    While I'm doing my remodel ive been thinking about the water supply. I have no intentions of boondocking or carrying my own water (other than bottle water for drinking) so I would like to plumb the camper for city water only. I know id replace the faucet over the sink but I'm not sure how to run the plumbing from there. Would I just run a long flexible hose from the faucet to the outside hookup with plenty of slack to fold the counter over? Anybody else do this type of conversion? I would appreciate any thoughts and ideas you may have. Thanks!

    Yup that’s it. I needed about 50” of flexible water line so used a 30” and a 20” together.

    ....and for gawd sakes put a preasure regulator between the city water and your connection to flex line or you'll also have a shower when you turn the tap on.....lol

    Makes sense. Is there a certain kind I need to buy and are they preset or adjustable?
