XX3. Use a basic regulator like the kind you can get at WW. Have witnessed CG's having water systems that seem to be unregulated allowing extremely high pressures as a means of supplying enough pressure when the CG is full. In any regard, regulator's are cheap insurance since blowing out a water line in the RV creates a big mess and a bigger $$.

That's just where it lives, then there's no way I can forget it. DW would NEVER forgive me if I busted a hose in her "chateau"!

The water pressure at our seasonal site is high so I always have a regulator on the water faucet end and buy a new one every year just to be safe. Would not be without one.

With us going to different parks all the time we have no idea what the pressure will be when we hookup. I'd rather be safe than sorry.

We do carry two with us, the dealer gave us one when we bought the trailer which is a standard one I guess. We also bought a high flow at Camping World which I really prefer along with the the Oxygenetics shower head.

Water regulator, water filter, L-fitting all hooked up to the hose and ready to go... Just went last weekend to a local state park.. Had more than enough pressure inside and the water filter made the water tasty...

When I die, I want to go peacefully like my grandfather did–in his sleep. Not yelling and screaming like the passengers in his car.

I bought all my potable water hose, filter, regulator from the RV Water Filter Store. The dual canister filter setup incorporates a Watts 263A adjustable 'whole house' regulator. Pricier setup, but have used it for going on 6 years, no problems and no problems with excessive pressure in either of the RV's we have owned.

Just built an adjustable one with parts from Lowes
Looking FWD to trying it out this weekend
Never used one in the past after reading threads here thought it would be a good idea
