Shower head question

I'm back with another hopefully simple question.
To change the shower head in our camper, can I use a regular
house type (like from Menard's, etc.) or is a special RV one required?

Thanks again!

Just like the ones in your house you can get at Menards. The issue might be with your TT's water flow/pressure.

There is a RV one out there that everyone likes, I just forgot its name at the moment. I am sure someone will mention it.

We have this one and it works great. Many people remove the factory ones for the Oxygenics.

The Oxygenics don't come with a shut off. You can get one at Lowes or HD for a few dollars and install it just under the handle. Saves a lot of hassel when it comes to turning the water on and off after you get the temperature where you want it.

Had a oxygenics and the wife said take it out. Too loud and pressure was too high on her. Went back to a standard plastic head (Bed Bath & Beyond) and she's happy with the softer spray.
If momma's happy I'm happy.

Happy trails,

They have a new one with the shut-off valve included. I have seen them advertised but never had one.

Just a personal preference: I bought a Oxyenics and gave it away. Neither me or my wife liked it.

Again, thank you for the input. I'm not sure what we're going to do, yet. At least the shower in this
trailer works better than our previous one.

Soulman, is the problem about the flow rate at your shower head? If it's better when you run your pump than on full hookup, try a higher pressure regulator. There's one at CW for $10 that provides 55psi to the camper [assuming you use a regulator]. The pump in my Eagle provides 55psi. If you have the Sureflo Revolution pump, it's rated the same. My shower pressure was fine while on the pump, it was usually the CG water pressure that was the problem. BTW, my 2012 F-250 is Crimson & Cream- not really, it's black and no gold-ever. lol Terry
