Is there onboard water regulator?

On a Sandpiper 315RE, is there a in-line water pressure regulator? I added an external one, just because I had one. Have not really checked it out, was wondering if I just shot myself in the foot.

It's doubtful that there's a factory water regulator.

Do not think so. I have the 365 SAQ which does not have one.

I work part time at an RV dealership. I've never seen a built-in water regulator.

All the new ones are plumbed with pex. I have not used a pressure regulator in ages, pex is the same stuff new houses are plumbed with.

This is true. However the white hose will look like a sausage in the sun if the pressure is much over 45 PSI.

Worse yet, the cheap plastic fixtures are not tested to much more than 50 PSI.

I would hate to come home from a day at the beach to find a Tsunami in the camper.

It NEVER Hurts to be on the "Safe-Side". I Have a 365 SAQ, and whenever I Use The Regulator, However, it Cuts my Water Faucets down to a VERY Small Stream! Then I Get Frustrated and Take it Out of The Line. Maybe My Reg. is Bad?
