Most regulators that have a gauge are also adjustable. I don’t have the data at hand any more. Check the specs for “adjustable” and look for the gauge. The gauge only measures output pressure, by the way. That’s all that you need.

I carry a 10' and a 25' freshwater hose and a 25' orange hose to flush my grey tank. Most of the time I can get by with the 10' hose which is nice. For sewer i have 2 hoses that are in 10' sections. We added and extra hose holder under the trailer. Our trailers sewer valves are in front of the rear tires and it usually makes the distance too far for one standard 20' section.

I have an adjustable that I've had for years, if it has a slot/nut it's adjustable, most all have a plug that will accept a gauge. I recently purchased an oil filled gauge and added it.

I need 100' to hookup while I'm stored at home. So I have two 50' and one 25' white hoses. I carry them all when I travel. In my 25+ years of Airstreaming, only a few times have I needed a hose longer than 25'. But, when I need more I really need it!

I also have a cartridge type whole house water filter that I have permanently attached into a 10' white hose. Every once in a while, 10' is enough!

I also carry a colored hose to drain gray waste water into the Blueboy tote tank. That dinky little hose that comes with the tank is too short.
I also carry a different colored hose to use around the campsite, when I camp a long time at one site.

50' blue hose in a hose carrier for fresh water, 25' hose (that shrivels up fast and very light) for washing out the black water tank. 50' black hose if I use the macerator. 2 10' hoses for emptying tanks; one in the tube, one in storage that I clean out with a tube cleaner. Once in awhile dump stations can be hard to get to, and I was very thankful that that extra length on one occasion. All my hoses are the very flexible type that are very easy to deal with in hot or cold weather.

Like many I carry a 25 and 50 foot white hose for drinking water and a short green hose for waste. Just be sure not to mix them

We carry a 25' water hose plus a replacement; a 25' "grey" water hose used for flushing, etc; 2 standard length sewer hoses, plus a replacement. We also carry an extra sewer connector.

I carry 25’ potable water hoses x2, one gray hose for non potable water cleanup and 3 lengths of 10’ sewer hose and a water bandit, and I’ve needed them all from time to time. The couple that does “The Long, Long Honeymoon” on YouTube gave very sage advice when setting up your campground. Position the trailer to be closest to the sewer connection first, the rest will fall into place. So true! Even with city water hookups, I’ve started just filling my tank and using the pump. It saves concerns over water pressure variations at campgrounds and a possible “blow out.”

We carry a 25', 50' and another 25' hose. There have been a couple situations when we were boondocking where a hydrant was available at a park that was about 80' away.

If you have an adjustable water-pressure regulator, at what pressure do you set the flow?

Fresh Water Hose and Sewer Hose Length Dilemma

I set to 50 pounds or less by the built-in gauge to keep the strain off the hose. This seems to get enough flow through the tankless water heater.

The previous cheap fixed regulator did not allow enough flow in some campgrounds, and made my hose bulge when not flowing water. Chucked it out and got a decent one instead. No issues to date.

I don't use city water directly, all use is from the FW tank. I use the regulator, set at 40psi, on the CG 'spigot' to preserve our flex hose while filling the tank or when using the hose.

POI...we don't Resort Glamp.

We don't have near that many camping nights in, but also carry three 25' fresh water hoses. We do similarly with our black water hoses and power cords as well. Can't think of a situation where I'd want to come up a bit short on any of them...
