Is there a better shower head.

We have the shower head that came with our mh from the factory.
It's ok but not all that.
Has anyone found an aftermarket that gave you any improvement?

Yes. Search for shower head, several threads about this.

Yes, I thought the same, saw the Oxygenetics one at the Tampa RV show. Bought one on sale a CW. Hooked it up and it is worse than my OE in the Newmar. Posted a link about it and many people happy and thought it a good deal and quite a few like me that don't think it is worth the money. Got a lot of replies implying I wasn't doing it right--maybe, but tried several different installations including using the OE shower hose etc. The bottom line--the piping that carries the water in a MH is not very large diameter. Also the length of the piping will also affect the flow. You can only put so much pressure through a hose, and only so much gpm through a hose, and the longer the hose the more pressure you lose due to friction loss.

All that being said--best of luck. I am staying with my OE.

I really liked my first class OEM Moen shower head. There was one problem with it. We stay frequently at a campground with very low (20-25 psi) and under those conditions the Moen was marginal. After much "gnashing of teeth" I replaced with the Oxygenics.

Bottom line, with 40-50 psi water pressure the OEM Moen is better. At below 30 psi the Oxygenics is much better. The biggest difference is the Oxygenics produces a splatter type spray which many people don't care for.

It all depends on what you are "upgrading" from. My various RV's have always come with a cheezy OEM shower head that is barely better than a kitchen sink sprayer.

If your coach came with a nice shower head the Oxygenics will probably be a letdown. If it came with a kitchen sprayer shower head, then the Oxygenics is an obvious upgrade no matter how you care for the spray pattern.

At low pressure, (below 30 psi), it really does not matter how nice the OEM shower heard is, the Oxygenics is going to feel better, (even if you still don't like the spray pattern).

I bought this one for a second shower head and installed it in the skylight and it puts out enough water were you can leave it on if you like during your shower. It's like a gentle rain. I put a diverter on so I can use either one.

I bought the 'BODYSPA' from Camping world. Great improvement over the one that came with the motor home. Actually feels like it creates more water pressure. Some of the best $$ I spent.

Steve's experience mirrors my experience. I continue to us the Oxygenics because it works well at all pressures. I only changed out the head and continued to use OEM hose. Colors are a great match.

The original one in our MH was a piece of junk also. I installed this one from Camping World two years ago and am very happy with it. The water flow feels like a home shower even when on the pump. The built in water shutoff on the handle is a nice feature. Just my $0.02 worth.

A few weeks ago I bought the Oxygenics Body Spa shower head. But I plan on taking it back and exchange it for this one.

We replaced the OEM with the Oxygenics unit about 5 years ago. It works well no matter what the water pressure is. A huge improvement on the original.
