"MUDDY spot", that's why I have the 5 gal. bucket and the strainer fits right on the edge. They sell a 3 gal. bucket if the 5 is too tall to store it. Always have either flowers or grass for dumping the water.

No usage here, either! It's just one more faucet to have to blow out when winterizing.

This is our second TT with an outdoor shower and we used it every time we go out. It is used for rinsing plates, dishes, washing hands, filling the coffee pot, etc. When we had our kids, now empty nesters, we rinsed them off all the time.

Never use it...in most campgrounds, and in many boondocking areas it is illegal to dump any food particles on the ground...plus, it draws bugs, animals and decaying matter can smell. In some parts of the country the grey water is considered black waste if it has food particles in it.

Agree with creating a muddy spot others have to deal with once we leave. It's amazing how one person dumping something on the ground effects others. And in a campground, when you have sites occupied daily what one does, does have an effect on everyone after you.

Mine is in the same compartment as the remote pulls for the tanks. I installed a soap dispenser and use it at the dump station to wash my hands after removing my gloves. That's the only use it gets, but I like it.

Never use ours either. Just have to remember it during winterizing. There is already a soap dispenser installed by ours. It is also by the pull handles for the waste water. Since we normally don't use our fresh water tank, it is basically useless to us.

I have the outdoor shower on the back of our TT and use it all the time. When we go to the beach, we shower at the rear of the TT in our bathing suits. I keep a big pump bottle of soap and have the interlocking grated plastic floor tiles to stand on. This way we keep almost all the beach sand out of the TT. Works great for us!
