When they tell us they have high water pressure and we use a regulator it reduces the flow so much you can not fill a glass. Some one said maybe there is one built in to the rig. We have the 2004 38ft. Could there be one built in?

Cedar 41,
I moved your additional question about how much pressure is too much over here, instead of you having two different posts going on the same question.
With the amount of info you have given, my only thought is that your regulator is bad or you have it set to too low of a pressure. What type regulator do you have and what is it's age?
Mike

Cedar 41 also would like to know what is a correct pressure to use?
Mike

Moved from other post by Cedar 41 since it is a follow up question he has.

A regulator is built in to the Alpine. If you put one on the hose, you'll have two regulators in series which can completely shut off the water.

AHA! Our water pressure in the coach when hooked up to city water using our pressure regulator has been low. Thanks Steve we will have to stop using our pressure regulator. Should the build in regulator be changed out after five years or is there a way to clean and make the regulator like new??

HAWT- If you are using the in-line, hose-fitting type regulator, those can clog. I had one of the high dollar brass units shut off completely once due to clacium build-up inside; unscrewed it from the coach, w/full city pressure to it (about 70#) & it barely dripped.

I spoke to Rex at Alpine. Although the pump is regulated, the pressure regulator is required at least for 05.

For the full story on presssure regulators see my post of 06-16-2003 "Low water flow". My understanding is that for a 2004 Alpine you need to use an external regulator. You need to buy a "home type" regulator and set it at 50 PSI. See my post!!!

I checked my water input line yesterday and confirmed that it has a built-in regulator. Wonder why WRV eliminated them on '04s and later?

Steve,

They probably eliminated the regulator because they got tired of everyone complaining about low water pressure, you couldn't keep the kitchen sink sprayer on due to low pressure.
