Water Pressure Regulator

My next COVID-19 project.
Lola says “water pressure is a lot lower when connected to campground spigot than when using with water pump”.

After seeing some posts here, I decided to replace my Camco inline regulator with this honking Renator regulator. The factory setting is about 45 psi and it is about the same as the water pump, which is about 40psi, according to the literature.
I made a video showing the before/after, but, for some reason, I can’t post. I will do it on the Escape FB page.

Lola is very happy!

I have a similar regulator, although Valterra branded and with some detail differences. It's great, because I can see the actual output pressure and easily adjust it if desired, rather than hoping that a blind fixed regulator is working.

Brian and Pat,

Why didn’t you slap me silly and show me the error of my ways!

Just be careful of freezing weather. I destroyed one of these leaving it out on a 22°F night.

Nice regulator. Just for information for other users the Shurflo 4008 pump cut-in (restart) is 40 PSI and cut-out (shut off) is 55 PSI.

Looks pretty nice but I think I will have to keep using the one I got from Escape for now.
amazon.com-$35.50 USD of course.
amazon.ca-$121.84 CAD

I've suggested this regulator before, and still think it's a good idea.

Don,
Nice! If it works for you, that’s great! We travel full time in our 21’ Escape and started noticing that our water pump had much more pressure than our water connection. So, I started checking it out.

Thanks Fred, that's good to know if we ever have that problem of low pressure.
