Thanks everyone. I'm due to replace the filter, so I'll do that this weekend along with cleaning the tap screens (I don't use the water pump at all) and removing the regulator. We'll see if it helps bring up the flow a bit.

Similar Situation Yesterday

I had a similar situation yesterday. Sunday night before bed we had good pressure, yesterday morning we had no pressure. Not less, none. I've always used a brass regulator. A little investigation revealed that the pressure regulator was completely blocked. After asking several others in the campground if they used one or if they've had issues not using one, I decided to go without it. I'll be picking up a gauge and another regulator soon though. The cost of both is miniscule compared to the cost of replacing plumbing components.

I have no financial interest in this store but I know many who have received good service on filters and water regulators for their rv's.

They offer pressure regulators that already have fittings to connect to your water hose.

Instead of replacing the filter AND removing the regulator, try one at a time to see what the issue is. Start with the filter, check the pressure, then the tap screens, check again, then the regulator.

Never know for sure if you don't.

Good luck!

Good idea!

As suggested, I replace the water filter and cleaned the screens first. No change. I then removed the pressure regulator, big difference in pressure. I then checked all the plumbing fittings throughout the rig for leaks. All looks good. I check them again periodically throughout the day. If all is well, I'll be going without the regulator. I do plan on picking up a gauge to actually measure how much pressure is coming into the camper.

Low pressure in cg's is the norm. Usually if a cg has abnormally high pressure they will notify you at check in. Some even caution you not to hook up without a regulator or offer to sell you one.

Don't take those warning to lightly. We have been in cg's that were close to the water supply that had upwards of 90 psi. You don't want that on your rv.

I spoke to CG management regarding the pressure. I was told the pressure is well within RV specs and that they spot check throughout the park regularly. They told me I was ok to go without a regulator. The pressure is great now without it. I can almost tell it's not excessive. As mentioned, I will pick up a pressure gauge this week and check it for myself next weekend.

So I connected a gauge directly to the spicket, then again via the regulator. Without the regulator, it's reads about 47 psi. With the regulator I get a reading of about 37 psi. Am I correct in assuming that the 47 psi without the regulator is a safe pressure level? Thanks!
