Default Rodger's - Replace the shower head with kitchen sink sprayer

Rodger has an excellent explanation of how to replace the shower head with a kitchen sink sprayer here:

myroadtrek.homestead.com/ShowerHead.html Note: Rodger retired his MyRoadtrek website. See post below this for photos.

He lists the parts that you need as:
One female 1/2" to 1/4" Brass Reducer.
One male 1/4 Brass Pipe Nipple.
One kitchen sink sprayer.
Teflon pipe tape.

He also notes that in some cases "the nylon/plastic hose bib on the faucet can be unscrewed, and sink sprayers are available that have a 1/8" male end, which will screw right into the faucet. No adapters needed".

As most of you know Rodger retired his MyRoadtrek website a few months ago. He gave me permission to repost some of his modifications here on Class B Forum.
Replacing the shower head with kitchen sink sprayer was great idea. I have used it on 4 RV's now

Shower Head

I hated the stock shower head that couldn't be completely shut off, so I decided to replace it with a kitchen sink sprayer. This is something I have been wanting to do for about 3 years, and I finally got to it.

This is what you will need.
One female 1/2" to 1/4" Brass Reducer.
One male 1/4 Brass Pipe Nipple.
One kitchen sink sprayer.
Teflon pipe tape.

The Brass Reducer goes on a little hard because it takes a bigger bite out of the nylon faucet hose bib, but it does go on. You may need to hold the round piece above the threads on the hose bib in order to tighten the Brass Reducer.
Make sure you use a couple wraps of Teflon tape on all the threads, or you will have leaks.

As you can see it stows quite well on the old shower head hook.

Update

A member of RV.Net has informed me that the nylon/plastic hose bib on the faucet can be unscrewed, and sink sprayers are available that have a 1/8" male end, which will screw right into the faucet. No adapters needed.
I couldn't find a sprayer with the 1/8" end, so I did it using the adapters.

I took this idea outside..... I do like the shower head in our LT Van and we use it more than I ever thought we would. But.... There is a outside compartment with another shower head that I just adapted to a sink sprayer. Great idea and now it is much more useful and convenient. Gotta love this place
