Water Pressure

Does anyone know what is the maximum water pressure these rigs can handle? (see signature for model of rig etc.) I've search everywhere and can't find an answer. Thanks.

Most, myself included, set the regulator for 50-60 PSI and have had no problems. A quality regulator is less than $100 and is cheap insurance against a flooded trailer.

I was told by my dealer that the system was supposed to be rated at 80-100 psi, but I never trusted that opinion! I always check the pressure before hooking up to water and use a regulator if the pressure exceeds 60 psi.

I always use my regulator regardless of the tested park pressure. I have actually watched the pressure fluctuate from 30-85 while I was watching it so one test on arrival doesn't necessarily indicate that the pressure won't change.

Same here, keep it set at 50psi. No use in having to make the decision each time. It is part of the setup routine.

I have my Watts Regulator set at 55 psi, the same setting as my ShurFlo pump. No problems yet. Again as mentioned above, using a regulator takes the guess work out of the water pressure question.

We always use the onboard pump, only using CG water to refill the tank. No issues.
