As far as I know it is supposed to dribble. So it does not shock you with a temp change.
Mine dribbles and still shocks.

I called today and that's exactly what they told me. They called it high pressure and low pressure.

If it's normal then I'll accept it. I can always add a full cutoff valve later but I'm thinking I might like the lack of temperature change.

I'll possibly check it this weekend.

My TT would absolutely knock you down with the temperature shock, even holding my hand up to deflect the water it was bad, I don't know where it got water that cold.

The 5er isn't nearly as bad, so maybe with the dribble it will be ok. I'm wanting to measure how much water it dribbles during a typical soaping up duration so I can decide if I want to put a full cutoff on it.

Ours cuts off *completely* not even a drop. I wonder if it is the type of cutoff? Ours is all metal (including the cutoff ball valve)

This is the one we got:
Danco 89171 Shut-Off Shower Valve, Chrome - Faucet Valves - Amazon.com

Oh and I would not trust it in a million years LOL - I still angle the Oxygenics to the side when I cut 'er back on )

I think we're all talking about the valve that comes with the Oxygenics these days. Sounds like you've got an early one without the valve and you installed your own; so I'd say, Yes, it's the type of valve. Yours is probably made to actually cut off all the flow.

(Actually, I think you can still buy one w/o the valve if you want to.)

I agree... still angle it away as well. It is cooler when I flip it on but no where like the original's polar plunge!

On one of the other forums someone explained that the reason it happens is because when you shut off the valve for the shower head the path from the cold to hot water is open through the shower body. When you close the shower valve the air pocket in the hot water tank allows the cold water to backup into the hot water line. His solution was to place a spring loaded check valve in the line coming from the hot water tank. To the shower. Haven't tried it yet but it does make sense.

Replaced the DPDT switch on my axle jacks with an auto return to center off DPDT switch. Will put a limit switch on both sets of stab jacks and the landing jack when the electrical guru gets the design done. Have to use a relay to protect the micro switch which will be used as the limit switch.

After 4 months, it's about time. You are ahead of ependydad, he still hasn't mounted his and he's had them over a year.

When they first came out they didn't have a shut off with them. Now they come with one. I had to buy my shut off and it doesn't leak at all. It's metal and got it at West Marine, but it was not cheap, it was like 35.00 or so. I don't really get a big difference in temp. Maybe for a second or so. I never heard of leaking to keep the temp the same....

Finished sealing the Kitchen slide, could see light behind the couch. The propane/AC/12 entrance point leaked water and caused mildew. This most likely happened when travelling through a microbus outside North Bay. I also used 2 more tubes sealing up all kinds of gaps and holes.

Walked past it and whimpered, knowing I have to start loading everything back in it that we took out before taking it in for warranty work. Gotta start that tomorrow since we're leaving out Friday!

1. stock the bar back up (no way were we gonna leave that in there!)
2. re-stock the fridge...move all the condiments, etc. back in.
3. put the Igloo ice maker back in.

etc., etc., etc.
