water pressure

Somewhere there was some discussion of an adjustable water pressure regulator and for the life of me I cannot find it. So I'm looking for one of those that you can set for up to 65 rather than just the stock 45 that you see everywhere. Suggestions or a pointer to the thread?
Thanks!

Do a search on "Watts" and you'll find a lot of discussion. I love mine. You can pick them up at Home Depot or Lowes.

Thanks!
I just bought one from Hunter RV in Tulsa, OK. Cost $85 to $90. Has pressure gauge ans set screw for adjustment. Most RV places should be able to order.

Bought our Watts from Amazon.com....but the RV water filter store has a huge selection. The great thing about the Watts units is they are small but work very well.

You put them before the hose or in the bay? Up to now I've put my cheepy at the faucet before the hose in case the pressure was really high to protect the house also.

Protecting the hose too is certainly a good idea, but it varies where people put them.

Mine is mounted on my water softener along with PSI gauges on input and output. The unit sits tucked beneath an extended slide with an unprotected hose leading to the park water and a protected hose leading into the coach.

I bought a 200 psi hose from the people I linked in post #2 as I keep the 263a watts in the bay. It was costly ($50) but its a quality hose that will last a long time and its safe for drinking water.
