I only turn on the faucet a quarter turn, but the faucet is next to the 2 year old grandson's yard toy bin. He is fascinated by the hookups that cross the back yard.
It will work at either end. In fact if you want to protect your RV hose from over pressure then putting your regulator at the tap is better for the equipment.


Oops should have read the rest of the posts before responding.

Good morning mutants. My cousin is coming out to visit today. We will see our friends on the 3rd - and have changed plans to stay here at Sunflower for a week. We got our stay in Eloy changed to come in 2 days early so all is grand on the rainbow.

My cousin hurt his foot so no fishing - and the park we are in is actually closer to his house than the lake. So that works to our advantage too.

One downside to this park is Air Force fly overs - but takes me back to my youth. There was no sign of them since we checked in Wed. But they have been burning up the fuel this morning.

Have a great day mutants!

He is always supervised and he's told repeatedly not to play with the hose and powercord, but he's a very active 2 year old. Luckily both ends of the power line is behind a locked door and I fashioned a protective box over the point where the extension cord connects. What I worry about is him turning the water faucet on too high and blowing another water hose.

Yuma has some jet jockeys that noise it up during the day. At the Arizona Marketplace you can see their faces as they land with open canopies. I salute em!
Happy Trails Bro and Sis

Barb I often connect a y connection at the water supply hose bib, then place my pressure regulator on one side and attach my MH supply line to it. The other side of the y I attach a water hose for washing car, MH or spray anything that bothers me! Hum, ha Wayne
Also as Dave said before, pressure remains the same regardless of how much you turn on the faucet. It just takes a little longer to reach that pressure when slightly opened.

Woot! I bet there was some guffaws happening there, Bro!
We have "caught up" (well, kinda) with several friends and relatives we also had not seen for what seems like eons. Grand times fer sher, and all due to this lifestyle.
We are off to Yuma in the AM. +10 warmer at nite. More tweeks and upgrades to Gwen will happen there.
So, STMs, how many of you had a phone like this? Our "ring" was two longs and a short. And, yes, EVERYONE listened in. The wagging tongues of idle gossip were rampant even then! My Gramma would seed their brains with a few half-truths!

The "swimming pool" POS awning will be augmented with something useful: a regular awning on the PS front slide. Some LED upgrades to fluorescents, a new door handle, etc. nothing $ breaking. Just nifty stuff!

Speaking of party lines I have a cute country story for y'all.

In the late 60s my then wife and I were planning a trip to Niagara Falls in Southern Ontario from the farming community of Desbarats in Northern Ontario. All the planning with visits to relatives etc was handled via the party line phones.

When it was time to depart we headed west to Sault Ste Marie to cross over to Michigan to take the short cut to the south down I-75 and back east on M-69. We got to the Sault only to learn that my aunt's mother had had a heart attack so the trip had to be cancelled because they would be in Kingston visiting with my aunt's sick mother.

Needless to say we made and took off to newer plans and horizons for the next few weeks. When we returned home in three weeks time we were totally astonished with the story in the Bruce Mines Chronicle (local newspaper) extolling to all and sundry the wonderful vacation that the Dalla-Vicenza's in Desbarats had just taken in Niagara Falls.

It was one of our favorite happenings in our farming adventure because we had never spoken to anyone about the trip because we were new to the areas and didn't know any of our neighbours.
