And I just ordered it. Thanks for your help everyone. I want to take good care of my new coach, and I want DW to have a pleasant experience in the shower w/ the tankless water heater.

That is the regulator I use. I also got the oil filled gauge option.

Ok. Great that you found it. Even better that the specs are there showing a low flow rate just as I expected and hinted to. Perfect!.

This series is ideal where a small economical package is required such as on special industrial process applications, miscellaneous plumbing applications and OEM equipment. Series LFH560 are suitable for water supply pressures up to 300psi(21 bar). The LFH560 features Lead Free* construction to comply with Lead Free* installation requirements.


LFH560 Lead Free* Mini Brass Water Pressure Regulators with Hose Connections, Water Pressure Reducing Valves - Small Capacity, Water Safety & Flow Control - Watts
I use this regulator...Watts New Lead Free Adjustable 263A-LF Regulator, but with 2 1/2" diameter
stainless steel oil filled 0-160 gauge with stainless steel exterior parts kit listed below installed, 4-4.5 gpmhttps://www.rvwaterfilterstore.com/i...dels%20003.JPG

There's good info on this website. If you call them they are extremely helpful. I also purchased my double water filter system from them. The single whole house filter I had with the "Filter it all" filter really cut down my water pressure. Macrosill can attest to that

If you live where it's cold don't forget to store the regulator with pressure gauge inside where it's warm or it'll be toast by spring.

I would be a bit leary of that. I have not seen a Watts regulator in that configuration before and the specs do not mention the flow rate. There are no reviews either.

I think you would be better off with a regulator from a reputable company that supports the RVing industry.
You are correct about flow rate. I had that unit and still keep it as a backup, but my primary unit now is the Watts 263A which allows greater flow. It is a bit pricey, but allows much greater flow and like all of the Watts units it can be re-built with a simple kit.

Hey guys, being that we're on the subject of water pressure I know that shower heads fall somewhere in there.

Taking a shower with the shower head that comes with the RV unit has a lot to be desired. Camping World has the "Body Spa shower Kit, White" on sale for $32.97 which is a decent price. But I found the Oxygenics Body Spa 26781 White Smart Pause RV Shower Head for $27.09 at

I'll be honest, I've showered more than a dozen times in our 2016 since we bought it 3 weeks ago, I think the shower head has great pressure; both from the fresh tank and city water.
