It's not only the cat's meow, it's the cat's pajamas!

We installed one in our former V-Lite (which we traded after 8 months) and would have removed it before trade but couldn't find the original shower head. grrrrr So off it went to the new owners!

Bought a second one before we even left the dealer's lot with the 5er.

The small trickle re the shut off doesn't bother us in the least.

One of the first modifications I made, was to install a Oxygenics shower head. Saves water, increases water pressure, or leastgives the allusion of more water pressure.

Purchased our 3051S a year ago (2013 model) and it did NOT have a shutoff in the shower handle. We had to spend about $20 for a new handle from Camping World. I would have thought that RV's should come with the shutoff as our old towable had this feature.

X2. I thought it was a gimmick but this is the 2nd RV I've had one installed on.

On the water shut-off, every RV I ever had - the showerhead water shut-off "leaked" water when off. My thought is that this is by design to allow hot water to continue to mix rather than go from scalding to cold. Even the outside shower doesn't completely shut off.
I find that the Oxygenics does a better job of maintaining the temp than the previous showerhead when switched from off to back on.
In this coach I also notice that the water heater is much closer to the shower so the line run may also have something to do with it.

Post a pic???? I'll make sure we're not getting the wrong part.

PS. I have made contact with Oxygenics. I have a sample coming and if it is the "cat's meow" like everyone claims we'll see about making it standard. The engineer is going to test it in his trailer.

My only concern is their shut off does not completely shut off (by design) it trickles out in a tiny stream to prevent scalding. I just don't want those calls saying its broken.

Only thing on tap is to divert water from spout to shower handle.
