I'm curious, where do you live to get water delivered at 120 psi, most places are regulated to max 50psi.

At Lowes. Have not been to a campground that I could not use this at the shore hook up. It is a Watts pressure reducer and is preset to 50#. Bought brass adapters and use a 5/8 water hose so flow is not restricted. It's pretty compact.

I could run a bunch of extra hoses to connect to the house instead, but I would have to drive over the hose driving to the rear garage.

I do not want to jack hammer the walkway apart so I can run a new water line.

I would prefer something that is smaller than the regulator that is on the house.
I would install a standard water regulator on that high of a pressure line. When on the road I use something like this:

This should handle any high pressure you find at a camp ground.

We live in Yosemite Lakes Park, CA. A private HOA community. There are a few million gallon water tanks scattered around. They are about 1,500 feet higher than some of the homes. As far as I know there is no law of any kind that requires any water company to provide the water at any particular pressure.

When I lived in San Jose I had 95 psi at the faucet.

In both cases there is a pressure regulator where the water enters the house. Where I live now the water line to the RV is connected between the meter and the house pressure regulator. When I lived in San Jose I ran a one inch water line to the back yard at full city pressure. This allowed me to top off the pool faster and it also made it very nice for hosing off the patio, until the water problem arose.

After we bought the house in YLP we lived in the MH for about a month, while we had the entire house painted and replaced all of the carpets. During this time is when I found out how high the water pressure was. So we, as already suggested, switched over to using water in the on board tanks via the small electric pump. This was annoying but doable. We did shower in the house.

Most water pressure regulators for a drip irrigation system will not tolerate 128 psi for the water inlet side. There are some that will tolerate high inlet pressure.
