My son and I each purchased one of the 55 gal blue drums and then went on craigslist and purchased a shurflow water pump. I purchased one that was identical to the one in my TT. (That way I have a spare as well as a useful tool) Just hook it up to a small 12 volt battery like a motorcycle battery and you have a pressurized system that you can use as an outside dishwashing station, or to fill the tank on the TT.
No big deal to strap the drum in the back of the truck and then go to town to fill. Leave it in the truck bed while camping in the sun and makes a nice shower as well.
simple hose hookup to drop down in the barrel and hooked up a sink sprayer on the outflow side to do dishes or showers...easily screws off for filling TT.
Wife loves it, kids love it, easy peasy lemon squeezy.
Next mod for this setup is a small 12 volt charging solar panel that I can put on top. This will keep the MC battery topped of an ready for use without having to charge via gen.
