Watts are very common. HD and LWS should have some in stock, have seen the shark bite ones mentioned at HD. You can also try a plumbing supply place as well. If you can find one with the same fittings it'll make swap out easier.
I'd really try following the pipe looking for a shut off valve first. Does the water enter a simple spigot valve on the outside that the hose connects to? Not sure on an '88 but it could be that valve too if so. Try cycling it a few times.
Hate for you to swap out regulator first and find it wasn't the problem but just a valve closed.
Can you call the PO and ask them?

The pressure regulator should have a adjusting screw(looks like a bolt) sticking out of the top of the regulator. If the valve is stuck you can try adjusting it up and down a little to get things to move again. Try getting back to the original spot so the pressure is the same.

Sorry me again, some have filters built into the valves. The body will look like there may be 2 valves built into the body but one won't look like a valve per se, it'll be offset from the regulator hat. If you think you'll have to pull it out regardless, check the filter before buying a new one, could just be clogged. Heck you can take the whole valve apart at that point if you're mechanically inclined they're pretty simple. Some cleaning and reassembly might work.

The PO may have had some issues with the backflow preventer (as I had had) and replaced it with a valve. If the valve is closed, no water would get into the trailer.

Ok. I cut the whole dang thing out. Put a new back flow valve in. Gave it the juice. Nothing. Oh the shower works. But nothing else. Owners manual mentions opening a saddle valve but no further instructions. I am stumped.

The fact the shower works tells me there is water getting into the system.
do the galley and bathroom faucets work on water pump but not city water? Have you checked the faucet screens? The shower is the one outlet that does not have one. Is the city water getting to your hot water heater? Did the shower work before you cut out the regulator? City water must go through the regulator before it gets to the shower.

How about the valves under the sinks that cut off water below the faucets themsrlves? Like the ones in the kitchen cabinet bellow the kitchen sink at home, and bath vanity. Are those open? Can't understand why they'd be closed but PO may have for some reason. And you don't usually find those in a shower line.

Well process of elimination. Since the sink lines come before the shower....on the bath sink it was the screen. Kitchen is still not working and it is not the screen. Don't see any valves. Will look in the morning. Toilet works too. In the morning I will try for hot water and a tank dump. Then the kitchen.
