Pressure regulator for 120 PSI

I have two of the small inline pressure regulators. However they appear to be worthless when the water pressure is 120 psi.

My house is on a regulator down to around 35 psi. But the house we bought recently has 120 psi at the full hookup RV pad.

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 can see that this would work well at home by just putting in on my RV water supply line.

It looks a little bulky and awkward to use on the road.

Mount it inside the unit behind the wall on the inlet hose.

125 psi water pressure

Is it feisable to fill the fresh water tank and use the 12v pump for water supply

I broke mine

DO NOT hold the dial in your hand while tightening the connections.

Regardless (Which/What) Regulator you use when the (Supply PSI is 120) the Regulator must be placed at the Source! 99% of the White water hoses RVers use will look like a (Anoconda that has eaten a litter of pigs)! Youroo!!
