Well, in theory any of the following,, Though I do not like the smallest size in any of these classes, I would go with a 3/4 inch unit or perhaps a 1/2

LFH560 Lead Free* Mini Brass Water Pressure Regulators with Hose Connections, Water Pressure Reducing Valves - Small Capacity, Water Safety & Flow Control - Watts

LF26A Lead Free* Small Pressure Regulators, 2-Way, Water Pressure Reducing Valves - Small Capacity, Water Safety & Flow Control - Watts

This is the one I had or I think it was:

LF123LP Lead Free* Low Water Pressure Reducing Valves, Water Pressure Reducing Valves - Small Capacity, Water Safety & Flow Control - Watts

Yup ... I bought a Watts like yours ... with all the fittings attached. Mine is attached to a water filter and is in a container similar to this (holes drilled for connections). It's goin' with me to the next RV

I carry a Watts "whole house" regulator but rarely use it. I do have a pressure gauge on my standard water line hook-up so I am aware of the park pressure.

My regulator is attached to the water filter so I'm inclined to always use it. Bigger issue for me is I still have a bunch of Polybutyl so I hold the pressure at 40psi.

I use an adjustable regulator but I attach it to the source to save hoses and don't forget it when leaving.

I'm confused! I didn't know there was a regulator that just controls "flow"! I have been using the one below for years. Other than not being able to adjust the pressure, why is the Watts any better?

The type you referenced controls pressure by also reducing flow. The Watts type controls pressure without reducing flow.

I've had two of these and they both leaked without any way to tighten. If you look closely directly below the guage you can see some plumbers tape(white)sticking out at the bottom. That's where they both leaked. The first one, I tried to give it a turn, and all I accomplished was twisting it off. The 2nd I unscrewed it and put 4 layers of plumbers tape but it still leaked. So I put my old un-guaged one back. I haven't given up though, I'm going to find a plumbing supply place and see what they suggest.

You might try Pipe Dope instead of tape. I usually have better success on metal fittings when I use dope.

This unit, which I started with, regulates flow.....but not water pressure.....



As extra insurance we also turn the water off at the tap when we leave the rig.
