Right now i have it set to 53 PSI with the water off (inside trailer of course) but it drops down to 42 - 43 when the water is on.
Mine came(watts) factory set for 50 psi and that's where I left it. Make sure you ALWAYS us it. We were camped at a place with 160psi!!! Yup, they warned you at check in about the pressure. And they were right. Bent my little ole pressure gauge that reads up to 100psi like it was a pretzel. Now I have one that reads 160psi. Did a number on my cheapie hose, I now have hoses that are good up to about 150psi. Reason my hose took a hit was I like to put my whole house regulator up by the tt not at the water pedistal. Less chance of it growing legs while we are away.

That's just crazy! That's higher than we use in most fire hoses...
Could make for an interesting shower!

Crazy but very true!! Replaced my cork screwed psi gauge with one that goes to 160psi and it went right up to the max.
As I said, at least they did warn everybody of the extreme pressures.

You may also want to look at the lenght and diameter of your hose. The shorter the better and the thicker the better.

I know this is a very old thread, but remember the shower scene from "club med"?

Accepted standard water pressure-----

The accepted standard for water pressure is 40-65 PSI. Most city water pressure is around 50-60 PSI. But campgrounds can vary it is on a well from--- well just about any pressure they can get away with.

As stated, purchase a good adjustable pressure regulator with a gage, set your pressure at 55 PSI. At this pressure you will be covered for your RV.

I was in a CG in Forsyth, GA that the pressure was 95 PSI, it not only blew the hose out of the connection on the side of my RV (brand new) but also ruptured a new fresh hose. I did not have a regulator at the time,
but you can bet your bippy I have an adjustable regulator now.
The workers at the CG stated, "we get our water from the city of Forsyth"
RV ers are always complaining about too much water pressure.

Well DUH, install a regulator at the water entrance to the park BUBBA!
