The filter has nothing to do with regulating the pressure. It will see whatever pressure is present at the campground. You need the regulator to control the pressure to the filter.

Thanks! I didn't think it made a diff. I was asking just because at 2 parks so far the pressure was low.

Not having a water pressure regulator can damage the water pump check valve due to unexpected surges. If you have a FR 3051S then it could cause your fresh water tank to overfill and run out the service port on the right side of the RV. Been there, done that, lesson learned!

Get this. Makes all the difference in the world. Those cheap plastic regulators restrict too much pressure.

Thanks for the suggestion Timex! That looks like a good one. Just a couple of questions : I assume you adjust the pressure with the gray knob on top? It looks like it's hooked up right at the water spigot is that the way it always has to be, or could you hook it up to the TT itself. Being adjustable what kind of pressure do you want/what kind of pressure do these trailers tolerate? I'm picking up my Salem cruise lite next week. Thanks again!

Don't understand the connection. What does the fresh water tank have to do with city connection?

Nash,
If you hook your pressure regulator at the RV instead of at the spigot, you could be in for an unwelcome surprise. On a really hot day your hose might swell dramatically and or burst! I have seen campground water pressures near 100 psi.

I've heard this before and think that Herk (FRF member) has posted a picture that he found. But, for me- my water hose goes into an enclosed water bay and I like the convenience of leaving the regular always hooked up at the camper side. It's just one less thing to futz with when I setup and break down. I figure hoses are cheap. If I start blowing thru them- I'll change my tune.
