If you add an external regulator, you will need to disembowel the existing built-in regulator.

Do your flow problems go away if you run the pressure pump from your on-board tanks and disconnect the shore supply?

I routinely use an adjustable regulator set to 60 psi. Any RV made in the last dozen or so years is pressure tested to at least 85 psi (some RV makers do 100). The old caution about a 45-50 psi limit has been obsolete for many years, but the myth persists.

No on board regulator in our rig that I know of. The pressure is fine when using the pump.

Water flow can be diminished by aerators not being cleaned often.

"Gary RVRoamer" is right about the pressure myth. Most PEC lines can handle 85 to 100 psi. Go to Camping World's website and type in water pumps and read the specs. The good quality ones provide 55psi.

I bought a good quality Watts regulator with a pressure gage and set it at 55psi. There are certain things you can go cheap on when RVing, but using a cheap regulator should not be one of them, unless you're willing to suffer through low water pressure.

You can see how I mounted mine. (I later changed the hose clamps to PEC clamps). On my coach, the water hose and reel is rated to 150 psi, so mine is mounted at the coach.

We dunk ours in CLR (or Zep brand equivalent). Amazing the junk that comes out. The shower head had some kind of inline restrictor on it. Removed that and the flow improved.
