Bypassing water pressure regulator?

Owner's manual states there is a "built in water pressure regulator" to avoid damage from city water hook-ups that have too much pressure.

I understand this and have attached a brass device at the water supply with my previous trailer (not AS) to compensate, when needing to do so.

Where I'm hooked up at the moment, pressure in shower is low, pressure in kitchen spigot is OK, but could be better, and pressure from bath lavatory spigot is good. Pressure from city supply is good.

I would like to have better pressure in shower and kitchen.

What is the "built in regulator," where is it located and can it be modified or bypassed?

In a 2006 trailer you may have water restricters in you shower and faucets,I would take them apart and see,if that don`t work a regulator can be adjusted.Loosen the nut then screw in the bolt,that should raise the pressure. Dave
