Filling up fresh water tank while camping
During our last two camping trips, I tired several methods to add water to the fresh tank while camping at sites that did not have hook-ups. I have a blue 7 gallon container with a spigot that I use. I found that cutting off a water bottle and setting the container on a ladder worked the best. Today while walking through a local hardware store, I looked down and saw a flexiable hose for a garbage disposal. It had soft rubber gaskets at both ends. I said what the heck and bought it for $12. Got home and set up the container and not only did the gasket slip right over the spigot but the other end fit snugly into the fill side of the trailer. We are going camping this coming week and I plan on using this set-up to add to the tank if needed. I did treat it in a bleach/water mixture just as I would if deployed. Yeah, prior military here and I have done this in the field to sanitze things many times. Will only be filling the container from a known clean source.
