Chaz had requested info on tanks in another thread, so I'll make a new one-
Heres the best deal I found on tanks- This supplier has two identical tanks, 105 gallon, the holding tanks has a 3.5" Hole for da potty, the fresh tank does'nt (That'd be baaad!)
   $189 each plus shipping, ask for a deal on shipping 2. Fedex brought mine. These are good folks to deal with and the tanks are excellent. They fit like they were custom made for MCI, should fits others well also.

 With these installed in my bus (older foto....no paint!) there was room on the other side of the bay for my "Tim Taylor" tool box  (Arrrrrrrhhhhhhhgggghhh!) $309.00 for all at Sears.

I want to replace my outside "Shower" fixture with a stainless faucet that had a fold in the spigot( Lets see if I can make that where it makes sense) The spigot has two sections that "fold" out so that the the spigot is 12" or so long and will make the water drop on the ground instead of in the bay. Anyone know where to get one? It would be a commercial kitchen item rather than a household unit.

The pipe between the holding tanks is an aux shower drain that now has a hose attachment on it so that I can turn the valve and discharge shower water on the ground instead of in the holding tank. We use the bus for guest at home and discharge the shower water in the woods.

HTH, Chuck

I'm pretty sure sure these are the same tanks I have in my bus.  The tanks are by Ameri-Kart I believe.

I recall the same Ebay seller had these for $225 shipped around April last year when I was looking for tanks.  I bought the same tanks for I believe $159 or $169 from RV Surplus/Salvage at their store in Elkhart.  They probably ship them too.

Chuck,

I've had one of these shower pipes for years. It was given to me by a friend, was made in Europe and was very expensive at the time. It is in our guest bathroom and everyone loves it.

I recently saw one at Home Depot for a fraction of that price. I plan to get one as a spare. I call it a folding/adjustable shower pipe, they are ideal for all heights of people and all kinds of uses.

Just thought Chuck,  you could mount your faucet to a drawer slide so it slides out when you use it.
