Youroo, you're right. What I meant to say was that it doesn't store hot water, just cold. It won't increase the volume of hot water.

You are incorrect, it increases the volume for the entire water system, HOT & COLD when you are on the pump.

OC, I said "it won't increase the volume of hot water." No argument that it increases the total system volume but the water in the accumulator is cold. It's not warm until it leaves the accumulator and the WH warms it.

Surely if you have the skills to add an accumulator you can add a valve to shut it off before travel.

In fact you should put a valve there anyway to keep "pink" out of the tank when you winterize. That way after you drain the system, you can close the valve before you put the antifreeze in the lines.

Silly question the water lines can hold a max of what pressure? 120psi? Water coming in from the campground is dropped to 55psi thru my water regulator so what is the max pressure pump a 2015 Roo can handle? 90psi? Just trying to see if replacing this all including my filter is worth the trouble

The water lines can hold a lot more pressure than the plastic fittings and valves can. If there is a pressure related failure, it will most likely appear in the toilet and/or faucet valves.

Not a matter of skills, but no one mentioned adding a valve. I was merely pointing out the necessity of it!

Today I cleaned and organized the coach in preparation for taking it in for the Safe-T-Plus installation and the "cheap handling fix". They're also going to do an alignment and rotate the tires.

I never noticed this counter before.....on the dash (Georgetown 270). Is it for generator hours?
