For my watts regulator (same place as Dan), I bought a 4' piece of hose and connected that to my city water inlet. On the end of the hose, I connected my watts regulator and connect/disconnect my water hose from there to the wife's water hookup. Since it's 4', it lays at the bottom of the water bay when in use and between travels (i.e. no stress on the water inlet fitting).

My hose isn't protected this way but it is a risk I'm willing to take.

The only thing I really want to do is add a quick disconnect to the one hose I use the most so that it's a quicker/easier hookup to the regulator. Most of the time I can get away with just one hose instead of using both of them.

When it came to water pressure I was a firm believer that "More is Better."

I love a strong hot shower. That was until last summer when I saw my white potable water hose look like giant white sausage all bloated in the sun.

Now the pressure regulator goes on at the hose bib; every time. I did buy the adjustable one with a gauge so I can monitor it and increase the pressure as needed.

I saw that at a CG last summer! Guy across from me came in,
opened a brand new hose. Yeah, I was lounging with a cold one
and watched him set up. After he got set up they headed for the beach.
An hour or so later I looked over there and it looked like a string of
white watermelons!! I went over and shut his spigot and told him what
had happend when he got back. The hose was toast fer sure! Hope he
saved the receipt!
