Hi Everyone. Well, after 15 years the RV-Dreams Community Forum is coming to an end. Since it began in August 2005, we've had 58 Million page views, 124,000 posts, and we've spent about $15,000 to keep this valuable resource for RVers free and open. But since we are now off the road and have settled down for the next chapter of our lives, we are taking the Forum down effective June 30, 2021. It has been a tough decision, but it is now time.


We want to thank all of our members for their participation and input over the years, and we want to especially thank those that have acted as Moderators for us during our amazing journey living and traveling in our RV and growing the RV-Dreams Family. We will be forever proud to have been founders of this Forum and to have been supported by such a wonderful community. Thank you all!!

Recommendations Needed!


Looking for recommendations for our new to us DRV Atlanta! Water filter system at the pedestal? Water pressure gauge/regulator? Surge protector - Progressive Industries EMS PT50X still considered one of the best? Thank you!!

We have a 2 canister water filter setup from https://www.rvwaterfilterstore.com/ with a 5 micron and 1 micron filter, since we have an undersink filter for drinking water.   They also sell excellent water hoses that will last a lifetime.  The best water pressure gauge/meter is the Watts LFH560, but anything Watts is great.  We also have the Progressive.

I would recommend at least two 25-foot lengths, and a third would be nice to have .... just in case.

Thanks Howard! Someone on another forum suggested a "Renator" water pressure regulator for $30.00. Theres quite a price difference between the Renator and the Watts. Is this basically a case of "you get what you pay for?"

The Renator will work, but normal prices are more like $50 to $60 in my memory. They are not as heavy duty as Watts. A rule of thumb, if someone is telling you to get something cheaper, price is often more important to them than quality.

Also on water hoses. I agree with Howard about two 25' ones, but also carry a 10' one. In freezing weather I use the 10' if I can, so the least hose is exposed. I also find it better to add 10' to a 25' one when needed. RV water hoses only last a couple years, unless you get the custom made ones from RV Water Filter Store. Friends have bought 35' ones from them and used them for decades, the length the store recommends.
