Tote-n-stor for fresh water

First and foremost, we never drink the water in the fresh water tanks. We use bottled water for drinking.

While dry camping at a CG with no hookups but a dump station and fresh water, I use a 25 gallon tote-n-stor to empty the grey/black tanks and take them to the dump station....rather than take down the entire trailer. This requires a trip or two but works GREAT. Much less hassle.

To replenish the fresh water tank I was thinking of getting a 32 gallon unit. I have a water pump to get the water from any container into the trailer tank. I've done it with buckets before but want more capacity at one time.

Has anyone done this? or anything like it?

Thanks!

If it works for you why not. I have never used my FW tank. But I wouldn't want to tear down and move my trailer to fill tank or dump black tank.

Ok I just wanted some general affirmation. And maybe not someone going "GOOD GOD NO!" for something I missed. hahaha

I do it by carrying jugs from the nearest campground tap. I have never been far enough away that I had to actually drive to a tap.
I have thought about one of those big fold up portable "water bags" but after I thought about it , it would get all musty an slimy inside from not being fully dried. So I continue to carry jugs. Gives me something to do, and I usually have help.

I have one of these tanks. Leg Style Storage Tank, 35 gal. - For Life Out Here i put a valve on it and use a pump to transfer to the tank. It fits perfectly in the bed of my truck. I purchased it for our old TT that only had a 30 gallon tank. I still bring it with us and fill it at the campground just in case.

I saw one of those tanks and it looked interesting. I opted for the wheels though. Might be useful

And I was using 5 gallon buckets but it was taking forever to fill the 83 gallon tank.

I'm coming to understand that there are two types of RV'ers out there.
1) Folks that pick a nice campground and stay for a week or two.
2) Those of us who like to hit the road and financially support the oil industry. We never stay anyplace more than 3 nights - either on weekend camping or on longer vacations which typically are cross country trips.

So for me - having to dump a tank or fill a tank has never been a problem even with our last TT which only had 30 Gal. tanks. My new unit has 65 gal - I have NO idea what I'm going to do with that much water :-).
