WRT what pressure to set the regulator at: I think the best way is to look at the water pump and see what pressure it is rated for, and set the regulator to around that pressure. Setting the regulator much higher than that, risks jamming the non-return valve in the pump. Unjamming the NRV is not that difficult, but it entails uncoupling the pump from the plumbing and disassembling the pump to access the valve. Something that I'd prefer not to have to do very often.

I appreciate this threat since I am having the same problem. I have a pressure regulator on my hose but it leaks inside the RV at the city water attachment. The attachment seems to be flimsy at best. In my opinion it is not a good design so your ideas are helpful. Thanks

Ok. I finally got everything replaced. I just used the white one with the brass connector. I know i didn't need teflon tape but i put some anyway. Swapped over the other hoses. The gravity fill had some type of plumber's putty on it. Didn't add any. Do i need anything there? It isn't a pressurized connection so i figured it was fine.

Oh, and the brass connector kind of wiggled around in the square cut out it was in so i epoxied it in place on the back.
