Sounds good. I don't have any camera on the rear of the caravan.
I don't like seeing where I  have been  Grin Grin
Your camper looks pretty good I bet when blokes see it they want you to make one for them.

Good one John.  I was going to put one on my big caravan bit ended up swapping it for the motorhome.

I have had a few comments Kev, I have a sticker which is Built not bought as I have had some question it being home made.
Derek in hindsight I should have not used the tregg coupling, as it was always problematic for me to use with this camper.

When in the early stages of building the camper I planed on water saving.
I bought a tap back then planing to divert the water back to the tank while waiting for the hot water and being able to divert during the shower as well.
I have now fitted the tap, and a diversion to the plumbing, we can now return the water before the shower head back to the tank.
I bought some chrome bits but found I could not fit them as hoped so for now 12mm push to connect fitting will do.
Alter Bonnie had a problem camping a few weeks ago, she has had difficulties getting into the camper, so it was time to fit my new eBay bling hand rail. I have wired the lights in but I doubt I will ever turn them on other than now.

Have heard of a diverter before and often thought it a good idea.  I know we waste a lot of water waiting for the hot to come through.

That is a pretty light there John.
Does your light  attract much wife life when you are out  camping?

Derek I bought the tap to do this in the early planing, but never fitted it till now. I will tidy it up a bit after trying it out.
This mob now sell a kits to do the conversion, which would look better than my job, the in-wall is a tidy fit if it can be installed.

Thanks John. 

Just looking at that I can see how simple it would be to fit it but getting the return pipe back to the tank side of the water pump could be a challenge as the shower is at the back of the the motorhome and the water tank is right up the front.

Time to put my creative cap on.

I think they plumb it ti the inlet side of the water pump, not the tank.
I have plumbed it to the tank and the problem with this is when filling the tank it could flow through the shower diverter instead if the tap is set wrong. A simple one way valve is needed to fix this though.
