I treated my external ftesh water connections to a few new brass fittings, and silicone o-rings or washers. The water softener system got a new brass "y" and a patient regeneration.

Found a shower head with a lather switch to replace the OEM shower head. I am surprised they do not have an OEM one with a switch to conserve water.

Amazon.com: DF-SA400-ORB - RV Hand Held Shower Wand in Oil Rubbed Bronze - RV Shower Head Replacement: Automotive

Now I just have to replace the bathroom sink faucet. They installed it so far back and it has such a short spout you get water all over the counter trying to wash your hands.

I have the one you posted the link for...in a Sport 16 and I empty it about once a week here in humid Florida. Whisper quiet and I use it even when camping if I have shore power.

Tadashi,

That is interesting. I have a 2013 25FB Flying Cloud. It was manufactured in April, 2013. The shower head is a hand-held type, and it does have a cut-off in the handle. The cut-off reduces the flow to a heavy trickle, so it is not a 100% cut-off.

I'm surprised your 2013 does not have this. Is your shower head a hand-held model?

Also, my outside shower handle has a cut-off on it.

Mine has a cutoff as well - same "heavy trickle"

I bought today a pair of fiskar utility scissors for the trailer:

Larry, thank you for the info. Ordered one from Amazon and it works just as you said. It's going to be a great addition.

Switz, what boxes did you get? Our gens arrived a few weeks ago, and I've been looking for the 'right' sized box... I'm sorry if I missed it or didn't go back far enough...
