Valterra adjustable water pressure regulator with gauge

For yhose using this water pressure regulator where are you hooking it up? If outside at source aren't you worried about sticky fingers taking it?

If everything would be outside, I'd do it at the campground spigot solely to protect my hoses.

Let's see my Watts water regulator cost $90.00 and my water hose about ten bucks at Walmart. I plan to put the regulator inside the compartment and run the hose to it

As we only have a hold on the trailer and this is our first I am not sure if there is a hatch or just an outside connection yet. It is a Rockwood 2109s if anyone might know. Thanx for the quick replies spock and Dan.

I have never given it a second thought. Never even thought about someone stealing it until you just brought it up.

Not that things can not be stolen but in all my years I only heard of beer being taken out of a cooler that was kept kept outside an RV. Hope this continues to be the norm. And your can probably guess the gender and age group of the invaders.

I camp to get away from the world.. If I am that worried about my garden hose and regulator being stolen I just need to stay home... Like above, not that things every do not get taken, but I have never had it happen. If it did, I'd be sad but would move on.. I half the time do not lock anything up, even the surge protector. The only thing I do lock is my geni and fuel, especially when at a rest stop for the night.

Agree. We have never had anything stolen in 30 years. If they took something like this I'd have to think they needed it more than me.

I always hooked my gauge directly to the campsite water spigot until I ran into a leaking back flow preventer. Then I hooked it inside the water compartment.

I really like the inside hook up as it does put my mind at rest. Although like the other posters I have never had a reason to worry.

I chain everything up, I don't worry about a thief, I worry about them walking off. My pressure regulator is not cheap and I don't even want to think about my surge suppressor, it's not cheap.
