Hey All - Anyone upgrade their shower head? If so, please post which one you got. I believe the hot water tank is 2.67gal and the shower head is 2.5gpm. Doesn't leave very long for even a "camper" shower or for 2 ppl who want to shower one after the other.

I hear that the Oxygenics are supposed to be the best but we haven't upgraded yet.

The stock shower head in the BC has a button that allows u to turn the water off at the head. I find that a key feature of the stock shower head. We quickly adjust the water temp n shut it at the head n then use that button: rinse - off - lather up - off - rinse - off. NEXT!

Keep in mind it's an RV shower and water conservation is KEY unless you're hooked up to water n sewer which we almost never are.

Yup. That's why we haven't upgraded to that other shower head yet. I'm sure we will upgrade in time but not just yet.

I might have been slow on this one - the storage area underneath the seating has been a pain to load/unload while trying to keep the top open. Finally I solved that with a bungee cord hooked to the overhead bin. I can organize with both hands free now! Attachment 290972
Here is a pic of my mod using a deadbolt - a little fussing, but boy is it Handy!

Once the fridge fiasco gets figured out, I will consider a new tank cover that can double for additional storage. In the mean time my spare 25 foot hose and electrical adapters sit in there nicely (this is under the removable tray).

25' water hose vs. 50'

Has anyone ever needed more than 25' of water hose? My sister gave me a wonderful heated water hose that is 50'. It is quite large and heavy and I wondered about trying to exchange it for a 25' one. Not really a hack probably, but where to store it could be :-)

After years of schlepping heavy and inflexible clean water hoses around, I bought one of these.

It is light weight, collapses to easily store in a fraction of the space required for a conventional 25 ft. hose and generally makes my life better.

It fits in the shelf above the propane tanks along with the 120v cord with room to spare.

Gail-

In my recent trip to Kentucky this past week, I needed over 25 feet at two different campgrounds.
