Your thoughts on these ideas on whether they suck or do you have some other thoughts as a simple solution until I can winterize.
If you think the Very Thin plastic Box in the lower left in the Pic. will stop Freezing the OS/Shower (Go for it)! This Area is a (9 x5) Non insulated (HOLE) in the side of your RV! To prevent freezing (Remove hose,open H/C valves,go inside and cut supply lines to OS/shower,install shutoff valves) Now you will NOT have Water (IN or Going) to the OS/Shower! Any other way (Will/Could) end with (I Didn't think it would Get (That Cold)! Youroo!!

When we camp we usually bring along a thermostat & remote sensor. While traveling, if we've turned the fridge off, the thermostats in the cab with us and the remote sensors in the fridge monitoring the temperature. While camped the thermostat goes inside the TT and the remote sensor outside in a shaded area.

Anyhow if you have a similar thermostat with a remote sensor you could place the sensor in the outside shower to keep an eye on it's health.

I use the compartment to store the Dish cables.

LOVE this idea. I doubt Sneak and I will ever use the outdoor shower either. Perfect for storing the satellite cables! Leave it to OC to think of another use for that small storage area.

If age is a state of mind, and I've lost my mind, I'm AGELESS, right?
Give me 40 acres and I'll turn this rig around:

I had the same problem so I removed and plugged the lines feeding the faucet then I removed the faucet and shower head. Stuffed insulation in the compartment and closed the door.
