I completed my first (and likely easiest) renovation today, which was simply creating a shower head where my 76 Sovereign
of the Road had none.
We've got two little ones and grandma along for the ride, who'll be the primary users of the shower as everyone else is a-ok with using campground facilities. So my requirements were simple, make it easy to use and versatile enough to fill the tub, spray soap off of young ones who enjoy a good hose battle, and allow grandma to get a real shower.
What I used:
1. A low flow showerhead that puts out 1.5 gpm
2. A simple on/off toggle that connects to the shower head so that the water can remain on "warm" but not flowing. The idea here is that the shower head and this on/off switch can be used for the type of shower where you turn the water on, get wet, turn the water off, soap up, turn it back on and rinse off. But with this toggle, we hopefully avoid that rinsing phase being a burst of cold water.
3. A 5' 3/4" washing machine hose. Why? Because it was really shiny and had nice blue stripes which will match our eventual renovation colors. Two adapters at each end to convert from the 3/4" pipe to the smaller width pipes in the AS and shower head.
4. A 6" angled piece of pipe to serve as the handle on the shower head.
Final results in photos below. Pretty darn pleased with this first endeavor!
