I have a 2008 27' International CCD FB and was never told that it came with a built in water regulator. My question is, due to never seeing this built in regulator, is there really one on our unit and if so where is it. I'm at a camp ground in Chapel Hill, North Carolina and was told by the park owner to take the regulator off the hose due to Air Stream having a built in regulator and my water pressure would be much better. I'm just checking prior to removing the hose regulator, the water pressure is not very high here.

Sorry I posted the above question, I just looked in the manual that came with the trailer and found where it states "there is a built in regulator so you do not have to worry about high water pressure". I also removed the hose regulator and yes the pressure is much better.

About once a year we are at a campground where we are warned to use a pressure regulator because local water pressure is too high—one place told us it was 150 psi. We put the regulator on the spigot and no worries about the hose.

Less frequently the pressure is so low at the campground the regulator plus the one in the Airstream combined cause insufficient pressure. I only remember having to remove ours once.

A simple brass regulator costs less than a new hose. Of course it is easier to forget the regulator than a hose.
