VS Water pump??

I'm looking at the Shurflo Smart Sensor variable speed pump.
There is:
4.0 gpm at 50psi

5.7 gpm at 65psi

Will the 65 psi version overtax my plumbing?

We ALWAYS use a regulator at every CG we go to. It cuts our water pressure down to 40-45PSI and that's the max pressure we'll run in our camper.

Personally, I wouldn't even try the 65PSI pump.

I agree with Gary. You don't need household pressure in a trailer. More pressure will likely also mean more flow and empty the fresh tank and fill the waste tanks faster.

I agree with Henry.

In redoing our trailer I considered not using the original plumbing because the inside diameter of the pipes is small. My wife nixed larger water pipe because it would mean more flow and require larger holding tanks.
