Here are a bunch of photo's taken of my water supply system. You will see in the first photo an overview of the entire system, then a few closeup photo's starting with the Watts Adjustable water pressure regulator, a house size water filter, a Travel-Soft Water Softener with a Watts water pressure gauge. You will see that I have stainless steel reinforced 6 ft. water lines running between each device. One from the pressure regulator over to the filter, one from the filter over to the softener, and one from the softener over to the entrance to the bottom of the service bay. The house water filter normally has a black plastic waste basket over the top of it protecting it from the Sun as seen in the last photo in the lower left hand corner, otherwise the filter would get clogged with algae quickly. I have also included some photo's of my service bay showing the semi-permanent brass piping I have installed to make back flushing the Black Tank easier. Then there is one showing the anti-wind paper towel holder in position. Here in Valencia we have Santa Ana Winds that can get up to 60mph or more. When the door is open, the wind makes a mess of the paper towel roll. The last one is showing my power pedestal and locked Surge Protector.

Anyway, I hope some people will gleam some useful information from these photo's or possibly have some questions that I can answer.

Happy Holidays to All!

I got most of my hoses at either Camping world or General RV. They are several years old and are just standard RV-drinking water hoses. Now.. there is one thing I do differently.. Depending on where I"m parked

Where I'm parked just now there is a warning on the park map. "High water pressure, use regulator" I actually use TWO regulators at a park such as this (Oh, it's 80PSI by measurement)

The first. hooked to the water bib, is set to sixty PSI, it's a watts unit.

This protects the hose and filter

The second, at the inlet to the rig, is a Sure Flow in-line model (This is identicla to the sure flow inlet model save that it has a male hose fitting attached to it's outlet.. the regulator however is identical)

That one is about 45 PSI and protects the motor home.

If I'm in a park where line pressure is 60 or less. I skip the watts

Hi John,

It is best to check park pressure at 2AM when few are using water. There can be some noticeable difference.

Richard,

You've been holding out on us... you didn't mention the rolling pin 'til now!

I hope you never have to pack up & leave in a hurry!

Seriously, thanks for the photos; they are very informative.

Bob

Since we are in "Fire Country", I have left in somewhat of a hurry, but usually just taking the coach to the ocean for a day or two to get away from the smoke, no real fire danger, so far. The place where I go, you are there with no services, so I just leave everything at my "Home Site" with neighbors & staff watching over what's left.

Normally, it takes me a couple of hours to buckle up the entire coach for travel, inside and out, and that's due to the amount of "Stuff" we use on a daily basis inside and out. It's R HOME, so imagine taking your home on wheels.

The rolling pin is totally mine, bought it myself, and the wife is from Thailand so she has no purpose for one, well at least up till now . Love her Thai cooking!
