Amount of usage on your exterior shower box?

What all do you use your auxiliary shower for other than dirty children / pets?

Our last TT had an exterior shower. The new one doesn't.

I am in the "camp" of thought that we do in fact need one and want to install one. It can be done rather inexpensively about $60 for all parts.

My wife on the other hand thinks that I should not cut a hole in the side of the TT and leave it alone.

I have only used mine one time when my daughter buried herself in sand at the beach, but the water was too cold for her to get into the ocean to clean off. Other than that, I wish it was just more outside storage or something I would actually use. Mine is on the side next to my dump, so we never use it when we have hookups.

We use ours to Wash off the Dog when she gets into something, Fill up Dish Wash Pan and or to Rinse dishes. We don't care to use the sink in the trailer for some reason?? It's also handy for those times when you come back from the beach and your feet are full of sand.
And more importantly, if It's stinking hot outside, maybe a quick cool water rinse over the head. Otherwise we take our showers in the CG Facilities which are usually pretty well maintained.

mine is located between 2 slideouts, which at the time I thought was great! However, my power cord, and my sewer hose both run through the same area. So, if I don't get electrocuted, I end up stepping on, and/or tripping over the sewer hose! Only used a few times because of this. I believe that rv manufacturers should take their units out camping for at least a week to see if their design is correct. Apparently, they don't.

Never use it. Unless I want to shock the neighbors.

My last tt had the shower on the rear of the coach. The Jay Flights with an exterior shower have the on the drivers side.

I have plumbing to tap into at either location, not sure which area I will l choose if I do install. Although I am leaning toward the rear.

ours is on the back corner near our sewer hose so i use it to give the hose a quick rinse when packing up. but boy is it a PITA to wrap back up and fit into the tiny space.
