We are "fill the tank and use the pump" people too. Back when we would live in the RV for months in one spot we used the city connection and a regulator but now it's more trouble than it's worth.

But the OP asked about adjustable regulators and I was wondering why people would adjust their regulators and not just leave it set at say 50 psi. And if you don't adjust it why not use a fixed one? My fixed one served me for many years.

The reason I like the adjustable is.> Well the one I have has the VOLUME to let me shower if I wish to shower indoors.

But when you buy a pre-set what is it set for.> I suspect 45 PSI. and add the word "About" With the adjustable I hit 50. period.


Home is where I park it.

I bought a Watts N55B years ago from either Lowes or Home Depot and still works fine, but is no longer made. It had both internal 3/4 inch pipe threads as well as external very sharp union threads. I added pipe nipples and tees with gages on both the inlet and outlet so I could monitor both the incoming and outgoing pressures.

I also added male and female garden hose adapters. I added j hooks to the trailer I beams so I could hang it and the water filter under the trailer and out of the sun. I also can connect into the near by cold water low point drain instead of the city water connection so there is no hose hanging on the side of the trailer.

I just use this on the hose end and shut the water off when we aren't there or are sleeping.

But not sure if that's the kind you are all talking about as I see some are hard plumbed into the rv.

Finding it interesting that many campgrounds have high water pressure. I'm used to them being woefully low pressure.
