Well, the shower head that is in there now has a cutoff, but the pressure coming out is horrible. With all the talk of the Oxygenics, I had to try it. It can't be any worse.

This next weekend will be a good test. There will be 4 of us camping for 3 1/2 days running off of the fresh water supply. Any conservation will be good.

I have to haul all of my water in to my campsite. Maybe I should look into on of the shower heads.

Something else I have a habit of doing (I read this tip on RV.net) is when we wash dishes, we do so in a dishpan. After we're done, we pour that soapy water down the toilet. It seems to keep the black water tank cleaner (fewer level sensor issues) and again saves on the gray water filling too fast.

We wash most of our dishes outside, like we did in out tent days. Except, I use the outside shower and use hot water. That way, we keep from filling our grey tank and puts less grease in it as well.

I've done that too.

Outside shower is also the best way I've found to clean fish. No mess/stink in the trailer!

I hate to be a wet blanket but we purchased the Oxygenics head on our last rig and never liked it. Our major complaint was the water was like a mist and hard to get a good rinse.

I guess there is always someone that has to be different.

Also, I did not vote for Obama. LOL

Just finished sanitizing the fresh water, so I decided to put on the Oxygenics head. Using just the onboard water the spray from the Oxygenics seems to be about 2x better (harder) than the factory unit. While I didn't take a shower, it did seem to be more than a mist, but I can see where norty is coming from on this. Looking forward to next weekend when it gets a workout!

I just installed the chrome one on our shower. I think it uses I.7 gal/min. I definitely need to install a shut off switch. Mine came with a fitting that adjusts the spray which I haven't installed yet. I haven't seen anyone talk about this yet so I don't know if it is new or not.
The shower worked well.

The white one that I just got has that spray adjuster too. I have read that a lot of people don't like that because it takes 2 hands to operate. The on/off switch seems like a far better deal.
