Ruthe, that would be correct. And that will be our way of camping most of the time, with water available at the site. I forget that others don't always camp like us sometimes...even though they should

What I could have done for dirty feet is just keep a bucket of water by the trailer door with a chair.

So if I took the Escape to Chilliwack, could they retrofit an outdoor shower?

Ruth, If you have Escape install the Shower and choose to have it installed on the passenger side make sure to have them install it behind the stove if possible. Mine was installed where the dishes are stored under the sink and it takes up some of that space. It would take up no space if it were below the stove.

This was washday in the Tetons. We were super meticulous because of the bears. All our wash and rinse water was put down the service sink, which thankfully was located pretty close to our campsite. We had a fire going pretty constantly when we were in camp, so scraps of food got burnt.

Ruthe, if you were going to The Chilliwack area for some other reason, they could install the outside shower. I wouldn't, however, drive all the way from NJ to BC to have an outside shower installed. Any reputable RV dealer's service people could easily install one. It involves cutting a hol in the wall and installing the unit and putting Ts in a hot and cold water line (should be in somewhat close proximity to the kirchen sink lines). Tell them to use Pex for the plumbing (almost all RV manufacturers including ETI use Pex) and tell them to seal around the shower houding with Proflex, NOT silicon.

They're already in the Tetons and BC is a great place to go with a trailer, so....call ETI?

That being the case and if time is not an issue, I would agree. I would also have a toilet shut iff valve installed at the same time if it wasn't done during the build.

We're actually not in the Tetons now -- but next summer we'll be back out west -- so maybe we'd do it then. I'm nervous about letting anyone cut anything. So far we've had so little trouble with the trailer -- I don't want to invite problems.

What 's the preference for Escapees ?
Ours is on the driver's side in the standard place. We can fill buckets for cleaning. We would never use it for the sewer hose. Most dump sites have such hoses. The shower hose has lots of possible uses as people have mentioned.

If someone intends to have an RV place add one, might just check with Escape that nothing needs to be reinforced and ask exactly where one needs to be installed.

I intend to use mine on curb side as a dishwashing/feet clean area. The sewer hose gets cleaned at the dump. With the new style there is no gaping hole in your shell to allow cold air. It is a sealed unit and covered on the inside.
