Yes: They are "Oxygenically" good!
I've put them in both of my RVs.

This is just another example where the manufacturer could have spend $15 more bucks and delighted their customers. The stock shower is non functional in my opinion.

"non-functional"?
It still got my butt wet: this one just does a better job of it!

I have never before agreed with the:
'If the dealer had included the $4,000 TV no one would complain'
posts.

But
The not quite right wifi thing they now build in to Thor's had to be a marketing agreement at little cost to thor.

I think the shower head maker would be abject fools if they didn't supply those heads for free to thor.
If Thor builds 10,000 units a year (I haven't the slightest clue) and you take the shipping and packaging out of the cost of the shower heads....
The $5 or so net cost of the actual product becomes the best $50,000 the shower head company ever spent.
Write-off, customer for life, Thor people bragging of the fancy shower head...shoppers on lots comparing the neat 'thor exclusive' shower head against the shower head Ina $100,000 higher priced builder....
Saless volumes up for the shower guys, stock yearly's reflect this, prototype money comes rolling in, new product developed.

Both Thor and the shower head company just aren't thinking clearly on this collaboration.

Let's not even get started with the opportunities lost by not upgrading the toilet paper holder...

I also installed this and did one more small mod. I took a 5/16 drill bit and drilled out the grommet that is exiting the feed line in the shower outlet. When you change out the shower hose, look to see if the hole feeding the mixer is at least 1/4 in or larger.

Thanks for sharing. I am going to order one for my coach. Had not even heard about this before.

Funny, the first thing I've done for years with a new to me TT or MH is install an oxygenics shower head. It is a game changer.

Interesting! I have, on occasion, looked at the joint between the shower hose and the main body and marveled at how small that is. Iím used to seeing a hose just go straight into itís connection, not be reduced to a pencil-sized tube first. That tiny connector wouldnít last a day with my familyís use, if the hose wasnít secured with that restriction ring mounted on the shower wall a foot above.

Could you elaborate on what you did? Did you hollow out that connection more, replace it, etc?

Obviously, more water throughput means better shower experience, but quicker drain on the tanks (which arguably defeats the purpose of moving to a low flow shower head). But since itís rare for us to RV without a water hookup, Iíd seriously consider doing something like this.

Tuscany came OEM with oxygenics

Changed to their larger model with a valve and longer hose to make it easier to give the Westie a bath after a couple years

Dogs like the pulsating water also

We have 5 gpm units in the sticks and bricks so wanted the effect without the volume

I tend to buy too much stuff for my RV and boats, usually at the recommendation from groups like this. However, I've seen raves about this shower head for years and can't imagine how different it could be to be worth $50+. I've added it to my shopping cart yet again, but I think it will then be delegated save for later pile.

Once you DO get one: you'll be upset with yourself for not buying it sooner.

We are all the same! My "save for later" cart is loaded with RV stuff!!? Lol.

Move this one to the top of the list, you will not regret it.
