Most RV water problems are caused by low flow rather than low pressure. Flow restrictors in shower heads, put there to satisfy federal regs, is one common problem, but skinny tubing and numerous elbows and valves in an RV system is another major cause of poor water flow volume. Up to a point, more pressure can help overcome these problems, but it's not a cure-all.

I use the Valterra adjustable PRV set at 50 psi. The flow regulators in the shower head are a mixed blessing, they restrict flow while hooked up to campground sewer and water, but when boon docking are valuable to help conserve water and grey tank capacity. I have no problem running out of hot water even with a rather long shower, largely due to the restrictor in the shower head.
