Pressure Regulators

Getting an adjustable regulator, to set the pressure higher than the 40psi that I'm getting, with the regulator that's on it now. I've got a gauge, which measures the park's pressure at 100. Question....does anyone out there use the adjustable one, and if so, what are setting your pressure to, that's safe for the trailer, in this case, brand new, 2017 Cardinal, 3950TZ. ?? I know not to got over.....55psi???

Lots of threads about this. I've had both, adjustable and not. The one that works best for us is the high flow, 50 psi, non-adjustable one. Cheap and easy. You can spend a lot on an adjustable one if it makes you feel better though

We have some friends that have never used a regulator of any type and it hasn't caused them any problems.

So who knows? Just do what you think is right for you

Just ordered an adjustable one, thinking I'd dial it right around 55. Course in true fashion, I've already bought a separate gauge, so now I'll have set regulators, adjustable with a gauge, and separate gauge. The way to do these things is always spend twice as much as you need to.

You just need to not put one on once and the consequences will make you to never do that again !

I set mine about 45. That was my pressure at home. My manual says pressure max is 50. The first park I hooked up to had 70. The day before I got there a guy blew out his rig. Owner insisted on using one before he did it to.

We all hear horror stories, but you always wonder. I have friends that have had multiple RVs and refuse to use a regulator. Never had a problem.

The pressure at my house averages 80psi. Averages. Had the kids staying in our RV beside the house for a week. They helped me hook up the utilities and I didn't notice they didn't use our 50psi high flow regulator until after they left. No problems.

Do I still use it, yep. But I no longer think it is disastrous if I don't. But I do know that the pressure in our RV is way to low if we use a 30psi regular regulator.

So find one that works for your rig and don't worry about it anymore.
