How much pressure ?

When I took delivery of my Windjammer,one of the freebees they gave me was a pressure regulator for the TT. My question is, are they all preset to 45 psi ? That does not seem like a lot of pressure or is that all the pvc plumbing can handle ? I think city water usually is about 60psi. I would guess the water pressure could be considerable less if the camp ground is crowded and lots of water usage. Is water pressure a common problem at CG ?. Lots of experience out there, how do you all handle it ? Thanks in advance

I think a common target is 45-50 psi.

I'm unsure how often pressure is high at campgrounds- it's one of those things, "everyone says you should have one", so I have one. In fact, after suffering the cheap $8 fitting, I sprung for a $80 nice Watts regulator and have been showering my luxurious mane in bliss.

If it's the non-adjustable male x female straight connection regulator, throw it away and buy a Watts or do without.
