I purchased a valterra adjustable regulator with gauge from camping world, is that considered a cheap or low quality guage?

The Gauge I'm not sure of since I've never used that model

The Regulator.. Well assuming you have normal city water (80 PSI) and at least 1/2 inch (5/8 is better) hose.. If it's not holding pressure when water flows the regulator has an issue.

Now as for the gauge... While I can not vouch for the accuracy of ANY gauge, if it is working ... A decent regulator with 80 PSI city water or higher.. SHOULD NOT BUDGE when you turn out the outside shower to test. If it does.. Then the gauge works. but not the Regulator.

That should be fine, read my post #8 again. I don't think you have a problem, that pressure drop is likely inadequate plumbing.

I agree with post #8. I am a retired pipe fitter and do understand pressure and volume. Nothing wrong with your regulator.
