Outdoor Shower

As anyone ever put in shut off valves for the outside shower? Hooked up the water to the camper for the first time(new trailer) and the shower was leaking. Had to take off knobs and think I managed to adjust it right but started to think what if something gave out on the shower there would be no way to stop the water except to turn off main and then your stuck with no water to unit. Just wondering if the is anything out there I could install.

Do you still use your pump even if your hooked up to city water? I didn't have mine on when I was testing everything out.

Did you have a pressure regulator connected to the city water hose. The RV plumbing should not go over 40 - 50 psi and city water can be much higher. My house water pressure is around 80 psi. This can cause a leak or worse burst hose.

The outside shower is no different than any water outlet in the camper...none of them have isolating valves.

We just cap the two lines, we never use the outside shower. Did this on the 08 831RLSS and re-installed it when we traded it in. Someone got a brand new 4yr old shower assy.

We had shut off valves added to out outside shower. We do winter camping and did not want to de-winterize our outside shower.... don;t REALLY use the outside shower in the winter.... it's a little brisk :O
