The water pressure at a camp site can change throughout the day and different days of the week. It may not be a good idea to trust the reading you get when you test it before connecting.

The pressure regulators the trailer supply stores sell have a very small opening and will reduce your water flow. I recommend buying a regulator at a plumbing supply store. These have large openings and are able to regulate the pressure without reducing the water flow.
That's good to know

Very good point, one more thing to do,


Thanks

You would think the factory would build one in behind the city connect.
