location of pressure regulator

I have a 1996 25 excella and believe I have some problems relating to the pressure regulator. I am attempting to find the regulator, but as of yet, I have had no luck. Any help would be appreciated. I thought maybe the pressure regulator was behind the fresh water fill connection, but I do not believe this is the location. If so, it does not look like any regulator I have ever seen.

Again, any ideas,

Follow the lines inside of the trailer, it should be one of the first things you see. The thing on the left of the photo looks like an anti siphon valve on an outside hose hookup. This would prevent water from backing into the trailer from this hose if the pressure were to drop.

If your trailer has been re plumbed, it may not be present. Mine does not have one and I use a pressure regulator on the hose.

You can buy a hose pressure regulator at any RV supply...even Wal Mart. Some prefer to attach it to the water source at the begining of your supply hose but most place theirs where the supply hose attaches to the coach as I do. When first hooked the water to my coach after we bought it I located the coach regulator just inside and right after the hose attachment and 'assumed' it was functioning. My garden hose is 75' long and was void of any water. My hose water valve is an aqricultural type..on or off. So after hooking the hose to my coach I was to give it it's first test and threw on the valve. The water surged through the hose like a howitzer shell through a muzzle and blew out a half a dozen plumbing connections in our Trade Wind. It is funny ..... NOW!

I attach mine at the supply end of the hose. That way the pressure in the hose is regulated. Too much pressure in the hose can cause problems too.
