How It Works
1. Mount it to your rack
The Road Shower has a T-slot on the underside built into the aluminum body. A 5/16” carriage bolt slides from the end to the location of your mount. It attaches to Yakima Round, Thule square bars, factory mounted racks, Aeroblade, T-Channel crossbars. Road Shower is the only rack mounted portable solar shower on the market!
2. Fill it up
Use a jug or garden hose to fill the tank with up to 5 gallons of water.
3. Let it heat up
Road Shower uses the renewable energy of the sun. The water temperature rises 12-20 degrees per hour on a warm sunny day (if the water starts at 60 degrees it should be 90+ degrees in about 2 hours). Be careful on very hot days as you may have to add cold water to the tank to avoid scalding. Touch the tank with your hand first to determine temperature or use a little stick thermometer. Alternatively, the Road Shower does not heat water as well if the outside temperature is below 70 degrees. On cloudy or rainy days you can heat water on a camp stove, and add warm water to the tank as needed.
4. Pump it up
The Road Shower works well using gravity for washing hands, showering or cleaning spills. You may need to remove the cap to allow air to enter the tank when using regular gravity. However, if you need to add pressure to the tank you can do so with a hand pump, a CO2 cartridge pump, a tire inflator or a compressor. When pressurized, you can squirt a jet of water up to 60 feet. If your Road Shower is full, you will need to drain a little before you can start pumping. The Road Shower comes with a pressure relief valve on the cap for safety to prevent over pressurization. The cap valve releases at around 18 PSI> If you use a compressor be sure to never exceed 18 PSI for your safety.
5. Take a shower!
Time to get clean! Use the Road Shower as a shower or to clean off gear. The nozzle has 7 different settings, or you can remove it if you need a lot of water fast.
New and Improved
The Road Shower launched a successful campaign on Kickstarter in 2013 which drew lots of attention to the product and allowed for the following improvements: The hose comes out the back which allows the shower to be mounted to flat surfaces, like the roof of a camper or the top of a boat. The elbow is out of the way and made of brass. 3 heavy duty clips are added instead of 2. A velcro strap is added to ensure the hoses does not come loose on bumpy roads. The ends are factory made with brass fittings. An improved mounting clip is included which allows mounting to almost all rack systems and factory luggage racks.
