Learned a lesson about water

I discovered that many of the fresh water tanks available at CGs do not have sufficient pressure to fill YOUR fresh water tank with a hose.

Along with the emergency black water storage tank, I've added a little water pump and hose to my backup planning. I was able to fill up my tank from water jugs I filled at the CG fresh water tank.

I have a battery powered kerosene siphon pump to transfer water from the jug if & when needed. Just haven't figured out where I want to store the water jug yet in our new trailer.

Wal*Mart stocks 6 Gal water jugs.

I grabbed 2 of 'em and a 120V transfer pump from Tractor Supply 'cuz the water for our campsite is 1/2 mile away.

I used to actually carry a separate rv pump to use when transferring water from a tank I carried to my internal tank. That way I also had a spare pump if we had pump issues. I also used it when dry camping to pressurize the camper through the city water inlet using my external tank. It just gave me more options.
