Lessons Learned

I'm new at this And I completely admit I do not have all the answers I thought I had drained everything for winterization last year and found out the hard way on this trip. I apparently should have removed the shower head nozzle and removed the water filter housing as well. I found out the hard way rtf hat I didn't. Since we're at our campsite I had to be resourceful. You can get a replacement showerhead at family dollar for about $500. I had to piece together a bypass for the water system. Cost about $11.00. Aside from all that, we are still having a blast, my boy even wants to have a campsite day and just chill

Desertwilde, what exactly happened to the shower nozzle? I didnt remove mine with no damage. Do you mean you didnt winterize that line? Glad to hear you still had a great time on your trip despite the need for on site repairs!

The handle on the shower nozzle cracked in about 3 different directions, when we turned the shower on, water went everywhere - I have learned my lesson and certainly will not do that again!

Yeah, if you live somewhere where it actually freezes, then merely emptying the lines is not enough, they need to be blown out and preferably antifreezed.
