Outside Shower

So I got to try our outside shower on our last camping trip. The water just trickles out of it. I took off the hose and there is only a tiny little hole the water shoots out of ,when turned on. I thought I put it together wrong but you really can't. Am I missing something are all outside showers that weak with that tiny hole for the water to come out of. My old trailer the outside shower was never power full but it was like a light shower. Has anyone made any modification to other outside shower that worked. Does anyone else have this problem.

I assume you adjusted the flow lever on top of the shower head

I have the same problem with my 2015 Jay Flight. Has anyone drilled our that small hole to see if that improves the shower?

We replaced the worthless original shower head with this one, which works great:

We have plenty of pressure. Is your problem with the shower head or the supply line? Disconnect the shower head and see if you are getting good flow. Ours has that small hole as well, but we get good pressure. We sometimes use the outside shower with a hose adapter to supply our outside portable kitchen sink. No problem with pressure there.

I am going to ask the obvious as well - did you pull the hose all the way out to make sure there was no kink in the line? I haven't seen this, but I suppose it is possible that the hose could get twisted back behind the panel and be cutting off the supply to the showerhead. I have good pressure on my outdoor shower. I don't use it too much. We did replace the showerhead in the bathroom to the one above and that really made a difference. I actually like taking a shower in there now. It only took one trip with the original to figure that one out.

Yes I tried all this and there is good pressure out tiny hole when removed. There are no kinks or obstructions in the hose. There is however two different size rubber washers on each end hole size of the washer. Don't know what is wrong but that is a small hole the water comes out of when the hose is off.

Sounds like it is time to invest in a new Showerhead, unless that's included in the things you've already tried.

The flow restrictor normally used on the shower head in order to get the 3 gpm rating has 3 small holes. Wonder if the one that came with your shower head is defective and only had the one hole when manufactured.
