Sure! ... I'm 6'4" and prefer a ceiling mounted track with a shower curtain. Shower is easier to clean, machine wash the curtain/liner or trash it, and no more slamming my noggin' on the ridiculously low shower door upper bar

If you want to "glamp" you can spring for a fabric curtain

Great Thread!

Only thing I can think of that we have never used is the stereo in the dash. We have a home surround sound system if we want to listen to music.

Makes sense, I am 6'1" I always try to find doors that clear my head. My current one does but it would smack you squarely in the noggin.

Outside shower. I unscrewed the shower head and bought adapters and one-way valve and connected it to the black tank rinser. now I just turn on the "shower" while dumping the black tank.

And things you probably want: 1) best EMS/Surge protection available. 2) a big pure sine wave inverter. 3) a paddle/ceiling fan in the bedroom.

I really like that idea too !!!

We actually use the outside shower pretty frequently (we beach camp a lot so it's great to rinse off sand before coming into the mh) but I use the black tank flush even more often ! I really like the idea of not having to connect a hose to it all the time.

Welcome. If your sensor is not reading correctly, use only hot water on the "shower" it should clear the sensor. Also allows you to winterize the rinser lines with pink.

You folks may call me redneck, but here are some of my hints

1. Keep a small ice chest for laundry. When driving in the MH, movement agitates the clothes. Replace the soapy water with clean water after a couple of hours. Replace the rinse water again. Hang clothes to dry when you get to camp. When you're out with theTOAD, put the ice chest in the trunk. See item 3 below for drying your laundry with the TOAD.

2. If you like TV dinners and frozen entrees (pot roast, pork roast, barbecue, etc. in plastic tubs), use your TOAD's engine compartment as a slow cooker. Stop first thing at the supermarket and put them in a secure place under the hood where they can't roll off. Make sure they don't get on the exhaust manifold. When you get back to camp, supper is ready.

3. Have wet towels, garments, or shoes while out with the TOAD? Put them under the hood on top of the engine. They will be dry in less than 30 minutes. This also works for wet sleeping bags.

Not offended by redneck comments.
