I take it none of you that (Must have 50+WP) ever DRY Camp! Our unit works just fine with the Factory installed water Pump,and you know they put out (NO where near 50+PSI and very LOW GPM)! Now we do have a 5gal pressure tank but PSI is still way Under 40PSI! We have our City water Reg. set at 40PSI and see NO diff from our pump! Youroo!!

“Apples and Kangaroo’s” comparison, between dry camping and city hookup.

When a person turns on a water item in a RV they should receive the Same output (City or Pump)! If they need (60+PSI) to achieve this output they have Issues! I was replying to the Posts that said they needed High PSI. Youroo!!

Pressure regulator

I have been using a adjustable pressure regulator ever since encountering
water pressure of 115PSI at a KOA campground in Forsyth, GA. The pressure was so great, it was blowing the fresh water hose out of the fitting
connection on the side of the RV. I set the adjustable regulator @ 50 PSI
max. Works great.

The only problem is the hand on the meter is not pressed on tight enough, had to replace the meter with a better meter.

Valterra A01-1117VP Brass Lead-Free Adjustable Water Regulator.

That is incorrect.

I'm curious as to how well that one works. Let us know after you try it out please. Jerry

Hey Stoney. I was looking at this model as well. Did you happen to go through with the Fairview and what do you think of it?

It has been years since the lead was taken out of plumbing solder since lead is carcinogenic. However, just recently I was buying a brass plumbing fitting (on Amazon), was warned it was not not lead free and not to be used for potable water.

In reading this thread, I thought about updating my water regulator to a Watts H560G. Yes, it is sold somewhere, but it has been discontinued and replaced by the FFH560G (Lead-Free model).

I thought the FR forum should be aware of this.

Don't know what the MAX pressure would be, but on my ShureFlo the pressure coming out of the pump is adjustable via a set screw. However, increasing the pressure will not help much unless the pump has a fairly high GPM rating, which mine does not.

Boowho??
