I use it to clean my Grill and some of my dishes if they are too large to fit in the sink
- a small table works great for this as it keeps everything out of the dirt.

and I rinse my 5 year old off after she has been to the beach or water cause she seems to get dirty

I have washed our dog with it more than anything, but have also used to wash sand off of feet from the beach/lake.

Usually when no one is around(real early in the mornig) refrain from singing as it will only draw attention, hope no one sees me in the buff, try not to run back into trailer as one might slip and fall which could be quite embarrassing.

Same here. All the years and different campers we have had I don't remember ever using it. I think if we ever would it would be only to rinse something really muddy or sandy off.

DW told me I couldn't use the outside shower. She doesn't want any of the neighboring campers laughing at my nude body.

I use mine to clean the dog, but I always use it to release water pressure in the water lines before I unhook water hose from campground. Saves getting spritzed in the face.
