I'm sure you can find adapters at the hardware store to allow you using the interior shower, outside. That is my plan.

That looks adequate for washing dishes or your feet but a shower adapter is needed for showering, unless there are 2 of you and one can hose the other off......

I like the quick connect Jerry because you don't have to store the hose inside the compartment. I'd just pick up a plastic shower head with a shut off valve, like this one. Around 8 bucks.

We love the exterior shower for hosing off wiener dogs (i.e., dachshunds) and washing dishes. We squirt the dish rinse water into a separate dish tub and then dump it into the black tank via the toilet so as to not leave a mess. Works for us. Truth be told the escape sink is more of a "bar" sink than a true kitchen sink like you have at home.

That's exactly what it is and why some of us have had the sink changed to something bigger and deeper during the build. Love my prep sink!

Not sure it will be possible to easily adapt the specific shower head threading to a garden hose fitting. I explored this briefly when trying to tackle this issue with the Phoenix quick connect spray port I added to a Scamp. Same unit now used by Escape. Why not just use a hose sprayer with multiple settings that includes shower? It would thread right on to the supplied hose.

I think mainly for ease of use. The plastic shower head is lighter, and you can shut off the flow with the button. With the garden sprayer, you'd have to hold down the spring handle while you showered.

You have to do that one hand thing with either model, unless you mount something on the trailer.

Try using your shower head from the bathroom on the hose first; if it fits the thread is standard 1/2 inch pipe thread. We rarely use our bath shower, so it's packed away in a zip lock baggie. I just screwed a 1/2 inch pvc pipe cap on the shower fitting at the bath faucet to prevent accidental geysering when the knob gets bumped.
