Shower Modification

One of the first things I didn't like about my Voltage was the placement of the Shower Head. It really bugged me. So I moved it to what I think is a much more appreciate location. Now I have plenty of room to step into the water flow and back out of it.

We got these little wall hangers with water resistant 3M adhesive sticky backs to cover up the old screw holes from Wal-Mart.

We use them to hang a wash cloth or whatever. One of them holds the hose neatly out of the way. This mod is not for everybody but we like it.

That's a great idea. I changed my shower head with one from Camping World. It's called The Body Spa shower with Oxygenics . It gives you great water flow even when on the water pump and not hooked to a city water source.

I swear I think Dutchmen workers change things just to change them. Looking at your picture is totally different than mine from the factory. Where you put the hooks is exactly where my shower head is installed. Where your shower head is now located is where i mounted a shower rack from wally world. I got the type that hangs on the shower head and but one of the large command hooks on the wall and hung it from the hook. It also has two suction cups that hold it to the wall.
Thats a great job you did with yours. But again what is Dutchmen thinking when they mount these things.

Did the relocation of my shower-head yesterday, and took my first shower with it this morning. GREAT IDEA!!

It's kinda like the curved shower curtain rods that you might have in your home. You don't really have any more room in the shower than you did before... but the perceived area is much larger. I can actually turn around in that little 'phone-booth' now w/o bumping my shoulder into that thing.

So thanks again Steve for another great idea!!

Thanks Tom. I'm glad you like it. We sure enjoy the shower-head much better in the corner.

Shower reposition

Could you explain how you got the rod off the wall to move it? Thanks

The covered ends of the mount slide off to reveal access to a single screw that goes into the wall. Take a tiny flat screwdriver and wedge into the seam, and you'll see how it is.

I grasp the top/bottom portion of the rod assembly and slide the top portion out as shown.


My rod has two screws as shown.
