Modification of shower head

I have a 96 t-2652 and I am considering moving the showerhead to the other side of the shower. Is there anyone that has considered this? Any suggestions would be helpful

I think that would be a little difficult to do and I wouldn't recommend it:

By moving the shower head to the other side, the water would spray onto the faucet, which isn't quite waterproof for direct spray. You could seal around it really good, but eventually, it could be a source for leaks and then rot.

If you were to do it, make sure to seal everything up really really well and leave the old brackets for the shower head if you can (so the holes stay covered/sealed).

Do you want to have the shower spray over the seat part and into the deeper part? I think you'd find that most campgrounds don't have sufficient water pressure to give you much water spray to that side.

I don't understand. How would it affect the water pressure?

It wouldn't affect the water pressure at all.

You have the split tub, right? So it has a deep bowl and then a shallower part toward the outside wall. It can act as a seat, but your actual shower floor where you can stand up in is only ~2'x2'.

Right now, your shower head sprays right on an edge wall to that 2x2' area. If you were to turn on your shower and stand in the bathroom to watch the water spray, I suspect the stream would make it to that shallower part of the shower/tub pan but not all the way to the opposing wall. If you were to mount the shower head opposite of where it is now, the same water pressure would have the stream of water barely making it to the deeper area where you can stand. So in order to make use of the water, you'd always have to pull the shower head off the stand and use it manually, or somehow move yourself around to get in contact with the water. Washing hair would be a challenge.

I would like to get the shower head away from the area where you stand. Right now the shower head is in the middle of the area where you stand, taking up some space. I am thinking I might go with PEX tubing. Any suggestions?

Would raising the head so you don't bump into it help? That way it would be out of the way when showering, you would only need to raise the hanger and seal the old screw holes.

Another suggestion, if moving the head is the solution, would be to extend the length of the hose to the shower head. Route the hose along the shower walls. That way the water supply can be on both sides, there would be no need for major surgery and a return to the "normal" position could be pretty easy.

Routing the shower hose along the wall has been thought about. That would be an easy fix. Thanks for the input.
