If your City water Press is (Below) Water pump Press and you have F/W in your Tank,it is OK to have (Both On) at the same time! We have a Pump that puts out (55 PSI) and also a 5 Gallon Bladder pressure tank that Feeds constant flow to the system while on Pump so there is (Pressure) on the Water Pump check valve and the City Water check valve at ALL times! So City Water at anything Below (55 PSI) is NOT going to damage our check valve ! Youroo!!

Both on works if CG pressure is low. We had to run the pump at a CG we stayed at tis year. Sinks were fine but shower was terrible, turned on pump and you could take a shower. Pump works fine now!

Another gauge to bring?!
I suppose if the pressure is noticeably low, I can safely assume the pressure is below 55 psi and won't damage the pump?

I replaced my city connection with one that has a built in regulator. Reason I changed was the new one is recessed not sticking out like the old. Also changed FW tank fill to one with a door.

A water pressure guage/regulator is something every camper should have!

A32Deuce, where did you get the city water connection with the built in regulator? Was it a hard swap?

dogpa, I used a Shurflo #7222 recessed city water inlet with pressure reduction. Removed what came on RV, used a grinding bit in a drill to increase opening then Dicor around the opening hooked up hose and attached to side of RV. Now it doesn't stick out and I don't need an external pressure regulator. Camping World, Amazon, or any of the other RV supplyers.
