They may be doing something differently now. We could not get to that area. As I recall, we would have to have removed about 16 screws. We never did. Just lifting up the stuff on the bed was a big deal.

Hi every body,

What do you think of the outside shower, we both will be using the inside shower, how often is it used, how many have that outside shower and never got to use it?

Thanks in advance for your replies,

Best

We use the outside show all the time; the inside shower, not so much.
But, we don't stay in RV parking lots very often. When we do, we use their showers.
Depending where you camp you might find issues with rinsing soapy water on to the ground.
I observed another Escape using the outside shower as a dish-washing station and, of course, they are used for rinsing sand from kids and dogs.

I take an all-weather mat from the back foot well of the RAV to stand on and keep dirt from splashing up.

We use ours all the time - doing dishes, showering off, washing the dog, our feet- filling up buckets. When you're not hooked up to sewer it saves on the grey tank. I know there are lots of others who don't use it at all. It again is "how" you would use it.

The older style o/s shower leaves a big hole in your side which can allow cold air as well as possible leak if not properly winterized. The newer style utilizes snap on connectors so there is no hole for air infiltration. In addition winterizing is simpler.

They must have moved the cord because it was in the far corner on ours and no way you could reach in and reach it. You would have to be crawling way in under the bed. Even then, I am not sure we could access it. Don't think we could. They have probably changed something on that. Not to mention getting rid of all of those screws.

I think he is partly referring to where the hose hooks up. It is different now. The door and whole thing is different.
