Water pump and city hookup

If i fill fresh water tank and run pump while hooked to city water will we have better water pressure ,like for shower? Or does it not work like that?

Not a good idea, in my opinion. If you put more than 40# pressure in the lines you will blow something and have a mess, a tough repair - probably both.

Whichever one has the most PSI wins.Most members don't use their pump that way though! Youroo!!

Yes, I use both on the occasion that the city water pressure is low. Your camper water pump has a pressure shut-off and senses the in house line pressure so it should never put more pressure in the lines than its rated for. The other one that I have seen more frequently is low flow and the camper pump will make up for that too. You should always be using a regulator on the city water but a high-flow-regulator will help.
Well that’s what I do anyhow, seems to work
