    I know that quite a few like to use site facilities and that some of you really hate having to keep pressing that button in the shower.
    I was having a mooch about the web and found this and thought some of you would like it

    Hi Chatter

    This company had a stall at the Northern Motorhome Show this year. Think they were selling them for £7.99 for 2.

    Good idea though as long as you remember to take them with you. No good if you get in the shower and then remember you have forgotten it. Its then Oh Bu^^er!!!:Eeek:

    Regards Chris

    LOL Maggie. Dread to think what other campers would think if they saw you disappearing into the cubicle with that under your arm......::bigsmile: their mind would boggle.

    It's strange but the device is all about leaving the shower running continuously and thus wasting water but the webpage has articles on how to save water. The best way to simple ave water is to noy use the device.

    Having said that I hate showers that won't stay on and will only give you a preset temperature, usually too cold but sometimes (on hot days) too hot. I much prefer sites with proper shower controllers.

    So disappointing to find out that this was about showers, rather than singing melancholy songs in the shower.......:rollingeyes:

    I bought these 2 years ago. They worked great for a while then kept falling off. I'm going to try the Velcro thing as I have some of those.

    Zip ties with a release-type buckle work for me.

    I thought that part of the camping fun was not washing ! Napoleon used to send a message to Josephine saying " on my way home, back in a fortnight, do not wash ! True, the dirty old git.
    Personally I shower once a week wether I need it or not.
