Thanks DB, you guy are great!

Have a great day...

X2 on the regulator. I always use one and it is adjustable. When flushing the black water tank, I open the drain and turn on the water - hot and cold from the outside shower which I connect to the flush inlet. I then adjust the pressure to unrestricted by using a screwdriver to maximize the pressure. When finished, I adjust it back down to 30 psi. or a little less.

Thanks John for your advice, a water pressure regulator with a gauge is already in my tool kit.
