Water Pressure Reg inside Wet Bay?

Weíre looking for some guidance on where/how to install the water pressure regulator inside the wet bay. Our 2015 Ventana 3636 does not have a dual filter setup (house carbon filter with sediment filter), nor the regulator installed in the wet bay. I remember seeing a post on here with pics of the regulator and sediment filter installed in the wet bay, but I canít find it now.
Currently, we have the regulator on the CG faucet bib, then the sediment filter, then water softener, then hooked up to the house water hose, etc.
We want to at least have the regulator inside the heated wet bay, so we donít have to keep removing the regulator from the faucet bib when it freezes overnight.
Thanks!

When we bought our very first travel trailer the gentleman who went through the delivery was very knowledgeable and experienced in RV's.

He suggested always hooking up the regulator to the hose bib. His reasoning was and I agree, if there is excessive pressure it would be better to regulate that at the hose bib and not subject a hose to it.

We have never had a hose leak but have seen a few over the years.

If it's going to freeze we just fill the FW tank and stow the hose.

I have never had a problem with hose or my water softener leaking under full pressure.

That said, I almost always just fill my FW tank and run off the pump. That way if there's a leak anywhere, I will know because the pump will cycle. I have less "stuff" to put away when it's time to leave also.

The only thing I have hooked up while in a full service CG is the power cord. I never get my stinky slinky out until it's time to leave either. We seldom spend more than 4 days in a row at any one place.

Here's mine. On my two Dutch Stars, I mounted the regulator in the wet bay as I like to keep things simple and don't want to be attaching it at the spigot. On both Dutch Star's the water hose/reel was rated to 150psi.

What is it on the Shark Bite fitting? I think that's one after the reg.



Over the years if I remember correctly I've knocked on 3 doors to let folks know they had water leaks. 2 were split hoses and one was pouring out of the belly of a 5th wheel.

i placed mine after the filter its a watts WHOLE house regulator


i modified the lines to run up and across the bay to another bay to the water softener then back to the main line and a new shut off so we can recharge the softener without having to remove it or unhook lines, just using shut off valves and drains

That additional hose goes to an added-on ball valve and quick connect fitting. It quick connects to the black tank flush. This way, I can flush the black tank with the main hose, and it bypasses the water filter so I'm not filtering flush water. You can see it in this photo, with ball valve at the top. I leave it disconnected until I need it.

You'll want it as close to where the water enters your coach. The location is totally up to you.

Same!

Shut off spigot to 3 neighbors who were absent. 2 split hoses, one TT with water flowing out.

Put the water regulator at the hose bibb to protect the hose. Some parks can have water pressure as high as 100 PSIG.

Mine is in the wet bay also. When I check in at a CG Iím not familiar with, I always ask what the water pressures is. If itís high, I put a second regulator on the CG hose bib to protect my hose since my adjustable is mounted. With 2 regulators, if my RV pressure is to low, I work to adjust it.
