Grab the Watts New Lead Free Adjustable 263A-LF Regulator. Set it to 50/55 psi and forget about it.
Thanks again for the info. So where do you mount/install this thing? Sorry for the probably obvious question but this is new to me.

Just install it right at the hose bib. Bib --> Watts --> hose --> filter (optional) --> coach.

UpNorth Thank you, I went to the forest River Forum and yes they are saying Ford announced a fix for the vibration. The fix sounds like the pinion angle was wrong, all that is needed is a wedge between the rear end and the leaf spring, will see.

Problem for me buying a 2015 is the towing capacity, I want 7500 not 5500, I tow a trailer to the Sturgis Rally every year.

Love this Forum so much good info here including water regulators etc.

Not to highjack this thread but, I changed to a Watts Lead free adjustable pressure regulator this season and what a difference over the high pressure non adjustable units in flow. The link above is the cheapest source I could find and where I purchased mine as well.

Vagabond, I read somewhere recently and probably here that the Ford E450 chassis has always been capable of towing 7500lbs. Jayco just had to get Ford to change the specs/nomenclature for the camper chassis which they now have done. I think you would be alright towing a trailer with a 2015.

That was me that Jayco told they could always pull 7500 lbs. The problem with that is if I did pull 7500 with a 2015 sticker of 5500 and had a warranty issue with the Ford chassis on the road the warranty could possibly be denied by Ford for being overloaded.

Who is to say what you pulled? Not like you're gonna show up to the Ford dealer with your trailer behind you.

Just sayin'.

I sure as heck wouldn't leave my trailer with 2 Harley's in it unattended in a parking lot somewhere or along the interstate. It is a 22 foot enclosed trailer.

In my post I did say if i was on the road.

Have you looked at a leftover 2015? Try an Internet search. Try Whitehorse RV in NJ also. I purchased a new 2015 at substantial savings and it does not have the issues of the 2016.

That's where I got mine too.
