I have had Cougars for years and I want to make improvements to this new 2015 313 we just bought last week. The shower is a poor quality setup and you waste a lot of water trying to get the temp right as the plastic expands with the hot and cold water flow.

Best upgrade, wife happy. WIN!

A super good change from the oem shower head. We have had ours for close to a year. Between DW and myself there are close to 125 showers with the Oxygenics, we love it.

A whole lot of us have done this.. Though I did not change the cut off valve (Reason below) I did change the head.. As you noted the water used is nearly identical but it is a much nicer shower.

The "Smart Pulse" Valve lets a little water flow even in the OFF position, Many threads on the forums complain "When I turn the shower head back on it is (pick one) {too hot} {too cold} this trickle it allows solves that problem.

The Reason I did not swap the valve is that my RV did not come with a cut off on the shower (Yes the salesman said there was one, but there was not) and the valve I purchased at Mennards (A competitor of Lowes and Home Depot) like the Smart pulse, lets a trickle through.. In fact, nearly exactly the same amount. So I did not change it.

Shower is nicer, spray pattern is smaller but shower is nicer.. I really like it. In my case the swap was simple, Unscrew the hose from the head, screw it back on (I have a "Telephone" type shower). (Telephone booth size too :( but the bark showers here are same size and fixed head so mine is nicer).

Thank you everyone for the opinions! I appreciate you taking the time
We decided to order the shower head and 1/4 turn valves.

I bought one because so many in the rv forums like them. I didn't like the spray pattern and I hated the cut-off. For some reason, cutting it off for a few seconds would cause the next surge of water to be cold. So, I've got a fairly expensive extra shower head I hope I never need to use.

To answer your question: YES. I have.. My Coach came with a hand held (Telephone type) Shower head so I just changed the head, everything else is the same.. NOTE. I did not use the Oxygenics "Smart Pluse" valve because... I had one already in the line that I installed years earlier.. Very happy with it.

Push button valves are much easier to use in the shower than turn valves. Been there, done that.....
