Water pressure

Hello. I just bought a 2020 whitehawk 29bh. I just had my well installed where my camper is parked permanently at my property. Psi from the well ranges between 40 and 55 pounds and runs through 25 feet of pipe and then a 50 foot garden hose before entering the trailer. Is this pressure range safe for my camper plumbing? Thank you

55 psi, yes. Do you have an expansion tank in the well system? Pressure spikes could cause issues.

That tank works as a reservoir to keep the pump from cycling every time you open a faucet, it also has an air chamber in it. As long as it is your home system and you are monitoring/maintaining it periodically, you should be good.

It is my homes system. To be on the safe side I would use a pressure regulator at the camper. what range is good 40 to 50 psi? And will there be a significant loss in water with the regulator?

We use a variable regulator and set it to 35 to 40 psig. That works pretty well for the shower and dish sink.

We like our adjustable regulator set at 50 psi. Works very well for us.
