outside shower - HELP!

I forgot to drain the outside shower and it froze/ broke the mixing fixture. It is a 4" OC T- fitting, black and white plastic. Anyone know who the manufacturer is on this unit (2012 Escape)? Still current @ Escape? Or where I might go to find this part. My local RV store, plumbing specialty and ol' time hardware store all didn't know. I figure I'd ask here before bugging ET.

TIA
steve

I'm pretty sure it's a Phoenix. Do you have a photo?

Just an idea, I'd check with Factory RV Surplus in Elkhart Indiana. They have a lot of inventory. The have a pretty good website and their counter people are knowledgeable.

Ahh, that drafting scale takes me back to the pre-Autocad days!

Good luck with the fix; adding draining the shower to my winter prep worry list.

I regularly use them, especially when doing initial layouts for reno projects. Doing them to scale insures no errors.

Wondering if I need to add the shower to my build sheet that I turn in next week. What do folks use them for. NOt sure i would need one, hate to spend the additional money if I don't but would hate not to get one if I might.

An outdoor shower is great for rinsing off dirty pets, muddy shoes, and beach sand. I also prefer an outdoor shower when boondocking if it is warm out. Just feels more like camping and is so refreshing. I had one on my Aliner, and have one on our 19' Escape.

You can never miss what you've never had.

The big thing with an outside shower is the hot water. IF all you're looking to do is wash off your feet, dogs paws or rise sandy shoes, maybe a splitter for the hose bib would satisfy your needs? Two Way Hose Splitter
