proper hookup of city water

If I have a pressure regulator and a water filter, what is the correct order to hook them all up? Thanks.

Everybody has an opinion on this but I do it this way.

Campground spigot -> pressure regulator -> in line water filter -> white water hose -> camper

Some put the filter between the hose and camper.

Yep...lots of opinions.....

I happen to put my regulator at the camper but not sure it matters. I was told once that a hose lying in the hot sun can build up pressure so you want the regulator last.....will that cheap regulator protect the slow static buildup like that - probably not.

I always hook my regulator up to the CG spigot first, this way my hose is also protected.

After you camp at a campground with about 150# water pressure and you blow off the ends of your hose, you will start attaching the regulator so that it also protects your hose.

This is also the way I connect. I blew a hole in a hose once so I like to protect it now. I added a brass elbow at the camper so the hose hangs straight down.

I added a quick disconnect, hate getting my fingers around that female connector on the TT and turning it, always was a pain.
And yes, regulator before hose. Filter should go last in case creepies are in your hose.

Regulator, short hose, filters, longer hose, trailer. I don't like the weight of the regulator hanging on the plastic plumbing of the trailer.

When we spend the winter in Az we use the following. Regulator, short hose, filters, RO water filters, small hose to water tank in trailer.
