Are you camping at a campground that has showers?? We always use the campground showers. Even if it is 50 cents, most of the time, you get a better shower.

I have a suburban hot water heater and I thought it is either run on electric OR propane not both at the same time, the owners manual did not cover that. Anyway 5 minute shower works for me and if you have a full hookup take more than one . Chuck in Va
Yes, you can use elec and lp together. Together, they can heat water faster. But only do it while in the shower. After shower, save your propane.

I can't remember the last time I loaded a bag of toiletries, packed a change of undies and clothes, and clogged across a cg in shower shoes to use the public shower. RV is just too convenient. But my father in law does that every time. (I think he enjoys the time away from mother in law.) Lol.

I agree, although I am new to camping I selected a unit with a nice shower and other amenities that makes life easier. My Windjammer will be my waterfront condo at times and other times it will be my mountain chalet. RV's have come a long way since my tent camping days in the 70's. My showers may be short but I can live with that, after all you have to suffer a little.That's why most TT's have big screen TV, microwave, internet, ac/heat, and cable need I say more. To each his own. its still a get away meant to be stress free.

I like my own bed and my own shower stall which I know is clean. Never have I seen a cg shower as clean as my own. You never know who has used the cg showers as a urinal. I don't care if they do have endless hot water.

We mostly use cg showers, but we all own water shoes, flip flop or something so we dont step on the floor, bare footed. Just a habit we picked up from the popup days. Sometimes, we give baby girl a shower in the camper.

Not just referring to the floors, the benches & walls are included in my reference to being used as urinals.

OC, are you saying that you don't pee in the shower? Both me and my girl admit to doing it. Some people do it, others don't. It all washes down.

But, we do wear shower/water shoes in the cg shower.

We always try and get close to the shower if we can. We also use the cg facilities as much ad possible. Me being big and tall, my bathroom in the Roo is not made for me.
