Water pressure regulator.

Is this a reliable water pressure regulator? I have a 2013 grey wolf 26bh.Ive heard some people say to turn water off when you leave the campsite if you have a cheap regulator due to the risk of the regulator failing. Is this a good regulator this is what I was advised to buy from my dealer and i think I paid 25 or 30 bucks for it. I'm a first time camper. Thanks in advance.

They're all good. I use an expensive pressure regulator from RV Water Filter Store .com because it regulates pressure without affecting the flow/amount of water you get. We "need" good showers in our camper because the 3 of ; of us have long thick hair.

OK stupid question here. Which one will you hook to the camper first? If it was me I would connect the 45% angle to the campers water hook up and then the regulator. Does it matter what order they are connected?

I connect the 45 degree angle to the camper and the pressure regulator on the end of the fresh water hose that connects to the campgrounds water spigot.

As Oakman says, the 90-degree elbow connector attaches to the RV to keep the hose from kinking when attached. The pressure regulator is attached to the campground faucet, and then the hose is attached, so that the pressure regulator protects both the hose and the RV water system.

Faucet ==> Pressure Regulator ==> Hose ==> Elbow Connector ==> RV

Water Regulator Valve

That is the same one we have used for the past 6 years with our old TT. Worked awesome except for the time my better half hooked up the water (that was always "MY JOB") and for some reason took the regulator off the hose as he thought the extra brass piece that was on the CG tap was a regulator. Needless to say he blew the pipes in the back of the TT at the outside shower. We spent the next day driving around to get parts so we could turn the water on again. Valuable lesson learned. 2nd Lesson learned, we no longer have his and her jobs. haha

That is the exact regulator we use. Until we got that one, we used our onboard water and ran the 12V water pump to get enough pressure for a decent shower. Now we don't need to do that. Also, added the "oxygenics" (sp) shower head. Now we have decent showers.
