Waterpressure issue in 2007 32tk3

Do the Drv's have a built in water pressure regulator? We just got a new unit and replaced the water filter and things were ok for a while, not great pressure but ok. Then it decreased to a trickle. I took off our water pressure regulator and the pressure is great. I don't want to damage the plumbing though with not having a pressure regulator at the tap. The park has 50psi pressure. Is this ok for our unit?

Might move this question to DRV topic to get more replies. In any event unless added by a previous owner there is no onboard water pressure regulator. I think they are supposed to pressure test the trailer plumbing to over 100psi so you should be OK. In my 07 Elite Suite the plumbing leaked a lot (the flexible rubber garden hose type outlet from the pump was especially leak prone) so I always used an outside regulator set at 40 or below. I tried never to use the pump as it would almost always overpressure the system and cause a leak. I think mine was unusual in that regard as others never seemed to have the leaks mine did.

Check the screens on the ends of the faucets and in the shower heads. We were having a similar problem with presser continuing to drop, and I found "grains" of calcium in all of the screens. Cleaned them out and pressure was restored.

Sound like bad pressure regular. If it a in line one they will do that get a good Watts reg.
