I note that Oxygenics has 2 models of shower heads specifically for RV use.
We turn Oxygenics shower head turned on all the way in trailer and at home . You can have your hot and cold facet not turned on all the way though . Pat

Here is what I found:

BodySpa RV Handheld Shower - 26788 1.8 GPM

BodySpa RV Handheld Shower - 26786 2.0 GPM

So yes. I have one that I got off Amazon and really like the spray. Now I will need to figure out the model to see if I am saving any water! LOL!

I am on my first long trip in the trailer after installing the Oxgenics shower head. As soon as I am camped in one place for two weeks running I'll know for myself.

My friend John is visiting, photographing Death Valley with me. I read him some of the posts in this thread and he said the following:

John: Tell them I, a Ph.D. mathematician, said that the Oxgenics shower head probably produces a more forceful stream, making people use it for shorter periods of time, thus saving water.

Me:

But I think he's right-- the water stream from the Oxgenics seems stronger than the stock shower head, so I probably use it less. I'll know for sure in a few weeks.

p.s.: John is a good guy-- he has an Escape 21, after all.

I think your friend is correct.
Another way to save water is to get wet, shut off the water, lather, rinse quickly.

This is the one I put in

I think Mikes friend might be right on. My wife says this shower head gets the shampoo out of her hair, the stock one she wasn’t able to shampoo because it wouldn’t completely rinse.
I can’t comment on that cause I have nothing left to shampoo.
