I got the chrome finish from camping world and it didn't come with a shut off valve but I called and they sent one right over free of charge. It does splash more than a regular shower head but I guess that gives the allusion of more pressure. All in all I still use it but kept my old shower head just incase.

Try getting in the shower, closing the door behind you, taking the shower head out of the holder, then turning the water on while pointing the shower head down at the ground. Now adjust the water temperature.
It's not an illusion...this shower head rinses shampoo out of my hair faster than a residential shower head. Also, we can take an entire shower AND rinse down the shower walls and still not run out of hot water. It sounds as though you don't really have a need for a shower head like this.

I will second this for sure....I do the exact same with same results

Used ours for the first time this weekend. Why did I wait so long to get it?? It is much better! Only complaint is we have a shower curtain and now with the added force of the new shower head it launches the water towards the back and it can leak onto the floor as another poster suggested. Looking for a new shower curtain now because the better pressure is worth it!

Just ordered one from one of the amazon links you guys provided. I cannot wait to get it! I have thick, long hair and I usually go to the campground showers because it takes forever in the camper to wash and rinse my hair. I think the one I ordered has a shut off valve. Let's hope so because I think we only have a 4 gal tank in our camper! Lol!

If it comes in the original packaging it should include the shutoff valve.
My daughter has one in "her" bathroom and says it's the best thing ever, we had to get a new one for the trailer

We got a separate cut off valve from amazon and mounted it on the hose attachment at the faucet. MUCH easier to control water flow.

Had some "guests" camping with us over the holiday weekend...their 2 observations were:
1. The shower was as good - maybe better than the one they had at home!
2. The 8289WS air bed was almost like sleeping on a sleep-number bed!

New to the forum so hope this question is not off topic.
My Cedar Creek fifth wheel has coppertoned plumbing i.e. faucets, shower head and hose etc. I have really low shower pressure in the shower and would like to change the head for an "Air water fusion" type. Does anyone know if a copper tone replacement is available.

Don,

First off Welcome to the Forums from Huntsville, AL!

Not sure if this will work for you but IMHO even if it does not match, this shower rocks - just like being home!
