knows that if they used the same lock that is on each and every storage compartment on every trailer they build, then anyone would be able to open that precious shower door as well.

Like most here, we use ours to shower down the dog and kids if they get muddy, sandy, etc.. I think it is one of those accessories that you don't need very often, but when you do it's great to have..

Use mine when I winterize each fall, other than that, have never used our outside showers since buying our first FW in 1993.

I agree with Tex 100%. Haven't used it yet, but probably will some day . . . for washing the dog or cleaning fish. Mine is on the back wall. Since my trailer has the pull-out bike rack/storage tray on the back, it would be a handy place for the dog to sit during a bath. I currently use the shower in the bathroom to bathe him. Outside shower & storage rack would probably be a lot easier on my back and knees, too.

We have used ours a few times to rinse sand off the kids. I tend to leave the shower door locked to keep the kids from playing with it and making a mud hole next to the camper.

We've used ours a few times for rinsing dishes, etc. and washing the dog. It's handy when you need it but I don't need it all that often.

Havent used ours at all but did turn it on to check it and didnt like the way it looked like it was seeping around the shower head outlet... hum wonder where that water would travel inside the wall ... i might use the lines i moved into the basement for my washer hookup then i would have hot and cold

Our neighbor in Acadia last summer was complaining that after their young children played at the beach, they made a mess in their camper bathroom while cleaning off. Sand everywhere. I aked, "do you have an outside shower?" They said "yes!! Ohhh why didn't we think of that a half hour ago!"

I used it to wash the dogs feet once. It leaked so badly I had to pull the shower head off and use the hose. Piece of crap and one more thing to winterize.
