I learned the hard way last year to use one...

We hooked up at a resort that had awesome water pressure...

Went away for the day and came back to a flooded camper...

The pressure was so great it was pushing past the shut off valve in the toilet and over flowing (clean water thank god) into the camper. WHAT A MESS !

Now I dont go anywhere without one, If I dont have one, I fill up the tanks and dont run on city water connection...

Thank GOD it didnt break a line, would have been a hundred times worse at full pressure leak than slipping past a valve!

I reccomend them to everyone I see without one now !

Any other stories?

I was told from the beginning to use a pressure regulator so I have,but two years ago we were camping and I had a plastic quick connect fitting crack on my hose while we had been away and came back to a flooded campsite,I have since changed all my fittings to brass and when I leave the camper for a whole day I shut off the water heater and water now.

for those willing to spend a few extra bucks homedepot and lowes sell adjutable regulators,one is made by watts and the other wilkins you just need to get fittings to adapt to your water hose then you have a fully rebuildable and adjustable regulator.If using the small cylinder type regulators atleast get a brass one the plastic ones can crack.
