Well, I'm looking at my regulator right now at white tank regional park. My regulator is set at 60 psi, and the gauge reads 60 psi.....so park pressure is 60 or more.

Why depend upon a cheap pressure reducing valve to protect you from a burst water line? Just fill you tank and use the internal 12V water pump, that is why you have a pump. I have a 20 year old 12v pump on my boat, same model as used in my RV, and it still works fine. That way I never worry about a runaway pump in the RV park distribution system blowing out all the fittings inside my RV

We do the same thing - use the fresh water tank exclusively. We recommend that anyone connected to "city water" be sure to turn off the water supply when you're away from your RV.

Back to the O.P. - we replaced our city water inlet recently and also realized the old 50 psi and new 65 psi numbers. 65 is all that's currently available unless you come across new-old-stock. So, we went with 65. As I mentioned, we don't use it but want the trailer to be fully functional so it's there if needed.

Recommend a regulator?

Can anyone recommend a specific external regulator to use? Perhaps with a link to Amazon?

Thanks,

Karl
