City Water pressure limit

I have a 2015 32BHDS (which my wife & I love by the way) and I am having a little trouble coming up with a water pressure number. I have an adjustable water pressure regulator but I don't know what psi it should be set to. It defaults to 45psi but is that where I should leave it? I can't seem to find a published number anywhere. Thoughts?

My regulator is 50 PSI (hose-end one, not adjustable). It is definitely better than the first one I bought the day I bought the trailer which was 40 PSI. IIRC, the recommended PSI is not to exceed 60, but I can't remember where I read that... sorry

City Water pressure limit

50 psi is what most are set for. I use an adjustable Watts and I set it and forget it.
It is reckless to not have some kind of regulator. We have camped where the city water pressure was over 90 psi.

My Watts adjustable is set at 52 psi. I was tweaking it trying to hit 50 psi exactly and 52 psi was close enough.

I would think that 40 to 50 lbs would be sufficient.

I blew out some lines in my RV when I forgot the pressure regular just once. Definitely need one. Now it is set at 50.

I stay between 45-50. That seems to be enough to keep a nice flow and not worry about hurting anything.

I am new to the TT camping; however, I purchased an inexpensive in-line regulator from Camco that regulates at around 45 psi. By the time I connect the regulator and the water filter, it works fine for sink, shower and toilet water.

You don't have problems when water is flowing, You have problems when the water is not flowing. Filters may cut down flow but you can bet when the taps are all off the pressure will build.

So what is your answer? Obviously you are not going to disconnect in between usage; therefore, the only thing it seems you can do is have a pressure regulator where the water enters the TT.
