    Nautilus in Imagine

    Wondering if anyone has installed the Nautilus system in an Imagine. Lots of things I really like about it, wish it came from factory. I know the pump switch would be challenging but the rest is just plumbing, should be possible.

    You're better off making your own system with real valves from a hardware store. The P1 system is more like doll house valves and cant be operated under pressure. Search the forum for 'good bye Nautilus' and you can see what i did when I took the Nautilus out of my Momentum.

    The “wet bay” is my biggest hate of the imagine

    My trusty Jayco had a functional outdoor shower on the side and a simple water connection on the outside of the trailer
    I would gladly trade it all for an open storage area

    Mind sharing a link? The search isn’t bringing anything up.

    Different strokes for different folks I guess. The wet bay is one of our biggest loves of the Imagine. (Along with the rear spray port)
    I like the hose feed thru the anti-critter door and the in-line water filter is inside where it can’t be stolen. We have never used the outdoor shower on any rig we’ve owned, but we have used it for cold rinse of something or to fill the dog’s water bowls. The spray port is ideal for this. We have no issues with storage but I can see why those with families might want the space.

    The issue I have with it is the spider web of connections that just lead to problems instead of just a simple connection
    YMMV
    I used my outside shower daily to wash hands after preparing meals and after rig maintenance
    I have never had a theft of anything in my years of camping

    I hear you. on my trailer, the rear spray port is fed off the cold feed to the hot water tank, the water is warm enough to wash your hands. Shower ports, even on other trailers were always on the street side of the trailer, which to me seemed almost useless - but as you note YMMV. When de-winterizing this year had to rap the quick connect shower valve with a drift to free it up as it is never used.
    i agree with the rat’s nest of plumbing in the wet bay, designed by someone whose brother must work for an RV repair shop on a good hourly rate. A disaster waiting to happen.

    I agree the plumbing rats nest is only second to the Rube Goldberg electric wiring .
