well...that's what it is supposed to do...IF there's too much pressure somewhere. might be functioning normally. or it could be broken. just leaving the system pressurized, with the hot water heater on, and not opening a tap for some time (like you might do if you were to turn on the water heater while the rig is in your back yard, and then forget to turn it off, and it sits there running for days or weeks) could cause enough pressure to build in the lines, and trigger this device.

It was leaking out water from the 12 volt pump pressure. The 12 volt pump was kicking off and on is how I found out it was bad.

I still need to know how to adjust that water regulator?

Hi mtman--Toss out the old pressure regulator. You will eliminate a lot of potential problems. Go to WalMart and buy a Marshall regulator for $8. in their RV section. Install it on your city water supply, connect one end of your hose to the regulator, and the other end to your trailer.--Frank S

Hi mtman--Forgot to mention the Marshall regulator is preset for about 45psi, which is exactly what your Argosy needs.--Frank S

Frank,
I just re-installed the old one, it works fine. I also have a small hose type Marshall regulator if I need it though.
