Shut off valve for outside shower? Sightseer 33c

I have a 2011 Sightseer 33c. Is there a valve to close to shut off all water flow to the outside shower? And if so, where is it located? Don't use it much and if I shut off the water, one less item to winterize.

Thanks

This my 3rd Winnebago MH and I have never seen a shut off in the supply lines to the outside shower.

Thanks. That would another shortcoming of Winnebago planning.

I guess I will start to look for a way to add a shut off valve.

I never had a complaint about the little extra time and AF winterizing the shower. In thinking about it, I think you would need to install 2 valves and make sure you did not trap any water behind the valves when you close them. JMHO

Winnebago suggests using the OS shower as the low-point drain for the lines in the coach. (At least for my coach in my manuals)

As mentioned earlier the outdoor shower is the low point drain. Having said that we added 2 shutoff valves behind the panel but for a different reason.

In the fall we drain the system and install antifreeze. If we decide to use the coach during the winter months I shut off the valves to the outside shower with the antifreeze still in place. Then I flush the fresh water system and add water to the tank.

I used 2, 1/2" Flair-it fittings available online or from almost any RV supply store. Depending on where you get them they range in price from $9.95 to $18.95 each. It takes about 10 minutes to install each valve. The only tool required is something to cut the PEX water line. Then you slide the nut over the line, push the line over the valve and hand tighten the nut.

When traveling down the highway at 60 mph in -10* weather I don't have to worry about water freezing in the shower valves and hose. The under floor heater keeps the tanks and internal plumbing warm enough, but doesn't have enough output to keep the uninsulated cabinet warm in extremely low temperatures.

As a side note I haven't seen shut off valves installed on any motorhomes other than a few high end Prevost models. There are many reasons they cost $1,000,000+ rather than the $100,000 to $200,000 for most Winnebago products

Thanks. My 2008 Born Free Class C was a long range from a Prevost, but it had valves to shut off the outside shower.

Did you find the seat belts under the sofa?
