Oxygenics might be a good shower head if you are hooked up or have ready access to water. If you boondock and need to conserve water it is not a good choice as it normally operates at about 1 gallon/minute. One gallon is the total amount of water I typically use for a shower.

Oxygenics works for us full hook up or boondocking.

Oxygenics X5 So much more water pressure and so much less water used! we have used electrical tape wrapped around our propane hoses. Seems to help.


X6 and they now come with a shutoff button

They sell stainless wraped hoses. They ate mine also. I think they like the rubber. There known to eat through wires in attics also.

And squirrels eating propane hoses? Really?


Turns out they find those hoses quite tasty.

Less someone "lubs" them with something like Tobasco Sauce.

My problem has been that our shower head has a valve on it, which I want, but they drizzle, when closed, which allows the hose to fill with cold water.
What I have done is go to Tractor Supply and in their farm/field sprayer area they have 1/2" National Pipe Tapper, NPT, to threaded Garden Hose fittings. This would be, female pipe to male garden hose, and female garden hose to male pipe.
Take the shower head off the hose, Put the adaptors on the hose and head then put a garden hose valve on the hose then the head on the hose valve.
Now the when you turn the garden hose valve off, it will not drizzle, and the water temperature will hardly change.


The REASON RV shower heads drizzle when the OEM shut off is OFF is simple. The HOSE from the faucet to the Shower head is NOT designed for continous 45 plus PSI water pressure. Purchase a metal flexable hose when installing a positive cut off Shower head valve. Doug

Sorry Doug but that's not it.
I used two shut off valves in my RV and confirmed this
The first was a full shut off, a quarter turn ball valve that I ended up using elsewhere. The problem is if you went FULL OFF then when you turned it back on (Depending on several things) you either got a blast of COLD or SUPER HOT water (120)

The "Shower cut off" dribbled. and thus did not do that. and that's why they dribble

The hose is designed to take 40-50-60-78-80 Likely 100 PSI or more for a long long time.

You know, You have NO IDEA and NO EXPERTISE, but you have constantly posted. I KNOW what I am talking about. I have 41 years of dealing with this type problem and have had numerous customers that used a positive cut off and have had the hose burst. Doug
