Outside Shower Question

Does anybody besides myself view the outside shower as the most worthless option ever put on an RV?

If you disagree, please share what you have used yours for.

My outdoor shower is a great location to store a replacement showerhead hose when the one inside fails. That is all I use it for.

We have a 2004. The zip tie has never been removed from the shower hose.

However the facet is handy to relieve water pressure when unhooking from city water.

I actually miss my outside shower, I've got the outdoor faucet so I'm thinking of building one I can break down and store.

Rinsing off after swimming, washing the dog, bathing al fresco when the situation allows.

They're useful, just need to be creative.

I used my outside shower once this year. We had a cookout with lobsters at our campsite and the pot we cooked the lobsters in was too big to fit under the sink faucet.

We love our outside shower , its good for doing dish's outside instead of dragging all the dirty stuff inside , cleaning fish , rinse off the dog-even giving our bicycles a quick wash . We didn't order it but it came with our trailer and we have found many uses for it.......but we have never taken a shower outside

Mine has about a 2' hose. Never figured a use for it yet?? What am I going to shower with it if I'm more than 3' tall? Maybe a dog? Don't have one. I'm with OP.

Maybe rig it up as a black tank flush system someday ?

All the above and can help extend stays at sites without sewer.

We use ours to fill the fresh water tank when we're at a site without water hookups using the winterization hose and the shower hose attached to the fresh water fill port. Just turn on the water pump no heavy lifting. Work smarter, not harder!

We also use it to rinse off the dog and our feet if really dirty before going into the rig and it was great for rinsing off the boys' toy trucks, etc. when they brought that kind of stuff.

We use it to rinse our feet and beach toys when coming back from the beach. Nothing worse than sand in the camper!
