X2 on the Oxgenics shower head, does streach the hot water supply. Also bumped up the high limit temp in the tank which was the better water stretcher.

From experience that little switch on the water heater itself will self destruct rather quickly. I found it better to leave the switch on and turn off 120VAC at the breaker.

Re heater element upgrade. There was a post on it back a ways, went from 1440 to a 1500 or so. Easy change out that means using more cold water to hot water mix. Hot water last longer as flow rate is reduced while showering. Got higher wattage element fron Internet rv dealer after reading post last year.

Be very careful - be very careful using the valve in the shower head for a GI shower, there are no check valves on either hot or cold water lines in the shower, hot water tends to back up in the cold water line. Some RV hot water tanks temperatures are over 150 degrees (scalding hot - been there done that).

In Youroo's testing, the oxygenics shower head used MORE water the the factory supplied shower head.
Sorry
