Careful. If this is on the Challenger the Anderson water center can handle a max pressure of 100 psi. The owner's manual, however, states that anything over 55 PSI should be considered "excessive" and lead to damage within the fresh water system.

I use a 50 PSI regulator when connecting to campground water systems.

I would still use a regulator - if you do not and the pipes blow in your RV, you will most likely be liable for the damage and you will be pissed with all the water to clean up - better safe!

Make sure you use a regulator when hooking up to well water. Since deep well pumps have varied pressure, you want to be safe and have a regulator.

I have a adjustable regulator with a gauge. I like to see just what the pressure is and adjust from there. Just overly careful I guess.
