Shower head

I have a 3050. I use a water pressure regulator. Whether its on or off I still get very low pressure and flow from the shower head. I'm thinking of replacing the factory model with another in hopes getting a more usable shower. Any suggestions on a shower head.

I just went to Wal mart and bought one that lets me shut off the water from the shower head, to save water while showering. It has three different sprays and it is better than the one that came with the rig!

Do you get a reasonable water flow elsewhere? If so, there may be an obstruction in the shower head itself or it may be a design issue for water conservation. I replaced my shower head with a Body Spa shower with oxygenics (can get it at Camping World or Amazon). It has some sort of amplifying technology that is able to deliver a stronger spray regardless of water pressure. Hope that helps.

I replaced the factory shower head and hose in my #3051S. The model I use is also sold at Camping World. I get a decent flow using a pressure regulator.

I have purchased several shower heads and the best one IMOH that gives good performance in low water pressure with an easy on/off button.

I just ordered the shower head most are recommending. Spending four months in the RV why not try something different.

Water Pressure

i have the same problem. Seems as if the water pressure is low. I thought it was because FR put a water regulator in the unit? Should I buy and use a regulator?
