Water Pressure

What psi do you guys regulate to?

There is a 40-50 psi regulator from Camco. There is a 50-55 regulator from Valtera. There are also adjustable regulators with a gauge (that cost much more).

Any feedback is appreciated. I have the Valtera one but I'm wondering if its too much PSI. I want to take extra care of my Jayco.

As long as you stay under 60 PSI you should be fine.

I use an adjustable regulator set to 50 PSI.

I set mine on 50. It's a Watts residential filter.

The set 40 to 50 psi unit is not enough to get a decent shower. I seriously doubt that they give you 40 psi. Had one and threw it away. The higher psi vaultera is the one that we have used for several years. We like it a lot. I bought it with the intention of getting an adjustable model. It worked so well that I dropped the need for anything else.

Adjustable set to 50, but it usually settles around 52-53.

I am going to get an adjustable with a gauge that is accurate. I have found you need atleast 50 for things to work right. I discovered those hose end ones are not that accurate and tend to lean on the 40# side...

Something like this?

Watts Water Pressure Regulator

I'm having trouble figuring out if I can use it. It seems much more stout than the Valterra version, but it says "Gauged version adjusts from 0 to 60 lbs. These valves are especially designed for units with self-contained water supply tanks"

????

The regulator itself is probably pretty good. Watts makes some good stuff.

However, I would disregard the description given. It was written by someone who has no idea how RV water systems work. This regulator has absolutely nothing to do with the on-board water tank.
