Showerhead Help

Hello All, I need some ideas on how I might be able to hang my showerhead up in my popup trailer. I hate having to hold it all the time and it makes it difficult for the kids too. Any ideas? Pics would be great if you have them.

The problem with the pop-up "phone booth" shower is the fact you have to be completely surrounded by the shower curtain to make it water tight, so there is no way to attach the showerhead to the wall without leaving a big gap in the curtain. We have the same issue with our pop-up, but I am in the process of solving the problem. I cut out a 4" square piece of steel, ordered a strong 3" round magnet, and a shower head bracket. The shower head bracket is screwed to the magnet and the steel plate is permanently attached to one of the shower walls. After the shower is set up, and the curtain is hung, the magnet with the bracket is then stuck to the plate with the shower curtain between them. As soon as I get it all installed, I will take some pictures and post them.

Here is a picture of the shower head bracket stuck to the steel plate on the wall behind the shower curtain.


Here is a picture showing the plastic holder attached to the magnet.

Nice!!!!!! I was thinking of putting the holder on the ceiling but the hose is to short. Trying to find or make a longer hose now but not having much luck!

Bob,

Thank you for sharing your awesome idea! We also own a 2013 Rockwood HW296 and I was trying to think of a way to mount/hang the shower head. I was leaning toward fabricating a mount out of 1/2" PVC and mounting it from the ceiling until I saw your post. I made the mod last week and we used it over the Independence Day weekend and it worked great!
Carl

The people of this forum continue to amaze me with their mods and inventions.

Should patent this! I predict the magnetic shower head holder will soon be included in pop ups.

Glad I could help. For those wanting to attempt this mod, the magnet I used is 3" diameter, and has something like 95# pull. I got it from Northern Tool. The actual shower head holder is the one that came with the trailer, and I just removed from the wall it and put in on the magnet. Also, I finally upgraded to a Oxygenics shower head, and believe me, all of that marketing hype about it is actually true, and is well worth the money.
