I have several options/possibilities for the water hookup but won't be installing a hot water heater in the trailer.
● Since we have an outside shower with hot and cold running water, I could tap into those water lines and create 3/4" hose connections. Install those connections into the face of that compartment by the others and run two seperate hoses to the trailer if needing both hot and cold seperately.
● Or since the outside shower has its own mixing/seperate temperature knobs, I could run one line from the output of the shower, run that to the washer and "T" that hose at the washer so it can be hooked up to both the cold and hot water connections at the washer. The temperature adjustment would then be controlled at the shower. It wouldn't matter the setting made on the washer itself then.
● Or just simply "T" off after our filter (and soon to have softener) at the outside connection and run one to the coach and the other to the trailer.
I think I'll leave the decision up to the wife without informing her of the details. If it's important enough to her to have hot water, I'll be using one of these options.
I know there may be some that will question whether or not we will have enoungh hot water to do this if we decide to but our experience with our water heater has been pretty good compared to what others have experienced with theirs that I've read about on these same forums. Yes, we have a 10 gallon heater but I've taken complete showers myself and then turned on the water in the living room sink and still find 120 degree hot water. We have yet to time and see just how long it takes before it goes cold.
I'm getting a softener soon since this is a new coach. I want to make sure the water/plumbing/fixtures are taken care of asap.
