This summer I purchased a 1973 Amerigo
FG-16 camper trailer..lol, and immediately loaded it up and took it on a 10 day vacation (along with my camping partner..my mother) to Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and the Gaspe`. We had an absolutely wonderful time, with very few problems. I did have to replace the propane
connections to the two tanks in NB, but fortunately was camped less than two miles from a camper repair place. Someone was watching over us I'm sure, that was just too lucky.
Now for my question..This camper has a small bathoom in the front, it has no water holding tank, it does have a "honey wagon" grey water tank that came with it. The water seems to come in only from the intake valve (Hose) directly to the sink..after investigating I found that there were two hoses fromt he sink faucet, one for the sink and one that goes under the floor and under the couch area, that has been cut, but did at one time go to the shower. It appears that the previous owner attached two pumps under the couch, and may have used the water tank as a feeder tank for the shower? I tried to see if I could make the water go through the hose from the sink directly to the shower..and could as long as the sink faucet was plugged..but not a large amount of water flowed through it. I'm wondering a couple of things. First of all, is there a type of faucet that will shut off the flow to the sink, but allow the water to go through to the shower? And also if there is a method of installing a water heater that will heat the water as it goes through to the shower?
Has anyone else had experience with this type of camper/shower set up?
I think that the camper was made with the shower, I don't think it was an add on by the previous owner.
Thanks for your consideration! Denise
