This is where a 1/2 tank of water and a High Performance pump are worth their weight in gold

Some pumps are expensive (like $200 expensive! ) Here is a good one that will not break the bank but still give you 55PSI water flow:

Makes sense what you are saying but I am very rarely away from a decent H2O hookup and usually fill fresh water tank 25% when I get to campground in case water becomes a problem. Can you use any accumulator with this Pump? I may go off the grid next summer to do some state and federal parks

X2. Just get a battery powered digital Hunter or Honeywell model.

The thermostats without a AA or AAA battery compartment need 24v DC to operate and RV ACs don't have a 24v line.

If you're always hooked up to city water, you won't benefit from an accumulator but if you boondock or at least camp without a city water hookup it may be something you want.
To clarify some points here,it allows a smooth even flow of water like when taking a shower without the (Pulsating) that comes from just trying to operate with the water pump! The (Accumulator Tank) also feeds the Entire RV water system,not just the (Cold Side)! To (Totally Benefit) from (Pump turning Off/On) while using RV water,having to turn on pump at Rest Stops,Pump running in the middle of the night when Toilet and Sink are used, and Nice even flow Showers,Install a (5 Gal. Accumulator) no need for a large RV Pump,the Stock pumps will supply ample (FLOW and Pressure) if a large accumulator is installed! The little (Black Plastic Accumulator Tank) is a (WASTE) of time and $$,for the SAME effort you can install a large one! The (Accumulator Tank) can be installed (ANYWHERE) in the (Cold Pressure Line) in the RV! Youroo!!

The only disadvantage to an accumulator is when you turn the pump off to travel and would happen to develop a leak, the accumulator will push water out of the leak and you won't know it until after the disaster happens and you stop. Other than that, it is a BIG advantage for those that boon dock or use their water pump. If I were going to put an accumulator in, it would be a 5 gal one and a new high volume pump.
