Rich says,

The simple answer is that most RV water lines are designed to handle around 100psi. Many RV parks have low enough water pressure that you don’t need a regulator, however plenty have very high water pressure that can burst RV water lines. It would be disastrous to have your RV springs a leak where you can’t see, and that could cause water damage to your floor, cabinets, walls, storage bins, and anything stored in any of those locations – not good!

You’ll also learn other helpful tips in selecting the best system for your rig including,

  • advantages of a canister-type water filtration system
  • drawbacks of using an in-line filter
  • best water filtration systems for full-time and part-time RVers
  • how water filters are rated and what the rating means for you

Watch Rich explain the water filtration setup he uses in his rig below.
