Shower in 33ik

Has anyone changed out their shower head in their cedar creek? Ours is just above a dribble when showering. Not sure if it is the pressure regulator or the shower head.

How's the water pressure on the kitchen and bathroom faucet? Have you checked the water pressure after taking the shower head off. If it looks good then check for debris clogging the shower head.

It is a new trailer and it is an automatic regulator set at 45 psi. The water pressure in the kitchen is good as well as the bathroom sink. I haven't taken off the shower line to see but will check that out as well.

45 psi is a tad low ... most of us run our water pressure at @60 psi. Take the shower head off and run water thru the hose to see if it appears normal. There may be a check valve or screen in the shower head itself. We ditched the OEM shower head for an Oxygenics head ... lots better.

Appreciate it, will check it out. Would like more feedback from others about their psi settings

Our experiences point more to 'flow' than 'pressure'. We found that even with 60+ psi pressure, if we were using a 1/2" hose, we may still not get a good shower.

We use a Watts whole house regulator. It's 3/4" diameter and it's set to 50psi. We also changed over to 3/4" hose. And we removed the water restrictor that's in the head of the shower head.

If you can't get past your built in regulator, you might consider bigger hose diameter and removing that restrictor from your shower head.

I just use the regulator that has a pressure gauge on it and non adjustable. Set at 40 psi with 3/4" hose. Have not had any issues in my forty years of camping and I am not that old just started early.

We had the dealer install an Oxygenics(sp) shower head when we bought ours. DW has high expectations for the water pressure and she is satisfied with the water pressure in the shower now.
