I wouldn't think it would make a differance. I assume you sre talking about the same quick connects that you would use on your garden hose at home. (I don't know of any other kind either so there you go! lol) It's a good Idea. I'll give a try this year. In some cases I have to put a water pressure regulator on because the water pressure is to high. I've seen floods happen in RV's because they didn't use one. Good thing to have in the storage area.

I dont think it would affect the pressure either. I always use a pressure regulator as well, but other people I have camped with do not. I asked them if they were concerned about the water lines busting, they said no :shocked:.
Not me, I am not taking that chance

Anyway, they have these at camping world

I make a judgment call when I get to the campsite. If the pressure is fine then the regulator just slows down the water flow too much.

Thats more or less what I do too. Typically I use one, but there are times the water pressure is too slow and I take it off. I usually just put it on the start with, then if its too slow, I remove it knowing its not enough pressure to damage a line.

I use a quick connector but it is to protect the trailer water connector and hose threads from damage caused by cross threading versus the speed to attach the hose.

IMHO one needs to be careful when you test the presure and believe that it is low enough that you don't need the water regulator. You might have run the test when water consumption was high and like CG electricty voltage that can change over time.

Thanks for the advice Ruide-

I have wondered what the benefit of the quick connect was, other than convenience, but that makes perfect sense Ruide. Definitely something to consider
