Bathing in an RV

DW decided she wanted to take a hot bath last night and used the small tub in the shower of our Winnebago Chieftain for the first time. She said it was very relaxing.

I wonder how often adults actually use those tiny tubs to bathe in, since it looked limited to children when I first saw it. Personally, I'll pass and stick with the shower.

I actually used ours once ,in our old Motorhome.
With me in the tub (250lbs) it only took about a quart of water to fill er' up !!!
What I did like about the tub was that I made a seat that went across the tub from side to side.
It was great to sit down to wash your feet .

The tub is probably the only thing I'll miss on my old TT. Had the hump in back where you could sit but was only big enough to get your calves wet if I tried to fill it. The new one will have a shower stall.

only my dog

We have a tub in our chieftain too and also in our boat but never use for us. However our little doggy loves her bath. I really like the large enclosure for the shower.

We have never used the shower/tub (use the CG showers) and I am glad that we haven't. The drain isn't hooked up to the P-Trap We have had the MH going on 3 years, the couple we bought it from had it for 28 years and never used it. So last fall I wanted to see what was behind a cutout under the shower enclosure. There it was, the p-trap off the drain tube by 1/2 to 3/4 of a inch. There was nothing in the p-trap as far as gross stuff or anything else and it looks like it just came off the Store shelf. I am not sure why I never tried the faucet but I'm glad we didn't. I see no evidence of water damage.
I have found a plastic pipe @ Manards that has one end made to work for just that problem (bend) and then be able to hook up to the p-trap. We are planning on going FT next fall. I can't wait to hook it up and see how it works, and then be able to use the shower. The tub part well @ 6'1 and 240,I'll pass...
I can't emanage the folks from yesteryear taking a bath it in a wash pan.

I keep thinking of visiting one of those walk-in tub places and they make one that I suspect would fit in the space where my current phone booth shower is (Might need to make a few SLIGHT mods).

Add a demand heater for the water (Tankless) and I could sit and bathe.

or pull one of the lavs in the main bath and put in a real tub I think I'd fit.

But alas, no dough for that job yet.. I do miss a good bath.

Problem 2...80 gallons fresh 36 wash (plus 36 Gray plus 36 Black) though in many places I can dump wash right on the ground without violating any laws. (not so many gray and absolutly none on black).

What, you ask, is the difference between WASH and GRAY? The kitchen sink of course.. Food particles.

The problem I see with one of those walk-in tubs, is sitting there waiting for all the water to drain so I could open the door to step out. BRRRR.
