This is the one I have, sorry thought it was watts. After freezing it out do you think the only thing effected is the gauge portion? Like I said, it doesnt leak but not sure about any other parts in it.
It's probably OK as long as the housing didn't crack.

You should be able to pick up a new gauge at a plumbing supply house for a few $.

I would try it out before shelling out for a new unit.

If you put a non adjustable regulator in front of your hose, wouldn't that lower your psi to the 45 psi or so they do ????

I like the idea of going to 60psi too, but not sure the rv would like it

The Fairview pressure regulator I mentioned earlier sets the pressure at 55 PSI with full flow from the spigot! I love it!

I bought the Valterra 50-55 high flow regulator and love it. I had a cheap on from cw and it restricted flow to an unacceptable level. She gone....

Joe - Did you talk over the pro/con of going with he SS gauge? Yep, more expensive, but was wondering if when you talked with them if they gave you any opinions on if the SS was worth the extra cost as far as longer life expectancy?

I recall one thread where a poster had done the math, and decided he could swap out his two units 2 1/2 times for the cost of the SS. His concern was that if the SS needed repair, it's replacement costs were also more expensive.

And of course, going with a lower costing combo regulator and dial - he had less risk of one 'walking away' in a campground.

In that same thread, another poster stated he just bought a good quality bib regulator without dial. He said he just budgeted a replacement unit every 4-5 years, and did not bother with the dial.

OK. So I asked a question about your decision process on what you went with. And then I also shared some thoughts from other posters on another thread. (From awhile back, may have been Escapees forum.) So thoughts on these two gents opinions too please!

Best,
Smitty

I was too cheap to spend the extra money on the SS model! I definitely want the gauge to let me know if the regulator is doing it's job!

I have the same model. If froze while in south TX a few year ago. Gauge went bad and would not control pressure anymore. Replaced gauge. Found that a rubber diaphragm was bad inside regulator. Called Valterra. They do not have replacement parts for the regulator. But had a diaphragm from a regulator that they would send me. Got the new one and installed. Back to working good. I am now careful to protect regulator when temperatures get close to freezing.

Good tip on the freeze protection!

Joe - Understand the price point range thinking, and wanting to see that the pressure is good. (Of course, then you have the old worry on if the meter is reading right too. So then you need a second one to monitor the first one...!)

Thanks,
Smitty

Sorry, that was me who started that. See what happens when you fall in love with a Regulator. Nothing good can come from that.

That's OK, I guess there are worse things to fall in love with!
