What RV do you have? Our Silverback and our previous two Wildcats had a shutoff on the shower head.

Our last TT had an on/off switch, which was great. The new 5th doesn't have it, but it looks like the easiest way (and perhaps cheapest) way to fix this would be to change out the shower hose/head. Amazon has the Camco 43712 with an integrated on/off switch for under $13. Camco 43712 RV Off-White Shower Head with On/Off Switch : Amazon.com : Automotive

You can purchase a replacement head from most bath departments, to one that has the little shut off valve. We replaced the one in our XLR with one that has a shut off valve. It does help immensely with saving water while showering!

Look at the oxygenics shower head, helps with water pressure and has shut off on it..
We would not camp without one.

Do you mean the flow control gizmo? That will shut the water off completely?

I just put one in my camper but I haven't tested it yet.

Credille here's another hint in case you didn't know.
You can use BOTH the gas and electric on water heater for faster recovery times when you both want to take showers back to back.

Then when done with showers shut gas side of water heater off and continue with electric.

This is what we use.

I threw away the water "restrictor" that came with the Oxygenics head. I didn't want to try and manage it with soapy hands and didn't see it happening with my daughter.
