water regulators

Hi all,

Heading to a private campground next weekend, first time we have ever done so. It seems all our favorite state CG's are booked next weekend, so we found this place that actually seems pretty cool (White River RV & Campground, MI).

However, I've never used the city water connection before. I have a regulator I bought and am going to by the inline filter this week as well. I tried out the regulator with our garden hose this weekend by attaching it to the camper then to the hose. I notice that the toilet was still spitting out water instead of having a nice flow (the sinks were fine). Did I hook it up the wrong way? Will the inline filter make a bigger difference? I pretty much had to get a towel to wipe up the walls in the bathroom!!

A lot of folks recommend putting the regulator on the faucet end of the hose to protect the hose from overpressure as well. I would also think the the slight elasticity of the hose may help absorb pressure pulses.

Never thought of that. I'm going to try this next time out.

Worst case you could use the city water to keep you tank topped off and then disconnect.
