Wall Mount for Oxygenics

We have a 2008 Safari SE 27FB and are shopping for a new shower head. Several people on Air Forums have recommended the Oxygenics hand held model. With the Oxygenics, will we be able to continue to use our current pin style wall mount bracket by just screwing the new head on to the existing hose or do we have to use the one supplied with the Oxygenic shower head? I have read on other RV forums that while most like the Oxygenics product, it is heavy and the wall mount supplied frequently comes off the wall during travel.

Thanks for your help.

Susan

We are still using the original pin type hanger with our Oxygenics shower head. We kept the hanger attached to the hose and just attached the new shower head to it.

Thanks Very Much

Scott J-24,

Thanks for your help. We are going to be camping without sewer hookups in June and think the Oxygenics may be our answer to consuming less water.

We really like our Oxygenics shower head. The older version, like we have doesn't shut off the water completely but in one of the other threads I read the new ones shuts off completely. We also have a small 3 minute sand timer on the shower wall, this helps motivate you to take a shorter shower.

Safe travels,

Another way to save water is the "Navy Shower". Wet down and shut off water, soap up and scrub, turn on water and rinse off. You're clean as a whistle with less than a gallon of water.

This was way of life when I was in the Navy and at sea. We (both retired sailors) still do it when without hookups.

Doug,

Thanks for the "navy shower" suggestion. We already take navy showers when in the trailer but our OEM shower head still uses a lot of water. During our last trip out, the shower head malfunctioned so I thought this would be a good opportunity to research "water saving" shower head options since we need to replace the OEM one anyway.

If you want to save water and get a great shower Oxygenics is the best way to go.

I just installed one of these, it is very easy. Just remove the old shower head mounting bracket and install the new mounting bracket. The new bracket comes with two sided adhesive tape that sticks to the fiberglass walls. It really works well.
The model I purchased is lighter than the original.

Update on Oxygenics

Thanks to all that responded to my post. We purchased the Oxygenics shower head and installed it prior to our recent trip. We were able to use the existing mounting bracket. The Oxygenics performed wonderfully. It made an incredible difference over the OEM shower head. We wish we had purchased it sooner.

We just installed one yesterday, I replaced the mounting bracket with the one supplied with the kit. I used one of the existing holes in the shower wall to screw the bracket to the wall, and used the supplied adhesive as well. We are going to take a trip in two weeks down to Bend OR so it will be our first opportunity to try it out under real conditions, not just turn the shower on and see the water spray. I have read good things about this product, and I am about to find out for myself.

Installed ours today. We didn't get any double sided tape but that didn't matter. I used the fitting from the original shower head to keep the loop part that hangs in the pin. I also added a shower shutoff valve I got from Home Depot which shuts the water 100% off (unlike the original with the button in the shower head). Worked just fine - nice little upgrade to the shower sitch! Thanks for the suggestion!
