Pressure Regulator

Have a 2003 Lapalma 34pbd with the workhorse chassis gasser. We started full time in it on July 9th due to necessity. We started having toilet issues last week and 2 days ago our filtered water faucet started dripping and won't quit. My question is it possible the water pressure regulator needs to be replaced.
Also is there a shut off valve for the faucet or do I need to shut off the entire system to replace it if needed?

Guess I should have looked under the sink. Found the shut off for the filtered water faucet. I'd still like to know if the pressure regulator can still go bad. Thank you.

they can go bad. What type do you have now?

I prefer the ones with gauge.

I've been to campgrounds that warned to not hook up without some sort of regulator. Their pressure was over 110 psi out of the faucet.

Could be a faulty regulator. I am currently camped in an rv park that requires a me to install an in-line pressure regulator upstream of the potable and black tank flush hose connections to avoid leaking at the rv connection. However, most rv parks I stay out do not require an in-line pressure regulator.

A lot of campgrounds use water that comes for a mountain side source - great water, but due to large head pressures it is advisable (necessary) to use an in-line pressure regulator.

I had a problem with one in-line regulator that I purchased - it let almost no volume through. Water just trickled out of faucets (after an initial normal volume flow). Switched to a new in-line pressure regulator - problem solved.

Can't imagine connecting to an unknown water source without inline filter and pressure regulator with gauge.

I will double check my owner's manual but I thought I read that our coach had a built-in regulator.

I really like the Fairview regulator from RV Water Filter Store. It is fixed at 55PSI and, unlike the cheapos, gives you full flow. I bought the inline pressure gauge with it and put it on the output of the regulator so I can always see the pressure that is going into the RV!

Get a real regulator with a real gauge on it that you can adjust. Those inline "regulators" can be problematic.
