When in a fixed location with mains pressure water available it is a big advantage to be able to use water direct from tap rather than through tanks and pumps. Nothing worse than running out of water when soaped up in shower. Make sure the pressure reducer only reduces pressure to the same as what pumps put out ie 45psi. (Some European valves reduce pressure to about 20psi) I had a European 20psi fitted at Bushtracker and found it to be next to useless, so I fitted a normal pumping type reducer with a stop valve at 45psi in its place, and it works great.

We had the "Old Design" mains inlet, must be made in the US as it has Yankee thread on it. Not a problem though, plenty of adaptors available to fit 1/2" hose.
It worked well, gave no problems.
This is the type seen on most vans. The new European model is getting some unfavourable reports, internal corrosion for one.
