Re: The Yeti (My first Post as a SMB owner)

I have been playing with the idea of an inside shower. One reason is the wife and another is for times when outside is not possible. This is what I came up with:


The head attaches to a bracket on bed platform. Curtain hangs using items already installed. Need to get one more curtain.


I used a quick connect at the sink. The hose just twists on and off.


It all fits in the base. You can see from this picture that the base has a drain connection that can be opened when I have my grey water hose attached. This can be drained in to a safe area or drain at rv park.

Well if you aren't going to post pics of the shower in action then what is the point?
Then again I don't have strong enough welding googles to protect my eyes

Looking forward to hearing how it works for ya, anything to get the ladies out with us more often.

Re: The Yeti (My first Post as a SMB owner)

I don't need to get kicked off the forum. I plan on doing a test run to see how it works and how much water I use. This way I know before being out and running out of water. I hope it gets the wife out. We will see. If not at least I will smell better.

Added a map on the bed platform. I like it a lot!

Thanks. Target had them with the kid wall clinging art. I almost got the Marvel Avenger one, but decided the map worked better.

What is the base for the shower? It has a drain in it? That looks really handy and I would love to have a shower in my van.

Joanie,

It is a pan to mix cement in. I got it at HD for $5+. I cut a whole in it and put a garden hose connector with a valve so I can have it open or closed. I have not given it a final test but seems like it should work.

Re: The Yeti (My first Post as a SMB owner)

I've always entertained the idea of using a bilge pump to push the pan water into the sink but the tank is so small that you'd probably have to keep the tank drain open. In a CG that might not be the best idea and I really don't have an idea what soapy water will do to the bilge pump but the ones in my boat don't have an issue with oil. Maybe it would be a helpful solution... I don't know.
