How Do You Shower in a Truck Camper?

Showering in a truck camper is, for many, a necessary part of owning and utilizing a camper. Fortunately, this process does not have to be difficult or overly complicated. Although you may have to get creative with your setup, there are a few simple steps that can help make showering in your truck camper an easier task.

Step 1: Gather Supplies. The most important things you need include a fresh water tank, a 12-volt pump (or even a foot pump), and some type of shower head or hose. You may also need an extension hose if the shower head isn’t long enough to reach the desired area. Other supplies you might want to consider include towels, soap, shampoo, and other toiletry items.

Step 2: Set Up the Water System. Once you have all of your supplies ready to go, it’s time to get your water system set up. Start by connecting the 12-volt pump to the fresh water tank and then connect the shower hose to it.

If needed, attach an extension hose for extra reach. Finally, connect the shower head or hose to the other end of the line.

Step 3: Turn on the Water. Once everything is connected and ready to go, turn on the water by activating the 12-volt pump. This will draw water from the tank and allow it to flow through the shower hose and out of the shower head or nozzle.

Step 4: Take Your Shower! Now that everything is set up and ready to go, it’s time for you to take your shower! Enjoy yourself as you bathe in hot (or cold) water depending on what type of tank setup you have. Make sure that when you’re done with your shower that you turn off all valves and pumps so that no water is wasted.

Conclusion: Taking a shower in a truck camper can be challenging but with some preparation it doesn’t have to be too difficult. All that is needed is some basic supplies such as a fresh water tank, 12-volt pump (or foot pump), and some type of shower head or hose. Once everything is set up properly, then all that’s left is for you to enjoy your much deserved hot (or cold) showers!
