Joe are you still in the dog house? I was doing some homework on water pressure regulators when I came across this old thread...

Menards carries gauges. You should be able to match it up there. Or Farm&Fleet.

Thumbs down Water Filter?

Looking at your setup, while brewing beer with some friends, they had setup an Omni Whole House filter connected to a water hose. Used it with one of the carbon filters to get rid of chlorine. That would allow easy, inexpensive changing to one of several types of filter also without loosing munch in the way of pressure. I'd think about putting it upstream of the regulator. Thoughts?

Sorry, don't know anything about the Omni filter system!

Omni Water Filter

One of these, picture is from the Menards web site. Should be able to buy them at Home Depot, Lowes, etc. Menards price $30 for the housing and a basic filter. Replacement filters run from $2 -$20 depending on capability. They go from a basic sand/grit up thru activated carbon. I have one in my house that all water goes thru. Filter has a life of about 3 months.

UPDATE- A little while ago we had a good rain while using the regulator and pressure gauge. After the rain I was outside and noticed that the pressure gauge was about 1/4 full of water!

I just remembered to call the RV Water Filter Store about this. They told me that the lowest cost gauge which I had bought was not waterproof and should only be used inside the compartment. They did say that the water would not damage it unless it froze. I will just put it at the freshwater inlet inside the wet bay. I guess that's really not a problem, but it would have been nice if they had told me that before I bought it!

They do have one that's waterproof, but more expensive!

FWIW when buying this pressure regulator alway shop Camping World's price, I find them anywhere from $10 to $30 more expensive than other sources, i.e. Amazon, Water Filter Store, etc...

https://www.amazon.com/Valterra-A01-...sure+regulator

As a rule I only use CW for research, I stop in look at what I want, sometimes I just need to see it in person, then check Amazon and others from my phone on price. CW is never the low price option.

So what pressure should we really be limiting to? I thought it was 40psi. Can I go higher?

Yes, you can definitely go higher! We like the higher pressure when taking a shower. It's whatever you are happy with! I love the 55 PSI! There's no risk to your plumbing as long as you're in the 50-60 PSI range. Of course, many campgrounds have low water pressure anyway!

I'm considering the Watts regulator, mounted in my wet compartment. What procedure do you guys use for winterizing the regulator? I would imagine that if it were loose you could either shake it out or take it in the house but I would prefer to mount it in a compartment.

When you have no flow for some time the pressure will creep up if the temperature rises. The regulator typically has no way to relieve the excess pressure.
