I checked Scamp's site and saw NOTHING about them furnishing the regulator. I just spoke with "Micah" at the Scamp factory and they do *NOT* install a regulator.

I would never hook my Scamp up without a pressure regulator at ANY campground! I've seen some at nearly 100lbs of pressure as I take a gauge with me.

And here is what is said about how manufacturers test:

The formal testing procedures performed at the factory during manufacture included pressurizing the system (with air or water) to 80-100 psi for ten minutes.

To each his own but again, I would not subject my Scamp to those high pressures (150 lbs ) as some stated on here they will do. And IF you do, to me, you are flirting with disaster!

Good info here about screwing on regulator at hose bib. Can't imagine why you wouldn't want such inexpensive preventative maintenance. I would not want to replace water lines and clean up messes from a blow out if it could be avoided with an $7 or $8 brass fitting from Wally.

I too use the water filter shown by Floyd. Even when not connected to city water (fill up big blue jugs and fill water tank that way). Most places, I have no city water anyway.
