Just did 4 nights with no leakage. Park pressure was low this time so still on thought that working as possibly designed to relieve excessive city water pressure. When it first happened I turned the water pump suction selection to the "winterize hose" suction and tank stopped filling. Or maybe I reset the check valve as coach sat for 2 weeks with no system pressure.

Well, fix didn't stop the filling of the fresh water tank. It did seem to help the pump though. Now the pump doesn't run every 5 minutes or so like it did last night. I have an appointment at the dealer. Feb 23! Coach is useable, at least.

I know often when using a water regulator for city water the pressure isn't good enough to give a nice water flow out of the faucets or shower. I'll remove the regulator and manually regulate the flow simply by how far open the CG water valve needs to be. I'll start about half way or so, give or take, and have my DW check the faucet pressure until adequate.

I purchased an adjustable pressure regulator for just that reason.

If the CG water pressure isn't good enough to give you what you want with the regulator installed, then I don't think you need to throttle the CG valve at all when you remove the regulator. I'd say the pressure's already below what the regulator is trying to maintain; in this situation, the regulator has basically just become another flow restriction.

This will limit the water flow, but will not reduce the pressure the RV water system sees. Once the water usage in your RV stops, the pressure in the system will equalize to the pressure of the campground system. The pressure regulator is designed to prevent damage or leaks. If your regulator delivers too low a pressure, switch it out for one with a higher pressure.

If the CG pressure is low then just fill up the on board water tank and use the pump, this should solve the issue. Yes you may need to fill up every couple days but you will have the pressure with jeopardizing any of the pipes or fittings in the MH.

I think I'll get an adjustable regulator for before this season.
