Shower hose fitting / cradle

Attached is a pic of where the shower head hose fits into the wall water tap, not sure what to call it. The previous owners had removed the hose from this faucette to winterize. When I try to reattach it, it doesn't seal. I'd like to upgrade to a better shower kit, like the Body Spa RV Shower Kit mentioned on this forum. But I can't figure out how I would connect it to this faucette. Do I need an adaptor? Or do I need to replace the whole faucette for a better more univeral version?

The water tap / faucette is low to the ground, near the shower basin, and faces up. The current hose has a hard plastic connecter of sorts that, in theory threads into the faucette female end. When I try, it doesn't seal. I've tried applying the white tape with no luck.

Anybody have something like this and found products made for it, or have replaced it?

There should be a small rubber gasket that goes in the end before you attach to the connector; mine has one. Is it possible that's missing and that's why you're getting the leak? It may have fallen out and lost or maybe thrown away because it was no longer any good.

Yes, there should be a rubber washer that will fit in between the male and female parts of the connection. Without it, you will never get it to stop leaking.

Not to steal this thread, but on the subject of the shower hose; the holder for the shower head pulled out of the wall. I have tried dry wall anchors and epoxy glue and neither hold. Any suggestions or do I go to JB weld? There were sheet metal type screws holding it on.

Ok, thanks. I'll try the rubber gasket. All I noticed was a white plastic piece that seemed to belong between the two parts. I think the company is Alons. My TT is a 98 Safari.
