X2 - they may cost a little more, but far better quality and will be fault free for far longer...

Just ordered two of these to try. Looks like the bottles are covered and are captive behind the front lid so they won't go anywhere.

We wont need a hand soap dispenser at the sink as you can reach around and get it from the bottom dispenser of the shower. Saving space, weight and money

What do you think? is my idea doomed from the start?

Any chance of soap residue (from wet soapy hands or from the dispenser itself) dripping on to one of the lower ones? It's one thing cleaning soap up off a shower floor and something else if it dries on one dispenser below the other.

Good point however we are adamant to keep things clean after showering etc . I honestly thing yiu can never have a perfect set up.

I've taken two showers in my trailer, neither one was great. Tried taking a "normal" shower and the hot water was gone way too soon. Next, I tried turning off the water between rinse/shampoo/soap/rinse...and it was alternating Hot Lava/ICE/Hot Lava/ICE..

Though, I was awake after the experience.

I must be doing it wrong

I like the idea of the soap dispenser and am going to copy you. Just not sure i want to actually take another shower.

LOL! OMG that was too funny! Thanks for sharing. What I am thinking of doing also is buying the Camco Hybrid Heat so you have a faster recovery while u r showering. I don't think it's going stop you running out of water but it will definitely help the situation if you slow down the water rate. Heard a lot of good feedback about the Hybrid Heat solution

I love that solution too. And it looks really uncluttered. Always a good thing in small places.

This is the kind I have in the stick n brick... I was a bit disappointed the pump mechanism failed on a couple of them rather quickly, but 3 of 6 of the pumps work ok still. I imagine if I wanted to I can buy new bottles for them and fix that problem, never checked into it as 2 of the non functioning ones are in the guest bath which rarely gets used, and in the other, hubbies products are still in it and he uses it, my section of the 4 product dispenser... well, I have bottles sitting on the ledge now...

That is the difference in buying quality... It may cost a little more, but you get what you pay for...

I have had the "simplehuman Stainless Steel 15 fl oz Wall Mount Dispenser" with the three dispensers in the s&b, and in the RV for several years.... Never an issue with failure, breakage, clogging, or mount issues... Would highly recommend them...
