Default Water pump accumulators

I did a quick search for other posts dealing with accumulators but didn't see one, so here goes!

I'm thinking of adding a accumulator to my 189FBS to help with pump cycling and somewhat with noise. Has anyone else installed one, and if so, how well has it performed and what model is it? They all say 20psi for pressure, but our pump pressurizes the line to 40psi, so I don't know if that is an issue or not.

I haven't taken possession of our F-210UDS yet but I can tell you installing an accumulator in any pumped water system will make it just like city water as far as flow goes, I installed one in my last camper (StarCraft) and it made all the difference in the world.

Default Yup

I put one in our 2010 189FDS. A Sureflow 710ml unit. The 40 psi pump pressure compresses the air bladder and the 20psi pushes the water out when the pump isn't cycling. Works well. I have it plumbed in with a single line in the pressure line from the pump. Go for it.
