This is what I use. Water is heavy, I like the wheels. I pump it into the TT with a cheap 12v pump I got from harbor freight. Figured I'd always either have the camper battery or the one in the truck for power.
Not sure if hyperlink works. Using my phone. Look up reliance portable water container on Amazon. 8 gallons on wheels with a collapsible handle.

My parents new 5er, does not have provisions for "Country fill" so Dad had an old RV water pump and just put alligator clamps on it and used hoses to transfer from his jugs to the tank when camping at sites without water connections.

I have a 12 volt pump sitting out in the garage ,going to take it camping and going to get the boys to show me how to do the wires,
It should be easy I have a plug in in the front storage, to recharge the battery for the boat, off the solar.

O but the jugs work good too, if you have the grandsons helping you and you by mistake spill water all over them.

We use a small 12 volt submersible bilge pump which is small enough to fit into a blue Aquatainer jug, and two alligator clips on the wires to connect to the trailer's battery, and a length of clear hose. Put the pump into the full Aquatainer, put the hose into the trailer's tank, connect the battery leads, and stare at it as the water is transferred. Pretty simplistic, but it cost us about $12 for all of the parts.

But this guy had upgraded the pump in his trailer and used the old one as part of a water transfer system where he can easily transfer water from a portable container to the onboard tank.

We use 7 gallon Aquatainers. They store under the bed when empty, and I replace the digit with a piece of 3/4" tubing insert the tubing into the gravity fill, crack the vent on the container, and in it goes! It empties the container in about 15 seconds.

Yeas, I have corresponded with him on other RV forums. It's not just a hobby for him, it's an obsession.

We boondock alot with my in laws. My father in law got tired of refilling his Trailer from five gallon Jugs and bought a cheap rv Pump, added some hoses and some wires to connect to his pickup and no more sore backs. He switched from five gallon Jugs to fifteen gallon too.

My new trailer has a Country Fill option and I was almost giddy when I found out.
