I have never seen a failure of the water lines, but on our previous TT the pressure would be so high sometimes it would cause all of our fixtures to drip. It was basically the valves in toilet and sink faucet being the weak link. We bought a 40psi brass reducer for about 10 bucks and have not had a problem since. On our new SolAire we will probably just continue to use that until it becomes clogged or worn out. At that point we will probably just buy the same one again. If it works, than why change it?

Bill - get the Watts water pressure regulator for $100 (I have the N55BG which appears to have been replaced with the "Watts Brass Model X65BG") from RV Water Filter Store. Spending that kind of dough will make you when people are doing almost the same thing for $10-$20. BUT, I tell you - the showers are as close to going naked on the water line as you can get. Seriously awesome.

(No, I'm not affiliated with them. The water filter is just that good. )

Because, if you or the wife have a beautiful long flowing mane, the showers (combined with the Oxygenics shower head) are really that good. I started with the $10 regulator and couldn't believe I was spending $100 on the same product. BUT, it's really that good.

(Ok, I'll stop cheerleading. )

FLABio is more like it! But don't worry - I've even annoyed myself!

The regulator is a WATTS N45B. That and the filter are just mounted together on a piece of 2x4. I found that I like the Whirlpool cartridges that they sell at Lowes better than the GE cartridges (Home Depot). They both fit in the GE filter just fine.
