  1. I always leave the water regulator attached to the hose.
    I also leave the Y attached to the water regulator and hose.
    I have left a Y at the campground.
    I keep the fresh water hose in one compartment and the sewer flush hose in another compartment.
    My first trailer had 3 dump valves.
    The current trailer has only 2.
    I generally close the valves, but have left the cover dangling…
    Keep the trailer closed to keep campfire smoke out, too. No carpet! Roll vinyl flooring throughout-
    I always leave the refrigerator and freezer doors open when the trailer is stored.
    I have a travel trailer and a tonneau cover on the truck bed.
    The original fuse for the tongue jack on my trailer was a 30A 250VAC slow blow fuse. I could not find this fuse anywhere- no parts house- no internet source- so I called the jack manufacturer and they sent me 3 of the correct fuse at no charge. That is good customer service/exceeding the customer’s expectations. I would have gladly bought the fuses.

  2. I always screw the two ends of my fresh water hose together with the Y & regulator. No worry about contamination.

    1. And no water dripping inside the storage compartment. Also don’t have to worry about little “critters” crawling inside the hose if they get into your storage compartment.
