At the same time?

The only time we have used campground showers (once or twice) is when we were close to having filled the grey water tank and there was no sewer. After the OEM shower head broke for the third time (each time replaced under warranty) we bought a cheap shower head ($18) at Lowe's—works much better than the extra-extra cheap OEM one.

Ours is the shower with the wheel well that makes it feel cramped, but it works and we get just as clean. I do enjoy using our shower at home more where I can stretch my arms all the way out and not touch the walls.

The Oxygenics shower head in the picture is the standard hand held model. I bought it at Camping World a couple of years ago. I connected it to Lucy's OEM shower head hose so that I didn't need to change out the holder on the shower wall. I like it very much and would not go back to the OEM shower head.

Yes, we use our shower. If the kids are really sandy from the beach we will send them to the campground shower, if there is one, just to keep sediment out of the tank.

The octopus in the picture is Oliver. He is mine, and not SuEllyn's. Oliver is my Airstream shower scrunhcy (good name) and stays in Lucy all the time. I have another similar duck scrunchy for the house.

The shower is great for accumulating enough soapy gray water to wash out the blue slinky when I dump.

We have the Oxygenics and think it's great. You should get one.

We like to boondock. Being able to take a shower makes it civilized.
Hi, I also hate to use the public restrooms Etc. For coffee and cooking, we use bottled water. We [my wife] don't drink from the fresh water tank. I don't drink water, period.

Hi, Brian. I like how you were able to use the factory shower head holder, but I don't see a shut off switch for the new head. Do you leave it running or turn the main valve on and off each time?

How does the flow rate of the Oxygenics head compare to the standard oem head? The one thing I like about the factory head is the low flow and hot water lasts a long time. Is the Oxygenics comparable? I like it in your pics.

The Oxygenics shower head has a shut off collar on the neck just below the wall holder in the photo. It is gradually adjustable from full on down to a trickle.

I find that the Oxygenics is comparable in flow rate to Lucy's OEM shower head, but it feels like I'm getting more water pressure for a better shower.

Yes

If I didn't use the shower I would be sleeping on the outside of the trailer. We use bottled water for cooking and drinking.

We look forward to the day when we don't have to use campground showers!

Actually I have used mine on occasion - at rallies were there were no showers, and at a campground or two where the showers were so bad that the B190's shower was a better option. But most of the time it's the home for the litter box.

Brian, it looks like you only put on the new head and reused the existing hose and mount from the factory shower. I noticed that this model from Oxygenics comes with its own hose, but not a mount (sold separately). Their mount looks different. Am I correct on my assumptions?

As with the majority who replied, we use our shower all the time.
