You can get a marine pump at Harbor Freight for less than $40. Ours is a 12v and we can either use the truck batt for power or the batt on the trailer.

I currently use a 6 gallon jug to refill the tank. It take about 6 jugs to get a completely empty tank full with this method. I am considering some type of larger bladder tank and pump for the back of the truck as carrying jugs daily gets old.

Water hookups aren't common here. You fill up on your way in at a tap, then once in your site, there is one or more water taps in each camping loop/section that you use to get water. The only thing people around here do is bring enough hose (people commonly have 75' on hand) to hook up to the tap and back to their trailer, turn on tap and fill up the trailer. If you don't have enough hose, there is usually some nice enough to see your hose stop short before you've made it to the tap and offer you one of their hoses to add on so you can fill.

All the campgrounds we've been to have been able to just screw your hose on to the water tap fitting. We do have a Water Thief available in case we run into one that doesn't.

We also use a 6 gallon water jug. I usually wait until day 3 and then add 3 jugs daily. That's what my father always made me add when I was a kid so that's what I do now and I've never ran out of water.

Now with all of this extra fresh water being added, I just KNOW all of the grey water is being taken to the dump, right? Besides, you have to have grey water to flush out the tote after dumping the black. Yep, I'm right - All grey water is going to the dump.

We've got a portable grey water tank we add and it can be towed to the dump station to empty. It's pretty common around here to see the portable grey water tanks connected.

I carry two 5 gal. water jugs that I fill at the campground water spigot, then use a small hand pump (like a basketball pump) to transfer it into the trailer. Takes about 200 pumps to transfer each 5 gal. jug, and 12 jugs full to refill the tank. But I've developed great biceps from it (ha! ha!). I'm thinking about getting one of those transfer pumps that fits on a power drill to make the job a little easier. They're only about $20 @ Home Depot.

I use a 35 gal. tote to empty the grey/black tanks, which means 3 trips to the dump station (one for each tank). Takes a couple of hours for a complete changeover, but it gets the job done.

I always carried 2 5 gal jerry cans with spout in translucent white. Easier to carry two than one!
