New X19H owners with lots of questions

We are heading out on our first camping trip in our new x19h and will have lots of questions. (We are not new to camping but new to RVs ). After sanitizing the water tank, should we fill or partially fill the tank before starting out because the water supply at the campground only has a hand pump?
Thanks for any help.

I have never seen a camp ground that only had a hand pump. I know they exist, but I have never been to a campground that didnt have water. It is a good idea to carry enough water in your tanks for enroute stuff. Ill usually keep 7-10 gallons in there. We are very good at using our camper enroute for all of our needs. Toilet, food, drinks, brushing teeth, etc.

Worst case scenario... I have used fresh water sources at a lot of different truck stops and also been able to use the waste and water facilities at nearby state parks.

...she started talking about how I never listened to her or somethin, I donno, I wasn't really paying attention...

Depending how far you have to travel to the Camp ground I would fill my water tank. we have a couple of camp grounds that have hand pumps but one has so much iron in the water I wont put it in my trailer. I take a water can and fill it and heat water over the camp fire and use it for dishes and things like that and save tralier water for everything else.
