Some sites require long power leads, long water hoses and a water splitter. There is a variety of over 300 sites with some having power, some water, some with both. Some sites require gray water storage. Check when booking. Some showers are free but can run out of hot water while others require a token (cost $1 for 5 minutes) but have plenty of hot water.
