Does Canada have a town called Despair? We were in Hope. The scenery from Harrison Hot Springs north and east went from great to better and better.

Jim,
I had Reace install an outside shower on the door side, approximately where the stove is with the intention of using it to do dishes or to rinse off sandy feet after a trip to the beach. It works well for that purpose, and would be low enough to wash the dog. I also used it once to take a shower (had a bathing suit on). The hose is coiled, and I store it in the optional storage compartment that opens into the space under the dinette seat on the passenger side. The nozzle, however, is a joke. I trashed mine and bought a shower head that could be used on dishes or bodies, furry or otherwise.

You do know that if you do your dishes more often, they don't get furry, eh?

Here is a photo of the hose. We replaced the nozzle with a good garden nozzle. Since the end is standard hose fitting, we can attach it to anything using that. I have put it through the bathroom window and connected it to a wand to clean out the black tank. I was wondering, too, if we would use it, but the hose connection has proved very valuable.

To use it, just push the end into the connection and it connects. To release, grab the ring around the end and push it in.

Why would I want to do that. Fur keeps things warm, including food.

Slick design
I see what you mean - it doesn't look like there is a flow volume control. I hope the hose is replaceable, without replacing the control.

Always interesting seeing the lists, two couples very similar.

There is a toilet valve cut-off that is only a few dollars that you both might want. Allows you to use the trailer if something happens to cause the toilet to leak, so that all of your water does not go down the shower drain.

There is an LED indicator light that shows the water heater propane is on.

Seems like we're very close on the options. We've probably reading the same threads. Hope we don't get our eggs mixed up. Wolf
