It is inexpensive and much superior to the swivel that came with our trailer - metal, not plastic.

If anyone is looking to replace theirs, and having trouble finding a supplier, you might check out:

Thanks, Jay. I just ordered a replacement for our Classic with the same problem. Appreciate your help.

Glad I'm not alone on shower droop. I'm thinking of epoxying a piece of plastic about two inches big to the wall just below the shower head to hold the flexible pipe to the head and keep it upward. If I use Locktite, I may never get the shower head apart if necessary. I'll probably try a washer first, but I'm afraid of cracking the unit.

Now another issue—when I move the slide to shower off, it continues to run a bit and becomes very hot. There seems to be an imbalance between hot and cold water under lower pressure. Any ideas?
