Water pressures over 45 is great, however under 20 degrees outside temperatures and your heat/water is not as hot/efficient, first look at turning down water regulator to 45 and below. I personally experienced the difference this cold winter. Otherwise higher pressures the rest of the year probably keeps all happier.

I've tested mine at various PSI's - I prefer 60 psi and that's where I live. Can't get it at all campgrounds.

I'd love to mount my pressure regulator in the coach behind the water reel too but you have to be careful if you are in a location requiring winterization. I've heard stories of pressure regulators cracking from a water freeze. And that line is not one that gets RV anti-freeze. So think it through...

It is very easy to connect the hose to compressed air and blow any water out of the hose and water pressure regulator.

With the regulator mounted in the flexible hose I canít imagine it cracking before the hose going.......but what do I know about freezing as I live in the SF Bay Area

That's a good solution.
