About a year later when I was in China I noticed there is no flow restriction on their shower heads, the hoses were great and flexible. That day I stopped at a local hardware store and they had every length you could think of. Here in the USA they limit the flow rate as well as length for safety, China... Na who cares So I bought a case of them to replace and have spares. I have replaced 3 at home, and the two on the TT.
I don't know if you still have a local hardware store in your area (Walmart and Home Depot have driven many out of business). I had the same problem with the Oxygenics hose. Went to the local hardware store and found a very flexible hose similar to what was linked to by rjackson's post above. I think it was something like $7. VERY flexible and works great.

I realize you now have enough hoses for a lifetime, but others might try their local hardware store, or if they like to gamble, order one from Camping World.

I see a few people rave about the Oxygenics shower head. I went on Amazon.com and see several models. Can those of you with positive experiences post on which exact model you replaced it with? Thanks.

We installed one of these Ecocamel Shower heads and love it. If you buy the shut off valve with it, you can shut it off when boondocking. The shut off does not seem to affect the tankless water heater either. The water comes back on at the right temperature when you turn it back on. Ecocamel Showerheads in the US

We got the chrome version and are very happy with it. The hose straightens-out in short order and when dry-camping, we use the shut-off to minimize what goes into the gray tank.

Buyers should note that there are actually 2 versions of the oxygenics BodySpa shown in the pictures in this thread. Once version has the 'smart pause' feature that reduces the pressure to a trickle by pushing a button. The second version has the 'comfort control' which allows adjustment to the spray.
2 distinct features depending what your interested in. More detail are available here. » Products Oxygenics
