outside shower cutoffs

New project, no longer winterize the outside shower as I swapped out the feed lines with ones with cut off valves. Parts and pics are posted in my water works album.. Spent more time picking out the parts at Lowes then doing the actual work. It helped to loosen the shower line back caps for install. Also used the factory washers on the valves connected to the sink lines. The lines to the shower came with a seal.

Now you got something else I think I should do. Sounds like a good idea. We seldom use our outside shower too.

Thanks for the idea!

Wow! Thanks! Your solution is much better that my cap the supply line approach. I’m off to Lowe’s

Sounds like what I'm planning to do.
Where would I find your water works album?

It takes me an extra 30 seconds to winterize the outside shower. Not worth the time and effort to install valves IMO.

Thanks! Hoglou

Installed the bypass valve for my outside shower. Appreciate you sharing. Hoping to head out next week for some winter camping and won’t need to worry about the shower.

pic quality

Nice... But be sure to pressure up with shore water pressure for proper leak inspection before checking this off your list. Your work pics are far superior to mine, I might harvest them with your premission.

I was often concerned about the outside shower freezing when we winter camp while using water, mostly when we were laying in bed about 3 am and realizing just how dang cold it was outside, well no more....

Yes, got them pretty tight but will worry for a couple weeks about leaks once I get water in it, especially when hooked up to city water. Probably won’t see water till we head south, snow and single digit temps this weekend.

I froze the shower and had to replace it once already. Will probably stick a little insulation in the outside compartment just to keep the camper warmer.

Feel free to use the pictures as you wish.

Thanks again, way better than my original plan to just cap the water line then reconnect when I wanted to use the shower again.

Just an update. Last January we camped out west and temps got down to 4 degrees. Glad I isolated the shower as there is no way to keep it above freezing.
