Outdoor shower mods?

Has anyone modified their outdoor shower? Camping at the beach and realized the outdoor shower is really inadequate.

Next to no pressure. Thinking of maybe a coiled water hose with a garden nozzle? Any ideas?

I have one for inside. It's great. Just don't want to pay $55 for the outside shower. Trying to find a cost effective (cheaper ) alternative

Just had the Grand Kids at Cape Hatteras, outside shower wasn't much. The coil hose with a sprayer worked great, and cheaper than any mod. $7.00 at your local General Dollar.

Did you use some type of adapter?

This interests me as our outside shower gets used so seldom it gets covered in mildew/mold.

I would do a mod with a solution that negates the mold issues for that reason alone!

Yuck.

Tom, After trying the outdoor shower with and without the water pressure regulator it just was not working almost zero water. Using my Y adapter for the TT water supply I connected the coil hose to it and it worked great. The coil hose is really inexpensive. I use one for my black water flush. It seemed to work for us.

See my post from last month. I put in a hot/cold spray port from DW Inc. Uses a quick connect fitting and coiled hose. Works great, and has good pressure too!

Cut some holes in my camper this weekend

Charles...I have a y connector and a coiled hose for the black tank. I'd like to use the shower so we can have hot water when we want

Mike.... I already have an outdoor shower so cutting a hole to add that would not be my first choice. However, could the "faucet" part be used in my existing compartment?

If the holes are the same distance apart, then you could definitely use just the faucet part. I'm not sure if they sell just that though, worth a call maybe?
I could measure the spacing in the morning if you're interested.
