Small Wet Bay Upgrade

I've wanted to install a decent water pressure regulator on my coach since we bought it last November. We have low pressure, high pressure and pressures in between at the places we've been since owning the coach.

I purchased an adjustable pressure regulator and did my install today using a stand off to stabilize the apparatus on the face of the wet bay panel. I also added quick disconnect hose connections to make things easier when setting up or tearing down to leave. I know this isn't as fancy as some of the wet bay mods I have seen but it will be functional.

Consideration was made to permanently plumb a line to the black water clean out connection but I am really not wanting to cross contaminate my water supple. For now a separate hose will work fin.

Before



Test fitting



Stand off clamp



After



Now I need to clean the floor of the sewage discharge side of the wet bay. the PO didn't keep it tidy and I like to keep things really clean in that area.

I just completed mine a little while ago. There are many that get weirded out about cross contamination but with a check valve at the connection and another Vacuum Breaker in the rinse line under the sink plus a manual shutoff valve, I doubt there is any chance of backflow. Especially since there is zero back pressure from the rinse line.
I leave my fresh water hose connected to the Reg and coil the hose as shown. I have a plastic cap that I put on the hose when I disconnect from the pedestal to prevent anything getting into the hose.
After watching a fellow RVer remove his slinky and hold it up to the water tap to rinse it, I now carry a spray bottle of water/bleach solution that I use to spray the spigot before connecting to the pedestal. Now that, is what I would say is a cross contamination hazard.

Great job fellas, where did you get the valve? Looks like a good quality unit.

Regards,

I always spray the fresh water fawcwtt with straight bleach after watching a dog raise his leg and do his thing, the owner did not seem to care.

All fittings were sourced from my local Home Hardware store (Canadian version of ACE) in their Waterworks Department. I went with the PVC to avoid any hard water corrosion issues.
1/2" Threaded PVC Ball Valve, PVC 1/2" Barbed Hose fittings, 1/2" PVC Nipples, PVC, 1/2" NPT to standard garden hose fittings from the valves into the panel Inlet fittings.

Hey thanks Dennis. I should have been more specific (sorry). I was speaking specifically of the regulator valve with guage.

Regards
W.D.

Sorry, I thought you were referring to the PVC stuff.

The Reg is a Valtera. Fairly comon at RV Parts stores.

Thanks a million, I'm going to get me one of those. Somehow I hadn't seen it before.

Thanks again!

Don't forget you'll also need the 90 deg adaptor for the Inlet.

Do you also use a regulator at the spigot to protect the hose?

Oh this should get really interesting now. Before hose crowd vs after hose crowd.

My hose is rated at 150 lbs


so if I can get the regulator between the hose and the tank fill point (or if I put a "Y" after the regulator) I think I should be good. I do not know what the rating is on the little piece of hose coming off the hose reel on the right though.
