Thor wouldn't have made them standard OEM in the Tuscany if they weren't a significant upgrade

The only downside is you might stay in the shower longer when not on city water

You need to put a timer the shower...

Having unlimited "hot" water when boondocking led to a couple problems, one being the lack of a timer on the shower!

I changed mine out last year and it made a great improvement in taking a shower. I bought the Oxygenics pure shower genius Power Massage model 88446 at Home Depot. It has 5 settings and works great. Took my oem one off and put it in the box on the shelf in my garage.

We have one and yes it's good. And would be even better if our on demand tankless hot water heater actually did give us instance hot water, and yes we have done all recommendations and suggestions on remedying that but we're wasting water and filling up grey tank to fast. I measured water before hot water stated and it was over 1/2 gallon in shower and a gallon of water in kitchen before hot water started. But I digress, our shower head pops out of its holder when traveling

Why is it a game changer? I am not familiar with this product.

Has anyone fixed the issue of nothing holding up the shower pan except the actual PV plumbing/elbow of the shower drain. Mine started leaking at the drain and I think it is because when I am in the shower the plastic moves when I shift my weight under my feet. Looked under shower pan and nothing is there. Thought about cutting some styrofoam because I don't think it would hold moisture to get moldy and it is light weight but fairly strong. Any suggestions?

Just installed this new showerhead. Used for the 1st time and it is a major difference between the stock one. Thanks for recommending this.

Had this shower head in previous motor homes and loved it, and since we boon dock a lot it saved on water also. But now we have the tankless water heater, will it work with those units since they need a good water flow to work?

And on the wasting water while waiting for hot water. We have a 5 GAL water container that we put the shower head into and run till we get hot water, also use it on the kitchen sink . When container gets full I just pump it back into the fresh water tank.

Yes it works on the thankless hot water heaters. I have the XG32 with thankless heater and it works fine. Great idea on the bucket while waiting for hot water.

Boondockers with tankless water heaters, please checkout Shower Miser, it's a 2 way valve that circulates water from shower head back to freshwater tank so water stays hot until your ready for it. It keeps the water temperature constant and doesn't fill grey tank. It does take some work to install but well worth it. It took wife and I about 4 hours to install,and $30. worth of pex pipe and shark bite fittings.

And again find myself agreeing with Bob and the rest of the Oxygenics fans. Two things I upgraded in my Compass was the shower head and the water dam on the edge of the shower stall both work very well

I'd say that "Greatt minds think alike"; but I'd never want to insult you like that.
Let's say that you smart guys figured it out... and I got really lucky!

Water Dam

I have put the Compass away for the year but here is a picture from the manufacturer that should give you an idea what it does. Basically it keeps any water in the pan and not on the floor. They are made for handicapped shower stalls so that a wheelchair can go over the lip of the shower opening.
As I mentioned its a great addition and keeps the floor dry but not cheap at $50 for a piece big enough for the shower in the Compass 23 TB

That looks like a pretty useful addition.
Do you happen to have a website address for where we can get them?

Water Dam

Bob: The company is called Grabberbars and I ordered directly from the them here in Canada but would think they would have a place in the US also.
If you google water dam by grabberbars it should get you there.
The thing we noticed that the MH does not have to be totally level and still keeps the water in the pan.
