What shower head do you use in inside and the outside shower.

My TT has an outdoor shower as well as the tub/shower inside. The first time I used the outside shower I was very disappointed in how it worked. I played around with it, and finally removed the inside shower head and installed it outside. What a difference! So, I went to my dealer and asked about getting a second shower head just like the one on the inside shower. He informed me that they no longer made that shower head and instead gave me a different shower head. Took it back to the TT, and once again disappointment. Since I am unable to locate an identical shower head to the original inside shower, I am thinking of simply replacing the inside shower head with a new one, and moving the original to the outside shower. But having now tried 2 different shower heads besides the original I am afraid of wasting my money on something that we will not be happy with. Does any handheld shower head work in a TT? I know I am going to get a lot of people suggesting the Oxygenics Body Spa RV shower head. It pops up everywhere I google. It seems people either love it or hate it. I have 4 daughters and a wife, all with long thick hair, so keeping them happy is important. Nothing worse than having 5 women upset with you because they aren't happy with the shower. As for me, I am happy with the original, as are they, but that still leaves me trying to find the right one for the outdoor shower. Heck if someone has replaced their inside and wants to ship me their old one let me know! Long story for such a simple question isn't it?

In our 2004 Designer 5er, we have the same shower head on a flexible hose indoors and outside. Both work fine. Don't know how to help you, but if you could find the kind that came in Jayco 2004s, you might be happy. Another thing - could it be the pressure (or lack of it) that is the problem ? If that is the problem, maybe you could find a more powerful pump. But be careful not to over pressurize and blow a line connection.

Get a brass 1/2" MPT to 3/4" male hose adapter and attach it to your outside shower hose. Then you can connect any garden sprayer to it. Works great, only costs a few bucks.

I have 2 oxygenics on the outside and inside heads. The water coming out is significantly less but pressurized in a way that it's not that noticable IMHO. I invested in them primarily for my boondocking days and my tank fills up over more days as a result. If you are a full hook up or seasonal camper 90-100% of the time and water management is of no concern then any shower head is going to work. My wife has thick hair as do my two girls and it not a point I hear about. If they can stay in there longer with less water use they are happy, as am I.

On the upside your water heater will keep up better to due to less flow.

Just my 2 cents.

Those of you using the oxygenics outside, does it fit in the compartment? And do you have a way of hooking it like the original shower head does? I have it inside and it's great, but our outside shower barley works. It needs to be changed.

I use an adapter and a hose sprayer outside. Inside, I replaced the stock sprayer with a better one and added a Danco shut off valve. Not Oxygenics.
