There's a difference in water systems. My city water connection goes directly to a faucet at the sink. The fresh water tank is not ever pressurized and I don't have a water heater, water pump, or shower. Pretty simple system. .
LOL yup my trailer is old but the CIty Water Connection is not original and it does have a check valve built into it as yours probable does if its the same as the one Scamp is currently selling on their website as I know that one does as well. Yup the piping is different on all the trailers based on options installed but if the trailer isnt to old & the water is going through a city water connection it probable has a check valve on it so no need to buy a separate one, which was my attempted point to the question asked.

Most of the shore water connection points have a built in reverse flow preventer if only to prevent water going out when you are using an on-board pressure pump. In the same vein, few have a pressure regulator. I always attach an inline pressure regulator at the hose bib.\, before my hose.

Most of the campgrounds in my area have anti siphon (Backflow preventers ) at the sill cock ,because it is required by the State to prevent the possible contamination of potable water. The anti siphons at the campgrounds do not provide pressure regulation , at least in the ones I've seen .
