Latest Purchase: Oxygenics shower head, and a grab bar for the screen door. OK, all you who have recommended the Oxygenics - you better be right about it saving water, else I'll send you all a bill!

As for the grab bar, seems like every time I need to close the door, I pull the sliding thingy out of the slot. so hopefully this will cure my absentmindedness!

I don't know about saving water as much as you will like the more powerful stream of water! You will like it ....

Hmmm. More powerful stream with same amount of water! Maybe same power stream with less amount of water? Either way, should be an improvement!

The oxygen shower head uses 1.7 GPM. Not sure how that compares to the stock head, maybe someone wants to do a volume test to compare as their installing.

Great idea. When I finally get around to installing, I think I'll do that!

SlowMovin... I'm fast getting to that point myself. Maybe I can try it out on Mistie.

And I finally got my metal valve stems installed. They look like the solution to all the tire problems everyone has had with the old rubber valve stems and add-on extenders. These are one-piece and are long enough to extend through the wheel covers and still have room for the tire pressure sensors. Can't figure out Mercedes putting rubber stems that are only rated for 65psi in a tire rated for 80psi. Oh... I get it now, they recommend running at a lower pressure! I'll now be running mine at 70psi; curious how it will affect my mileage!

Got them here (here's a link) - Your Tire Shop Supply | Supplies for Tire Shops
You might want to go ahead and give them a call. Speak to Bill Falkenborg
Phone is 800-300-2674
Bill has apparently sold Metal stem sets for several Sprinter Motorhomes. He knew exactly what I was talking about when I called. I got this referral from another post on the forum.

By the way, my tire guy only charged $8 per tire to install the stems and rebalance all 6 tires. I couldn't believe it! I had a quote from another tire dealer who wanted $15/tire. Needless to say, the two guys who did the installation got a nice well-deserved tip.

Has anyone added a shelf &/or cup holder(s) near the bed? The 2013 24S is basically great but needs some place to put a book or water glass.
Thanks.........PaDawg
