Ditto Oxygenics but also upgrade to this regulator, https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B003YJCE9E. It's going to give you 55 to 60 PSI as opposed to the 45 PSI in a standard regulator (which usually really only give you 35 to 40). Any modern RV can handle 60 PSI.

I always check the campground water pressure. I have not found one over 50lbs yet. My pressure at home is 60psi. If the pressure is within tolerance I do not use the regulator. I have almost no pressure if I use the regulator. My next purchase is an Oxygenics shower. I am really check out other people setups at the campground, I see very few regulators used. I also see only a few surge suppressors used, at least not at the pedestal. Just my observation.

I had the same problem with my 2015 Evo. There is an O ring washer at each end of the shower head hose. Unscrew the shower head from the hose and the hose from the faucet. On mine one of the o rings was crushed and protruding into the water stream. New washers can be found at Ace Hardware. Fixed the problem.

Oyygenics and take the little made in filter off at the water inlet on the inlet just inside the fitting

Same problem, and I bought an adjustable pressure regulator (amazon: Valterra A01-1117VP Brass Lead-Free Adjustable Water Regulator). Tried it at home after the last trip and it has made a world of difference in the shower at 55 lbs pressure. Our next RV outing is in 3 weeks so will test it at campground then.

By accident, I experienced this same thing this summer. When you want a better shower, turn on water pump. But remember to refill your fresh water tank before leaving on the road because toilets don't refill without water available! Experience this too by accident!

Thanks for all your replies fellows!!!

I tried to remove the flow constrictor last night with tweezers, but some needle nose pliers made the job easier and ripped it out moments ago.




Flow looks better already. I'll test the shower shortly to see how better it is.

When I get back to civilization, I'll look into the upgrade.

That's exactly what we have done.

And, remember, if you remove flow restrictions, tanks will fill faster. 🤔
