I use the Valterra Hi-flow water regulator attached to the faucet of the RV park. It allows 50 - 55 lbs of pressure to flow to my coach. Is this a problem...?

You are OK. Anything under sixty pounds is in operational limits. We were dealers for Fleetwood, Allegro,Gulfstream,and several other brands. They all said sixty pounds PSI water pressure was well within design limits. I also use the ten dollar brass regulator. I like to use a pair of pliers to install it to the hose, to make theft a little harder. It also keeps you from taking the hose loose and leaving the regulator on the faucet.

I use the Johnson Pump Water Pressure Regulator Model # 12869582 from West Marine. It is set for 45 psi. I attach it at the shore water connection.

I bought a regulator, but as I was about to take it out of the package, I noticed it said not recommended for older RV's. It was set for 55. Why would they restrict it to newer RV's? Better plumbing, stronger connections??

You answered your own question. We had a popup and returned to the campground one day to discover water running out the door. They had used water hose and worm clamps to attach the water lines to the fold over sink. the water pressure had blown the water hose off and flooded the camper. The water system in RV's has been much improved in the last fifteen or so years.

Hijack here...My neighbor came back last night to find his clothes washer valve did not shut off, opened the front door of his DP and almost got hit with a wave of water. Had to empty every basement bin, entire main floor was flooded. Not pretty.

Regulators are very simple devices, they all work with a diaphragm and a spring. The spring deflects the diaphram unseating the seal that allows water to flow. once the pressure on the other side of the diaphragm over powers the spring, it deflects the diaphragm back, reseals it cutting off flow. I use the tiny simple flow through one that's factory set to 45 PSI and I'm good.

For those of you truly concerned about water, here's a tip, turn you water off from the outside!

Nothing will save you if a fitting inside your MH splits or a hose pops off of a connector due to the fatigue of over the road travel when you're away for the day. I have a shutoff valve outside right at the city water connection, when I leave for the day the water is off!
