Had an RV park once tell me that their pressure was very high. I installed my regulator but the pressure was poor. Suffered through the first couple of days. After talking and overhearing them say " I have to pay for water in the park and water out of the park, so no leaks." Later I wondered if their pressure was that high or if their water bill was that high. Took off the regulator and the pressure (48psi) was just fine.

If not creating my own, I would go to the website previously mentioned:

Their Watts Brass New Model 263A-LF Lead Free Adjustable Regulator, 10-65 range, 4-4.5 GPM. If this Watts is only getting 4 to 4.5 GPM, you can just imagine how poorly the Valterra performs.

I have a non adjustable high flow rated at 55-60 psi. Works Great.

I have an adjustable Watts and am seriously considering the Valterra A01-1122VP that hooks to the cg hose bib.

I'm not saying they are all bad, however I had two Valterra regulators and both had poor brass castings. One leaked through the porous casting more like a weeping and the other separated where the female hose bib attached. My third one was a Watts and I haven't had a issue.

Wow - 110 psi seems high. I always install a 60 psi regulator - don't trust campground pressures. If you are used to 110 psi pressure I can understand why installing a regulator with a much lower pressure limit results in decreased pressure within the RV.

You may want to take a look at the owner's manual to determine what maximum pressure is recommended.

Thanks for that. They have a new Fairview Hi-flow regulator that I just ordered for $24.95.

I use the Watts that is pre calibrated (no gage) and fixed at 50psi. I also use a 5/8 hose to maintain as much volume as I can. Out performs any Valterra I ever had.

I read the installation manual for the Gerard tankless heater and it stated that the heater requires 2.5 gallons per minute in order to work properly. Important consideration when choosing a regulator and/or filters. I use the Watts 263A and it works like a charm. (Now thinking the Doulton ceramic candle filter would make a great addition - high-flow rate and cleanable for long life)
