    if other people with the same heater,pipework and fittings are having the same problem then it's time to think about bypassing the stupid system and just drop a 'drop in' pump into a container of warm with a kettle of hoy and water, which can be drawn from your heater via a tap or mixed to suit . guaranteed to work
    and if your pressure is bad, a bigger shower head won't help - au contraire

    That what I say, a smaller one will give you a better time.

    Unless pump is at lest 80/100 psi and high volume lpm then of course it will never be as good as home unit.
    So ask about lpm when buying a pump,bit like a air compressor and cfm.

    that would give you a power shower !

    It would certainly clean the cracks and crevices!

    Our 2011 Campscout works fine.
    Is it raising the showerhead, or pulling it out, that causes a problem? If it's the former then I guess it's a pressure problem, but if it still dribbles when lowered to tray level it will be a kinking problem. I'm assuming here that it works fine as a tap when on sink.

    The problem is all about HEAD, now don't get all cranky, google WATER HEAD, and you'll understand what I mean.

    I am willing to bet that same shower head (no pun) will blow the gunge from under your toe nails if you're sitting on the loo and blasting them, but won't even drip on your head (no pun) some 5 or 6 ft higher.

    If so, your pump (irrespective of how many you have already had) is crap, you need a higher pressure pump to overcome the HEAD, the difference in height between the water level in your tank and your shower head (no pun)

    Simple really!!!!

    This is what we use in our shower - plenty of pressure and no complicated plumbing or electrics

    Pressure is fine as a tap but seems to weaken when you pull it out for a shower. When held over your head it's pushing a long way uphill I suppose.

    You do eventually get clean but it is a faff. Only bonus is big saving on water.

    I upgraded my pump when original died but no better.

    I know a chap with one who is a caravan/motorhome tech.and he hasn't been able to improve it.

    My last van was 2004 Autosleeper and was frankly poor, but the shower was great, so it's no excuse.

    I'm thinking along same lines as you re bigger shower head. I cycle a lot so really need my shower.

    I can help both of us here, being an engineer its easy for me!!!

    Stop cycling, this has 2 benefits, for both of us! One, you don't get in my way for f'in miles of narrow roads, Two, you don't then need the shower!!!!!
    Simples!!!!!
