Boy, I didn't expect a 13 footer shower to be popular.
Yes I will post as soon as I return from a Scamp
trip coming up in a few days. My fabulous wife and I just "camped" out three days last week at the curb as the house was tented for fumigation and we have been trying to recover as she wanted practically everything boxed and out in the back yard. A lot of work and I still can't find my stuff to just get to work.
Have extra parts and will photograph them as well. Have used this set up and am very satisfied.
One change I will make is in adding a 12v relay to operate the sump pump as running heavier power lines to the switch within the shower control area is awkward. New setup will have very light
gauge control wires activate the relay.
The shower head and pump is the Coleman kit that has a D battery
box, immersible pump and shower head. This works very well and all the wiring and shower tubing are attached to the overhead frame that stores under the bed as well as the shower pan and curtain. The D battery
box sits in the overhead cabinet.
The frame consists of two chrome 1 inch dia shower curtain tubes from Ace Hardware. They run from the ends of the closet to the over the sink/stove cabinets. The are attached by inserting into 1 inch PVC slip plugs that amazingly have the correct ID for the chrome tubes. TThe pair on the closet are round, the other set on the cabinet are cut so that the tubes can be inserted sideways. The one nearest the stove need to rotate as it will interfere with that overhead door. After the showe is put away, that cap is rotated for door clearance.
The cloth type curtain is soft and easy to put away. Got two at Bed Bath & Beyond. They were cut and sewn to exact length. They hang on a 30 in dia hula hoop with chrome plated shower curtain wire spring hoops. the hoola hoop is temporarily secured to the wo chrome bars with velcro strips.
By marking where the bars need to insert through the curtain, it becomes a quick operation. It all comes together in a few minutes.
The pan is an aluminum water heater pan with a height of two inches, from Home Depot. It comes with one large side drain hole that Iplugged. I drillesd second hole and installed an electrical
PVC elbow not like most elbows, don't know the name. It is cut so the it has a 1/16 inch gap between it and the pan floor. This makes it behave like wet vac and it really empties out the pan quickly and leave almost no water behind. You will need a Shure flow strainer as you will be surprised at what we shed when we bath.
The water for showering. I use 3 gal alumimun pot that sits empty on the stove. A copper line leading from under the sink, feeds off the demand pump line and has a brass shut off ball valve. The line is bent so that it saddles the pot and water is released at the bottom of the pot and to the side. From here I can add more water by sticking my hand out the curtain. I find that one full pot is way more than enough for me and/or my wife unless she washes all that beatiful hair she has.
The stove heats the water to the right temperature in a few minutes as well as make the room warm for showering.
My setup's goals of not having to deal with bucket filling nor messy shower pan drainage were met. I can shower with no help from another as all the controls are within the shower. When done I prefer to hang the curtain with hula hoop attached, outside for drying. If not that night then in the morning. The whole thing stores under the full time bed.
Will be happy to post when we return, just wanted to give you additional details. Please keep in mind that there are a dozen ways to accomplish the same thing, I would welcome ideas from others to improve my set up.
Hope this give you a better idea. I like pictures as they show a lot of information and will take them. Can someone tell e how to post them here. In the five years or so of reading and posting, I haven't posted picture.
