That stuff is already in my truck, Doug.

I was thinking of doing what you say, with the exterior shower tapped into the sink plumbing, but would like to adapt more of a sink type head, to get a steady stream, or a spray pattern, if wanted. Even build some kind of stand to hold it over the dish pan on the picnic table.

For us, using a separate portable tank is by far the best solution, as we use a lot of water outside, where we do most of our cooking and eating. It is handy to have a water container nearby, without having to go pump it through the trailer taps.

Though, into the future, it is still a thought of mine to provide some sort of exterior taps on the passenger side of the trailer, which would be real handy for this use. Hmmm.... maybe more onboard water might not be so bad then.
I agree. The other thing about an additional fresh water tank is weight. Much easier to have a portable container you can fill as necessary.

Think I now have the perfect solution: Drill through your trailer side wall .... right on through your refer ( hope to miss the coils ) .... install a fancy tap and turn your refer into a kegger-a- tor.

If you get the height just right you won't have to get up out of your zero gravity lounge chair .... and besides no worries about the left over used water.

We installed the "Donna sink" in our '21 and a 3rd party faucet. Photos and details are in the "Its Friday" forum, posts #1201 and #1205.

Have yet to see it in person

Oh man, I stuck my foot in my mouth. I commented earlier that I wouldn't install the prep sink if getting an oven. You did just that and it looks fabulous! Direct link to pictures: http://www.escapeforum.org/forums/f1...html#post81259

I like your sink / faucet installation .... now I have to decide if it will fit in my 17. I'm a bit confused though about the sink. Looking up the sink, a Franke BMSK802, the computer shows the sink has two holes where your faucet only requires one hole. Is it possible you were able to get same sink but with only one hole?

Thanks for the help everyone!
