Agree with all that has been said, a regulator is a must. As for your silly question concern, I am on several forums, and your concern would be valid on some, but I have never once seen anyone "flamed" for asking a question on this board. We have the greatest people here! Welcome to the club.

To improve water flow rate, get an adjustable regulator, Valterra or Watts.

FrankAN,
Have the same motorhome only a '06 Holiday Rambler 30pdd.
We have our regulator inside the wet bay. Used it for a time on the inlet end of the hose outside but worried about someone borrowing it when we were away having fun.
Yours and our units are very close to the same so I might be able to answer certain questions you may have. They are great units and we are getting ready to retire and do some extensive traveling while we can. Just got back from Yellow Stone and plan on going back very soon.

Off topic, but my regulator and water softener are always exposed but no salty characters have ever showed up.
If worried, they can all be installed in bays.

I haven't used a water pressure regulator for over 9 months. Our pump usually puts out more pressure than any place we've been. In a year of traveling we just haven't encountered the overly high pressures that many people warn about.

Our favorite park pressure sometimes shows 120 psi (and yes, I do carry a pressure gauge) so a regulator is needed. On the Dutch Star I used a Watts inside the locked wet bay. On the Magna it's built in. Our one "problem" is that they only used " hose on the reel. It really should be ⅝" or " Guess I'll have to look into changing it someday. Just not real high on my priorities right now.

Pressure regulator, if needed, should go at the PARK END of the water hose, first item.. WHY.

Was chatting with an RVer and the park owner here at Cathead Creek (Well water, pump set for RV's so the pressure is fine without the regulator) and I mentioned a park I frequent where they state the pressure has been measured at 112 PSI (and they are not kidding I checked) .. Turns out the other RVer parked at the same park.

That's enough pressure to blow the ends off your water hose, and has on several RVers hoses.

Most cities it's around 80 PSI if you are on a city system.

I use a Watts or Zurin (I have both but my Watts is old and needs a rebuild) at the park end, these are 3/4 inch models with hose adapters.

Back when I used commercial in-line filters I set the Watts at liek 60-65 PSI and put a Sur-Flow in-line model betwen the filter and the RV but now that I use my home made high flow filter I no longer do that, also the Sur-Flo needs a rebuild kit (Age again) as well. All 3, Watts, Zurin and Sur-Flow can be tore down and re-built

The cheap regulators that are cylinders, about 3/4 inch by oh 4 inches with or without wings or bright colored grips on the female end.. leave them right where you find them (Shelf or hook in store) they are junk.
