Here are some pics of a recent shower and heater install I did on a V 205. Some the the things I i did and used are off the norm from what I have seen and so I offer these pics. Interest or ? just ask.

I like the shower head that u used. What do you use to control the temp of the shower? Also I'm wondering if factory showers have some sort of cold water supply tank?

The Whale twist shower is unique in that the hose is actually TWO hoses in one and the mixing valve is in the faucet handle (head) itself. Because I needed two pumps, one cold and one hot, I found the Mini Jabsco units that add up to more GPM and less $ than a single big Jabsco demand pump. It works very very well.
I now wish I had moved the pumps elsewhere to allow more room behind the panel for the hose to drop in.

I did some interesting things on the heater as well. The return hose from the core to the engine goes into a Y connection on the suck side of the S/w pump. The heater Co wants like 45$ for their fitting. Mercruiser has it for for 3.87$ I have the part number if needed.
The whole idea of this mod was to add a heater and hot / cold shower and not loose any significant storage. Not easy but done.

Nice job! I like it! I might look into adding that head unit and a second pump because my cold supply can't match my hot. For my heater was looking into that y fitting also but think I'm going to add a pump which will make for hot water even while idling an for a bit even when motor is off.

Works for that too but in WI it comes in real real handy for warming your hands up before during and after your set on those 43 air and water temp days!!!
