The only way around it would be to thicken the wall and I would imagine that would entail a lot of work since it is right by the entrance.

Even if ETI was willing to thicken that wall and do the 90 degree elbow down thing for the plumbing, what a nightmare if you ever had to replace the faucet without also incorporating an easy way to access the mounting hardware on the back of the faucet.

That's what's already on there (or very, very similar style):

Two things:

1. I think the diverter knob is what you'll have trouble using. (It's small and a little bit persnickety.)

2. Once you've used your shower a time or two, you'll have a good idea of the cold/hot mix - so at least turning the faucet on will be somewhat easier - and as someone else said, you use the switch at the shower head to pause the flow while you are showering (minimize filling your gray water tank), so you don't constantly have to fiddle with the faucet handles

Okay, one more thing. I'm sorry your plan for the batroom faucet hasn't worked out; I get it. Once you get your trailer and use it a bit, maybe you can come up with a different faucet that will work more to your liking... And report back to us, of course.

Hang in there. I think you're still going to love love love your trailer!

We changed out our shower head to the white Oxygenics shower head and love it . The best part is we doubled the time to add water to fresh tank when we are boondocking with no hookups . We only have a 20 gallon fresh tank so we carry additional water . You will have at least 28 gallon , which still is very little . 2 people taking shower we get a good 4 days now . Showers being the most use . Really recommend Oxygenics . Pat

This is the Oxygenics shower head I'm considering for our 19
» R2-D2™ Shower Head Oxygenics

Hearing such good reports makes me want to do this changeout sooner.

Seriously Gregg whatever floats your boat . We also have 2 of Oxygenics at home in showers . Here in California if you don't watch your water usage you will pay . We also sometimes have to endure water rationing and or maybe pay fines . Pat
