Need advice on "Brand of adjustable water pressure regulator" to purchase.

If you'd had a good experience with your "adjustable water pressure regulator" and don't mind sharing which one you use, I'd love to hear from you. We're needing one pretty soon, and was hoping to buy one that had good-standing reviews. Like-wise, if you have warnings about others, share that too!

Thank you in advance for your time.

Most camping supply stores have inexpensive regulators that keep the pressure at a max of 40 lbs. They attach to the water hose bib when you hook up. Simple to use and will save you a great deal of trouble and expense by keeping the pressure within 40 lbs.

I have the 40lb regulator and the pressure at the faucets is a bit low. 40lb was max allowed for my box trailer with plastic piping. I'm wondering if the original copper plumbing is capable of handling higher pressure? I have the built in regulator but have no idea if it works or what pressure it is set for. I would like to think that a copper piped trailer could run similar pressures as a house...or at least 50-60lb.

If using a higher regulated pressure, there will be more water flowing out the faucet. Keep this in mind when staying at places with partial hookups. I mean the ones with power & water only. Filling the holding tanks sooner means more blueboy trips to the dump station.
