The outside shower head on my 24RKS was horrible. It had a lever on the back to stop the flow. I took the head apart and removed the internal valve (small white piece). It doubled the output, but still was not the greatest.

Personally have never used the outside shower and consider it a waste and something I have to remember to winterize even if I don't use it. Washing the dog maybe but never had to use it that way. I remove the hose at the H/C fixture and stow it away. The idea of maybe turning it into an aux hose connection is a good one. Looks like for a few bucks you can rig something up to get hot and cold water thru a water hose for whatever and allow you to get far enough away from the TT so as not to make a muddy mess next to the unit. Hmm! Wash the truck with warm water?? Not allowed in most CGs but a quick rinse???

In the end not worth spending a bunch of $$'s on.

The backflow valve is to prevent water from standing in the hose. You just have to remember to let it drain before you stow it.

Now I understand, and now I see the possibilities. Ball valve and quick connect make for fast switchouts of extra hose, spray heads, etc. Uses [other than the dogs] rinse salt spray off of fishing gear, sand off of bikes, etc. Could do all of that with a spare hose attached to the neighbors water bib [double in many CGs] but now with warm water.

I also like to use the hot water to help clean grills, etc.
