Fresh Water Regulators and external filters
I'm picking up my new Lacrosse 318BHS on the 31st and I have a question about water regulators and filters.
I previously had a very old (1978) 19' TT, it was my first and i loved it. I went to an RV dealership to buy a fresh water hose to hook up to the trailer as the one I had was not long enough. The guy there asked if I had a water regulator and a filter that hooked into the water hose. I asked why i would need one. He told me that if the hookup is over 45psi you could potentially break the water lines in the trailer and the regulator is there to throttle back the pressure. He also said that the filter is there to take impurities out of the water that comes out of the hose but I thought that the water system in the trailer had some sort of filtration system in it. Am I wrong?
I told the guy i had both just so he would back off but I did not get them because I never had a problem with pressure from any campsite i had been to. My question to the experienced campers is the regulator necessary or was buddy just trying to get more money out of me? The same goes for the water filter.
Thanks and I wish you all the best on your camping adventures this year
