Sink in bathroom

This may be a very stupid questions (and I've read many of the threads on pros/cons of deleting the bathroom sink), but doesn't having the sink put unnecessary water into the grey water tank every time you have a shower?

Hi: blhvet... It doesn't matter... sink drain or floor drain... all water flow from the shower head goes into the grey tank. We use a dish pan in the kitchen sink when doing dishes so it can be emptied outside if permitted. Alf

I have asked many questions on our Forum, wondering as I typed, wether or not they were silly or stupid. So if I understand you correctly you are imagining the little bathroom and using the shower with the shower head up against the wall. The shower head is on a hose which comes off the wall when you shower. You turnoff the water going into the sink to get the water to flow up to the shower head. So no water goes into the sink when using the shower.

By the way, it is a bit tightrope shower in there. Feels like an airplane bathroom. FYI I would never delete the sink due to the question Jubal asks.

Golly, I wash my hands at the kitchen sink all the time.

Without being too graphic, I think it would depend on how many people are using the trailer. For a single user the issue may not be important. For for a trailer with multiple users I'd like to think that when I use the kitchen tap to wash lettuce that my hand goes onto a tap handle that wasn't used by someone who'd just used the bathroom.

I agree with Ron. I also think I will keep toothbrushes and toothpaste in the bathroom just like at home. I don't like finding saliva and toothpaste in the kitchen sink at home and I think the same will go for a trailer.

Actually, keeping your toothbrush in the bathroom is a poor idea. There is quite a lot of bacteria floating around. Surprisingly, the kitchen sink is even worse.
I keep a container of Wet Ones in the bathroom sink.
I've also thrown out the suction cup toothbrush holder which I've twice had to pick up off the floor along with the toothbrushes.

Let's see. Backpacking, woods, no running water. Tent camping, outhouse, no running water. Camping, pit toilet, no running water. And now not just one but two sinks are required for camping (RVing would be the better term in this case). To each his own, I say! I'd rather focus on having fun while in the great outdoors.
