    Just fitting an outside shower in the m/h. The bullfinch unit has fittings for push fit connectors, the water system in the m/h uses 12mm bore flexible pipe. Any one know if you can get a 15mm push fit to 12mm tail.
    I can get a push fit tap connector and then use a 1/2" male to 12mm tail but would like a one piece option is poss.

    they dont make one that i know of. have always fitted them with a pushfit and a converter. neater than a tap connector as these are threaded and larger. the beauty of using the pushfit connector is it is easy to disconnect without messing with the jubilee clip and they can rotate and still remain waterproof. excellent with a leisure vehicle as it allows for pipes vibrating when travelling

    Something like this might be more suitable as you can use it wherever you want, rather than have to be up close to the MH:

    12v portable shower

    Hi and good morning :Smile: how about this one then ? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Caravan-1...ervan_Caravan_Accessories&hash=item338d42655c
    I think I have one so can see what a hose will fit like ?-if you use the first links you can go up from 12mm to 15 mm (half ins) then use a couple of ins of copper pipe on to your proper shower fitting bits from a builders merchant- think outside of the box :BigGrin::Wink:

    HI AGAIN I HAVE JUST TRIED THE ABOVE AND ALTHOUGH SMOOTH IT FITS THE VAN TYPE hose perfect :thumb: but I also tried half ins pipe onto a brass half ins compression fitting then onto shower head and that is even better see att pic PLUS YOU COULD EASY ATTACH A INLINE TAP which to turn on and off laving it all piped up permanently without the worry of a jub clip on smooth pipe :thumb:

    Looks like I have to accept 2 fittings. 2 fittings means 2 more joints = 2 more potential leaks.
    May try to mod the tails on the shower.

    If I fit an outside shower point , what is the best way to fit a shower hook. SWMBO likes her towel close. I will still shower inside.......

    You'll need a hook for the towel, a soap holder and a shower head holder!

    We have an external shower (standard item), and in the 5 years we've had the MH it's never been used. I find the watering can the easiest for washing off the dog.
