Yep, I wasn't thinking on 8 cylinders about mixing water hot and cold. Interesting graph shows water consumption at both flow rates. The stated flow rate is at 80 psi. Obviously we don't use such high pressure, so flow rate is considerably less. I would in fact consider the higher flow rate model in this case. Not much difference between them anyway.

Oxygenics Shower Head ?

We have weight police, grammar police, so why not specificity police


We have the Oxigenics BodySpa RV. Is there a reason to toss that out in favor of the Fury, other than having multiple spray patterns? We have only used the BodySpa for one shower each. We bought our TT in late October and Winterized it in early November. We do the abbreviated showers, as described. We will be installing a replacement for our Thetford toilet with a Dometic 310 with a bidet spray attached to the seat bolts, which pre-augments the quick shower.

We still prefer the original, one spray pattern in the RV. We do use the multi spray pattern Oxygenics in the house. Don't remember which model. Funny thing is, with all the available spray patterns, we always use just one of them

I'd stick with what you have and use the money on something else you really want and will return more value/performance.

NJKris also makes a valid argument about "cold showers" and small water heaters.
Correct.

I just reused the existing showerhead holder.

On my old rig, I added an extra (higher up so I could actually stand and shower) showerhead holder and used screws for that.

Those walls are so terribly thin that it doesn't seen to be long before the screws start backing out and there isn't much there for them to bite.

For my DW and I, the stock showerhead in our rig works just fine. Like a lot of other posts, we don't spend enough time in the RV shower that a multi-spray shower head and the like are going to make a difference. When we had one in our home, almost never did we ever change the flow pattern, and when traveling and staying in hotels again who changes the flow pattern found on most hotel showerheads?

Even when we have full hooks ups that would give you the opportunity to take longer showers both my DW and I try not to deviate from our normal routine, or, get too spoiled because the bulk of the campgrounds we stay at don't have full hook up luxury.

I don't have much to compare it to because we bought the fury model and installed it right away after buying the tt. I just used the showerhead holder that was already there (like Ependydad did). It worked fine. We do occasionally change the pattern and I do like the fury very much.

So, in staying with the Oxygenics discussion, is the Oxygenics Body Spa for RVs a noticeably better shower than say a stock shower head?
We're also replacing the faucet with spout to a faucet without a spout. The stocker always trickled off pressure /water while showering. Also the hose outlet for the shower hose is on top of the faucet where the stocker shower hose outlet is underneath. I figure it will give us a few more inches of shower hose.

Definitely better than the stock shower head. When we first replaced our old trailer, the stock shower head water just ran straight down with no stream. Oxygen tics shoots out and we love it...

Whitaker, your current faucet dribbles water to keep the hot water hot. I thought the same thing as you with our previous rig when the showerhead always leaked as I thought only to find out why they are made that way.

Ha! Isn't that the way it is? And the pattern you chose is probably the pattern put out by the fixed spray head!! LOL

I have the stock shower head and one thing I discovered was that I didn't have the faucets turned open fully.

May sound obvious but ever since I turned the hot and cold fully open, and then adjusted for temperature, I find the water pressure even on 12V to be acceptable.

The hose length is less acceptable but I can deal with that.

I've decided to put money into other upgrades and maintenance.

We've changed to the Oxygenics Body Spa, on our current and previous trailer's. We are quite happy with them, especially the more forceful spray that stock ones were sadly lacking in.

I see where several folks aren't happy with the shower head hose. Most are standard fittings and you can purchase any style, flexibility, or length you need.
Here are just a few from one source: https://www.homedepot.com/b/Bath-Bat...s/N-5yc1vZbrfn

Same here. Probably have spent as much as the TT cost.

A big difference is camp site water presure. Shower head helps but really works if you spend time to adjust how much presure you allow in I have checked my long term site and it is at 40 psi so I allow full presure in and now the shower presure is fantastic.
I do not think i would allow much more over 40 psi or need yo.

Resurrecting this line of discussion ...now with COVID we are showering in our camper only to stay safest possible and the showerhead sucks (in 7 yrs have probably used it only 5 times...we have always been pretty happy with CG showers).


So is the jury still out on BodySpa vs Fury model??? Looks like BodySpa adventure model sits right in the middle with 3 settings instead of 2. Tired of washing my hair off the hose cause shower doesn't have enough pressure to even begin to let me shampoo my hair.


Thanx!
