I use the WM version and keep a spare, just in case.
This may or may not be related to pressure. Yes indeed a good idea to use a pressure regulator, but a burst line or a loose connection that just lets go can happen even with a regulator, which is why we got in the habit, as one other poster mentioned, of shutting the water supply off when we leave the trailer.

That is a good move. I didn't buy one of those high dollar ones. I got the low cost one from Walmart.

We received one with our first trailer and got some good advise during the PDI to hook it to the faucet then the hose wouldn't possibly bear the high pressure.

We have since bought a High Volume Regulator and like how it works much better. Cheap Insurance

We also have a surge protector. Cheap Insurance
