Dealers surprise me every day with some of the goofy stuff the say.
Yes. I had a dealer service technicians at Camping World the other day tell me that tongue weight is measured WITH THE SPRING BARS SET IN POSITION. I wanted to be sure I heard this right so I asked if he meant with the spring bars disconnected. He said , no, you want them connected when you measure tongue weight.

REALLY NOW..

We use an adjustable regulator just because of the varieties of water mains we deal with. We have a gauge at the regulator, before water filter and after water filter, all being outside. That said, we still keep it around 40 psi.

"Maybe" the lines are tested at 120# but I doubt they do that with faucets and toilet hooked up. As quick as these things are built I doubt the 120 story. My first (an HTT) leaked at the filter bypass under the sink.
IMHO, use a regulator and watch for drips.

Yeah, you gotta' watch those dealer service techs. I'm sure some are very knowledgeable and know RVs inside and out but some of them were making coffee a Starbucks last week. Problem is being able to tell who's who.
