You want water pressure? We stayed in an older RV park about (3) yrs ago in Evanston,Wy. As I was standing at the check-in desk, I observed a sign on the wall that stated something to the effect; "The water pressure in this park is 110 psi-believe it". Needless to say, we used our regulator as usual. Now back to regular posting.

It works great!

FYI, have seen 100 psi or more at many parks across the country this year. One of them at 125. Some folks had "issues" as a result, all with rigs over 8 years old. They all had restrictor tube "regulators".

Thanks y'all

Thanks for the update. What was your successful recipe ? All night in vinegar ? Fully submerged ( gage and all )?

Maybe he only shares details with mutants.

Removed it, put a screw-in plug in one end, poured vinegar in the open end, stood it in a time-out corner for being such a naughty boy. Left it overnight.

Pretty much easy-peasy.

It was creeping up to CG pressure in about 45 mins. Has been a steady 45 psi for 5 hours.

I think this case is firm proof that the water pressure in any system will equalize to the pressure of the source without a valved pressure regulator.

My regulator valve was prevented from closing at the pre-set pressure value by an extremely miniscule piece of grit. After a time, the entire system was a bit over 100 psi.

So, get a true regulator, but look at the guage from time to time.

Although it is nice to know my system can handle 100+ psi, I hope it is not "tested" again.

Vinegar can be quite aggressive .... 50/50 is usually strong enough. I use this stuff on my scuba equipment and it works great on lots of other equipment that has salt or "salt-like" deposits.

BTW....to complete the story, here is how I controlled the excess pressure.

Being an avid procrastinator, I put off cleaning the reg for a while.
To avoid any issues, I hung the wet bay shower nozzel out the power/water hole and cracked the cold faucet open so 1 drop per second hit the ground. Did the trick.

Checked your pressure recently? :-)

I just bought a new Valterra pressure regulator with gauge from CW. This is just the standard regulator, not the higher priced adjustable ones. Is there any problem with using this type as long as I check the gauge from time to time?

I think it should be fine. looked at it online. Good reviews.
I expect it uses the same principles.

I bought a Watts based on suggestions here. Feel much more comfortable now with a steady 40 PSI.
