How important is this...?

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01N7JZTYX...epyourdaydream

I have been enjoying my new-to-me 2016 RL20 for the past 4 months. What I've been doing is what I'd call RVing-lite. Staying in my rig for 2-4 days/wk approx 2hrs away from home as I'm working in a remote location. The park I'm in has me in a spot where I have electrical hook-up only and I use the public facilities which are cetainly suitable. Have not hooked up water or anything like that - basically like staying in a dry cabin, so to speak.

In a couple months, I will move to a new location and will have full hook ups and am getting prepared for that. Do I need this regulator with a guage on it or is this one sufficient:

Thank for your input.

That's the one I currently have, yes having a guage is better in terms what the pressure your getting but I have no issues with the one I have.

Yes, it reduces the incoming water pressure to your rig so that you don’t blow a water line or fitting.

My question is whether the gauge is important to have. I was certain that a regulator itself is a necessity.

Only issue with that one is your assuming that it's always working, with a guage one you can look at it and see if it's doing its job. Like I said I just have the regular one and it's fine for my use.

Over time I have ended up with three like the one you show. One is plastic and the others are brass. The only issue I have ever noticed with those type of pressure regulator is the volume of water is lacking. They work fine for us hooking up to water once or twice a year for a few days. I have read that this other type does not have that trouble as bad. I have never tried one. The time you spend in your TT you might want to look into it.

I'd say the gauge is a preference. I prefer a gauge so I know what the pressure actually is and that the regulator is working.

I currently have a Watts whole house regulator which is no longer available. When mine croaks, this is the one I plan to replace it with. I use separate water gauges.

I also have a couple of pressure regs like the one you show but I use one that I paid a little more for. It is adjustable and has a gauge. Like Duke I feel the adjustable has better flow. The little ones like you are eyeing will work but I think it leaves the shower a bit wimpy.

I've used this one for a few years. It's been great, and the important thing is there is still good FLOW after the pressure is reduced.
