I am sure this has been addressed in the past as it is so basic, but I have not found it. Does anyone know the pressure limit that WRV constructs its water system to handle? I would expect there is a normal (day to day) and an overshoot safety limit. Using the 45psi resrictors (sold at Camping World) actually shows meter pressure of 30psi or less. Faucetts trickle; using the onboard sureflow pump provides a marked improvement in flow so obviously that pump is above the restrictor limit. Appreciate any info; lawyers do not shower so they are no help.

Hello SkyGuy:

That is a question that we have all wondered about. It has been discussed before and it is felt that the Alpine water pressure could reach about 100 psi without any problems. Some of the older coaches had pressure regulators installed at the factory. If your Alpine already has a regulator a second one will really cut down the pressure into the coach.

Here's a fairly full discussion of water pressure issues.
