Water regulator replacement

Hi.
Just bought a 1988 Excella 1000 32' side bath. Seems from reading that the built in water regulator is gone. No city water getting in.

Does anyone know of a source/part number for a replacement. I do not want to rebuild it.
Thanks

Are you referring to the pressure regulator? They are not absolutely necessary. If you hook up to city water at high pressure (above 75 psi) you could blow some plumbing. But, you can get a water pressure regulator that you put on your inlet hose or hydrant that does the same thing for about $15.

Are you also saying you have no water pressure when hooked up to city water? Never heard of that.

Twinkle. Lunatic x2 search seems to point to a gas regulator. Am I missing something?

One possibility, although weird, is the PO removed the water regulator and capped off the ends. Do you see any capped off plumbing in the city water line?

Sounds like is originally talking about the city water pressure regulator aka pressure relief valve to me. No mention of gas.

Another possibility is a stuck or backwards check valve. Also weird.

Sounds like there might be a closed valve in there. Pressure regulator usually don't fail in a way that zero pressure gets by.

It appears to be a watts regulator. I have a photo but I can't get it to upload. Probably the tribbles!

You can find pressure regulators at Home Depot, and even ones with sharkbite fittings on both ends. The ones I have seen are in the Sharkbite plumbing section. You need the 1/2 inch size. I am not sure of the brand, it might even be Watts, like the original one was.
