We always use ours when we are camping near a beach. Kids can hose off the sand there.

I find it handy for washing too when we have a campsite with water, but no sewer.

I won't be without one...has to be on the back or left side of camper as we use ours several times a day! We only cook with cast iron over a wood fire so we use the shower to clean the cast iron and also just for general hand washings when doing things outside. We run RC's a fair amount while camping so I am usually getting dirty hands with maintaining them.

On a side note, make sure the hot and cold valves are always turned off after using and not some other type of on/off valve modification or there could be a lack of water issue while using other taps in the RV while on pump.
This could also happen with the indoor shower.

We use our external washer at some point every trip. If were at the beach it's for washing sand, if the dog finds roadkill to roll in, or just for washing up. I have a couple of plastic milk crates I keep in my passthrough storage to hold various items and they get turned over for the littleones to stand on and then one of those plastic mesh mats to let the water go through.

I guess i could live without it, but then I'd have to hood up a hose to the city water and it would always be cold.

FWIW, we have one in our boat and when its cold water crabbing season there is nothing like a little warm water to warm up cold hands after pulling pots.

Good point, but I would say as opposed to a "lack of water" issue, you'd have a hot water mixing issue. If you leave the hot and cold valves on and turn off an auxiliary valve (like the one on the shower head), the hot and cold water mix throughout the system.

Secondary use when parked near the barn: Spraying air temperature water at a near overheated tractor's radiator. Brings things down to reasonable fairly quickly.
