I needed a new gauge for my Watts and was shocked at the price of them today. Watts is the best but be prepared to pay $$$! I think I might be tempted to try the Valterra adjustable for under $60 on Amazon.


You can buy a gauge at any hardware store.


That's exactly what I did but you may be surprised at the lack of availability at any hardware store. Back mounted are harder to find but can be had online. It was in my search for the gauge that I saw the prices for a new one. A cheap gauge replacement was the answer for me and a lesson to store my regulator right side up so the oil doesn't drain out of it.

I have one of each. The pressure reducer, found at a campsite, & a bought adjustable.

Don't use either one. I am one of those, apparently rare, campers who use water from their tanks exclusively.

When traveling life is much simpler the fewer the connections that need to be made.

LIke you, I almost always use water from my tank. The exception is when I have one of my teenage granddaughters camping with me. THEN, I hook up to shore water with my Watts 263 and open the gray water drain into the dump station. I am not going to try to teach a teenage girl about water rationing.
