Unhappy Water hook up/regulator

I've been told by some to hook up the pressure regulator to the cg water outlet. Some say the regulator should be hooked to the tt/mh after the hose. Looking for your input.

Hey Tom - that has been batted around a couple of times here so you might search on pressure regulator. Here is one of those threads -- https://www.jaycoowners.com/showthrea...sure+regulator

Some like it at the spigot to protect the hose, others say that it should be at the inlet so the sun heating the hot water does not over pressure the system.

It is the old tomato tomoto (is that right spelling?? lol)

Thanks for the link.
Looks like most put their regulator on the cg outlet.
Good idea about shutting off if leaving for awhile.
I did get the 90 degree fitting for the side connection. Also saw that someone put in a Y conection with a short hose to bleed the line.

I always put a Y at the spigot and I have a short utility hose. I have an outside shower, but find the utility hose and sprayer are much more useful. I also use it to hook to my tank rinser when I am done (if I have sewer).

Water Pressure Regulator

Water pressure regulator is a must! Especially if at a campground with surge pumps that put out a lot of water pressure and the regulator should go on the campground spigot. Add a Y fitting so you can hook up a second water line for numerous reasons (black tank spray cleaner, wash vehicle or rv if allowed, etc.). Do not use second hose for your fresh water supply to rv. Should use same hose for fresh water and be sure to keep it clean and don't let it touch ground.

I don't worry about the hose being in the sun at home, I'm not going to be anal about in the CG either. Besides, we crack the water often enough to relieve any pressure on the hose.The regulator goes on a Y at the spigot with a utility hose on the other side that also flushes my black tank.

I use a Watts regulator, adjusted it one time and don't worry about it. The 90 degree adapter on the trailer end is a big help also. A hose won't stay connected to my trailer if I don't use it. Cheap plastic.

The Watts worked great. I put QD's on the regulator and hose. Took 30 sec's to hook up water.

Thumbs up

Tom: I suggest you also install the cone screen type washers used on clothes washer inlets. You can buy them at Home Depot, Lowe's, etc. Some have very small screen mesh versus the others with larger mesh. The reason for use is to avoid various small rock, shale pieces, etc. which commonly originate from a well water source. Obviously, numerous rural campgrounds have on-site wells for their source of water.

I once owned a fifth wheel with three tanks and each had a separate tank sprayer. Due to the absence of the recommended screen washers, I packed stone. shale pieces, etc. into the spray head orifices and clogged them closed. The trailer bottom was enclosed in metal and after "guessing" where the spray heads were on each tank, I had to open the tin up and luckily found the spray head. Then took it off and confirmed that the spray orifices were clogged closed with rock, etc. This was a very time consuming venture and somewhat destructive to the under belly. All, because I did not use the cheap screen washers. Lesson learned and now I carry spare washers. Your use of the quick connectors is wise.

Sounds like you are enjoying the 29D. The issue with the satellite is strange! Maybe Jayco misinterpreted the federal rules? Why would they sell an in-motion dish, if they wire it not to be used in-motion! I am monitoring this issue and interested in you gaining use of the satellite while "in-motion."

My regulator has the screen you described. Also going to put an in-line filter on the hose.

The tv saga continues. Received the dish network receiver today. Will work on that this weekend.

Jayco says the rear tv can be watched in-motion but not the front. Who knows! The driver can't see either tv so I see no difference.
