Doing a similar thing but am going farther and a bit overboard (DW would say that anyway).

I bought a Valterra 5/8" high pressure hose good for 200 psi. Luckily our water inlet is at the back of the TT where the kitchen is. I can connect to the incoming supply piece of cake. Installing a 10" whole house filter with a Pentek FloPlus high flow carbon block that filters cysts and sediment and is just 0.5 microns. Also the 263A with a downstream pressure gauge and a gauge ahead of the reg. that has a peak recording needle on it (pretty cheap anyway) and I will know how high the incoming pressure ever got. Even have a mini hammer arrestor to prevent hammering of the pipes which I've had happen due to cg supply surges. I also bought a new water inlet that's all brass (except mounting flange) to replace the original one that is plastic. And have a Shurflo pump strainer that I am going to use on the outside of inlet with hose adapter fittings. I have found the little screen at the end of the hose and also at inlet plug up easily and now I will be able to see when it gets dirty. It's a larger strainer and will hold more crud.

Now we'll be good for just about anything a campground can throw at us.
