You, AND your wife need to learn how to take a "GI shower". Get wet, turn water off, soap up, wash hair, whatever, turn water back on to rinse off. Plenty of water for 2 or more showers when you understand this technique.
Even a propane HWH will not provide hot water for both of you if the 1st person takes a 7 minute shower.
Never going to be like at home. You need to adjust. Later RJD

Re-do the test. If your stock head pumps less than 1.6 gpm, you have the wrong model oxygenics. Just sayin'

You need to talk to Glenn and Youroo, I personally don't care one way or the other. I bought the Oxygenics because everyone was saying how much better they were. I just don't see the difference or any improvement one way or the other. Plus the Oxygenics didn't come with a shutoff which IMHO is a negative.

As did mine. Must have added it after sometime. Had mine for three or so years.

I travel alone and enjoy my showers. I replaced my 6 gal HW heater with the Truma continuous HW heater. It runs on 12V and propane. Dealer gave me a credit on the original HW heater. Plenty of HW for showers and washing dishes. I've been very pleased.

If you travel with six, you might give it a consideration. You won't have to wait to replenish the HW if the group is getting ready to go out.

If you are going to go tankless ( which sounds like the best solution under the circumstances) definitely go propane. A 110V Tankless water heater in an RV ( 50A service max) will never keep up.

Yes, they do have them, but they are quite slow to heat as compared with gas.
