We just bought a Dometic/SeaLand 310. I think the model 300 was the one with several problems.

I like to install my pressure regulator on the campground hose bib so I don't over pressure the hose either. Also, it seems those cheap regulators go bad about once a year so I also use a pressure gauge so I can monitor it. I put the gauge on the trailer end of the hose.

Some people use an expensive adjustable regulator that is more reliable. I bought one once then left it on the hose bib at a campground. Since then I just make do with the cheap ones. If I leave it I haven't lost much.

I do the same. Curious news to me regarding the cheap regulators going bad. I have been using the same old brass pressure regulator (45PSI) since 1998. Never had a problem with, it still reduces the pressure. Though because it still works good, I don't bother looking at whats new and available in that department, so perhaps the 'cheap' ones you talk of are different.

I use the cheap ones as well, I did have one go bad it wouldn't allow any water to go through it. I tried to clear it but couldn't, cheap enough to go buy a new one intead of trying to re-engineer the old one.

You sure about this? My stock Shurflo onboard pump is rated/pumps it up to
55 psi.

Once again, proving that axiom of "it was always that way in the past." I was going off information I had routinely learned from past/other rigs . Upon further checking, I have learned even my rig has lines have max pressure 60PSI and I assume I have the same pump, as my pump maxes out at 55PSI.

The plumbing in my trailer says 100PSI @180 degrees and 145PSI @73 degrees. I don't plan on it ever getting that high.


I think most PX tubing carries the same ratings.


I don't know why I have such a high failure rate on the cheap regulators. Dirt in the water or something maybe. I just toss it and get a new one. I've actually had better luck with the plastic regulators than I have with the brass ones. Maybe they don't corrode as easily.

I have camped in parks that had 90 to 110psi. That's to much for my personal comfort without a regulator.

Here at my house, on the supply side of the whole house regulator, I have nearly 110 PSI most of the time. Peaks around 125PSI at times. When we bought the house about 4 years ago the old owners didn't even have a regulator. Guess they got lucky because they claim it never caused a problem. First thing I did was install one and set it at 40PSI.

I've also been in campgrounds with as little as 15PSI. I couldn't even get water to flow thru the regulator. I guess the pressure has to be above the pressure setting of the regulator to get anything out of it.
