Water Pressure refers to the measure of pressure of the water from the ground when filled into the RV Tanks. As most water lines in the RVs rate up to 50-60 psi, water pressure can be varied and should be checked at all times.
A seasoned RVer knows that accessories to control and navigate the Water Pressure are crucial for safety when filling-in the RV white water tanks.

“To prevent RV pipes from bursting, it’s a good idea to use a pressure regulator to control the water pressure coming out of the ground”.
RV Water Pressure Tips
- Is the water pressure too high in your RV?
If you are aware that the water station has a higher water pressure than the psi of your RV water tank, you must use a water pressure regulator. Remember to choose a fitting water pressure regulator and keep a spare one, for emergency usages.
- Water Hose Temperature
When your water hose is subjected to high temperatures, it can split and burst the water out. To avoid this, insulate your water hose.
- Is your Water flow too low?
If your water hose is collapsed inside, there can be solid matters that can pose as an obstruction to the flow of water when using the RV faucets. If your water filters are not cleaned or heaped with debris, cleaning it will increase the flow of water.
If you’re an avid user of the water pressure regulator, using a gauge to measure the water pressure is a long-term benefit.
