Phoenix SAHCBTWRT Spray-Port Outlet Box.

I could see that working, as it would be easy to add a short spout with a quick connect fitting on the end, and have a longer hose to use when needed.

I think Phoenix was the name on the brochure you got last year.

Ours will be on the awning side. On the 19' it is directly above the wheels. I asked if it could be moved either fore or aft - no luck. We boondock mostly and often the other side of the trailer is not very accessible. I too would like a simple faucet but I think something could be done post build. Will use it to cut down traipsing through the trailer to wash hands and do dishes.

You mean the one that Lisa got, but I never read.

We have the outdoor shower (driver side) on our 19 and in the first 7 months have already used it several times for the same reasons mentioned earlier. Showers for us and the "grands" (now that was an experience introducing them to camping!) and washing dishes. Given the minimal cost and its utility we would do it again.

We have a 20 litre ( 5 gal. ) Reliant water container outside on the picnic table. It increases our water supply and is convenient ( no traipsing through the trailer ).
We have a large stainless food service container that we use for a sink at the picnic table. It sits perfectly on a single-burner butane stove and takes only a few minutes to heat the water for dishes.

It's sort of like camping.

I have seen pictures, and it does look good. Is there a way that the spout can be attached to use hands free, without having some kind of additional holder mounted to the trailer. What I am looking for, for the front side, is something that functions like a regular set of taps. Having the spout being able to pull out would be a bonus too.
If I had to use it as a shower, I would wear a bathing suit. I have two heads, one is a shower head the other a push button nozzle for dishes. They are on hose quick connect fittings. I also have a suction cup holder to hold the shower head, so it is not a permanent projection on the side of the trailer. Only attached if and when needed.
