Good morning, Carl and everyone else. Yes, I used the shower several times and my husband did twice. It was fine, although the last campground had low water pressure and that made it more of a trickle than a shower. My husband, Lee suggested wrapping the shower curtain in front of the toilet to keep the toilet dryer and also to prevent any water from flowing down into the cassette (I am not sure that can happen, but it did seem to me that the cassette had more water in it than expected when I emptied yesterday after returning home). I found we had plenty of hot water on the two occasions when we both took showers in the morning and, of course, plenty when I was the only one. I took a "navy" shower of wetting, cutting off the flow, soaping, and then rinsing. Worked fine. I am personally more fond of using our own shower rather than a CG shower although the bathhouse at Mama Gertie's and the Chatanooga one were completely clean (maybe cleaner than my own at home!). We did use the CG toilet facilities whenever possible (if clean) to preserve the cassette for those midnight tinkles.

Snoozy

Congrats on your Lil Snoozy purchase-happy camping.
We finally got to see one-Carl had his Snoozy at the Ark.rally.
We were really impressed with the quality and beauty of it.
Carl has done a nice job of decorating his and he has added some useful mods to it.
We have been looking for one and may be owners of one next spring.
For now our Campster works for us but when we get to travel more we will want a Snoozy.
Mrs. C.

My husband took 2 sheets of drawing paper over the window with tape for the rest of the trip. But that is only a temporary solution. I saw on another thread that Carl (?) put up a car shade (with velcro to hold it); so that is what I will look at first. Any other suggestions?

Congratulations on your Snoozy. We had the same door window issue. Some aluminum rods from an old TV antenna, a couple screws, and a clever wife with some scrap rip stop fabric solved our problem. It's cheap, light, and water proof. Raz

I tried the rods, but the way the Snoozy is there is almost no room
between the screen door and the outside door. When not using the
screen door, it is attached to the main door. I think that's why every
one I know have used velcro. Looks like your setup might be doable.

Step and bumper

Here is a picture of the step and bumper Alan and Richard of Lil Snoozy built for us. The step and bumper were fabricated in Alan's facility next door and 4 guys came over to install it. Some creative corrections were developed on the spot. We really like it. The step is folded up and locked when traveling.

I hope the attachment I just tried to do comes along on this post. We will see.

I really like your step.
Got any pics with it folded up.
At first I thought may have been attached
by a 2" welded to the bumper.
