2010 - need water pressure regulatoron hose?

I was watching an airstreamnw video on youtube on how to hook up AS - and they said new AS's don't need a water pressure regulator on the city water hose - since they have it covered in the trailer. Is this true for a 2010 model?

Note: finally getting ready on Tuesday to take my 1st trip in my AS.

Yes, until they start leaking and you remove it.

Is true that an Airstream has a pressure regulator built into the water system and it does cover the trailer. IT DOSE NOT COVER the hose. Now that said I have never used a pressure regulator on the city side of the hose and have only seen a handful of city systems that had pressure high enough to expand the hose. I have seen others loose a hose do to high pressure. So purchase a reinforced hose or a regulator, your option. Do Not buy one of those 3 in. long brass so called regulator. They have no capacity to regulate pressure, but are sold nation wide as such.
