Good point but I'll add, if the gauge is reading zero when you are ready
to use it, it doesn't need to be manually equalized.

I have mine inside but due to laziness and not concerns about stealing. I don't protect my white hoses (even though I've read the concerns online). I leave my regulator always hooked up to the city water inlet in my wet bay. I even put a quick connect onto it to make hooking up my primary hose easier.

It is a gauge and regulator from RV water filter store, so I will send them a query. This site is awesome, so many helpful posts and so much learning. If it wasn't for the information here, I wouldn't have even known about the importance of a regulator, nor the source of a watts high flow unit.

Thanks...

Yep, mine is on the inboard end of the hose and my PI surge protector is hardwired. Last night someone walked on my sewer hose which is 25 ft long because of the strange location of the drop on my site. Reminds me that folks just wander around your unit when you are not here and some of the gear is a pretty attractive and easy to grab.

Dick's answer (on a Saturday no less). air pocket, no problem. Plus a couple other pieces of input... Great customer service. I highly recommend RVWATERFILTERSTORE.


Robert,
No problem. The air pocket is there to allow for expansion that will bleed out the plug and suck back in when the fluid contracts. This is to prevent actual oil from getting out, which is also why we advise to keep the plug up as much as possible. You have it set up very well, although I would suggest that if you have it set at 45 like may be indicated in the picture, that you move it up to the 60-65 psi range. If the park has it, you will enjoy that much more performance out of your water system. Obviously, if you are too concerned about pressure in the RV, you may choose to leave it at a lower pressure. Your plumbing is rated at 125 psi, so half that should not be an issue. Of course, you may have it already set higher and the pressure at the park is only 45. Anyway, you are good.

And, to add to his customer service- pre-order, he called me on a Sunday night to answer questions. Good stuff!
