Ultra high water pressures are common out west. Even in the flats of West Los Angeles, CA, the water pressure at my stick house is 85 psi. The campgrounds in and around Salt Lake City are notorious for very high water pressure -- 100 psi and up with surges even higher. While we were at SL we spied a unit with water running out of its undercarriage and from a door -- plumbing evidently burst. No one was at home. We turned off their water at the hydrant. Never did see what happened when they returned. Two precautions are needful out here in the west: 1. Always use a pressure regulator mounted at the campground hydrant 2. Monitor the pressure by attached an in-line pressure gauge at the outlet side of that regulator; 3. When you leave the RV for any appreciable amount of time, turn off your water at the hydrant, lest you get an unwelcome upon returning.
4 gpm is plenty, but 2 gpm is marginal. Most people aren't happy with the shower water flow at 2 gpm. The flow rate varies with the source pressure and the amount of pressure reduction you have dialed in. It appears the H560P can to 250 gph at 40 psi, but I would run it at 50-60 psi output, for better flow and pressure.
