There are quite a few 20VDC/120VAC pumps out there. Great if dry camping or in RV park. Amazon has a ton of them.
Here is one I've been looking at. Uses Dewalt batteries.

Here is a 20V/120V combo

Flipping the screen does not hurt anything. Did it for years and the dealers do too.
I have the 12V version of this. I know the OP wants 120V. But I got the 12V, cut the leads off and wired in much longer ones so I can hook to the house battery or the chassis battery.

Agreed - flipping the screen just depresses the check-valve. I had to do this to get Country Fill working in the beginning. Over the last year or so, the check valve seems to have loosened up so I no longer need to flip the screen.

But like someone said, hauling 7 gallon jugs back and forth isn't much fun. I bought one of those old foldable Luggage Carts from Walmart some time ago. So I can roll the jug rather that drag it.

I've also invested in several hundred feed of expandable hose and one of those Hose Bandits. Anything to avoid dragging jugs hundreds of feet at times.

I did that once and the park worker flipped out on me.
Because I didnít have a backflow preventer.
I couldnít make him understand that there was a check valve on the trailer and the tap at the post was spring loaded, and I had to actually stand there and squeeze the bandit tight while holding the spring loaded valve open to make the water come out.
He came back after and saw me carrying my jugs.

I have done that prior to the pump i have now, it's not that fast, also trying to keep the pumping time low to gain longer life span on the pump

I almost forgot. If you want to pump as well as possible, and don't mind the price then Davey is the pump to look at. Reliable as I have been told https://www.daveywater.com/us

This is the same system that I use. Same pump. I had been using 7 gallon Reliance jugs. I have replaced the jugs with a 325 gallon water tote. I use this is the summer as I'm living in my 264BHW BAJA travel trailer while I'm building an earth sheltered home in the Rocky Mountains.

As soon as I get a hard freeze I winterize my trailer and then use the 7 gallon reliance jugs.

Pump and plumbing safety for drinking water refers to contamination of the water while sitting idle in the pump. For a transfer event so long as you waste a few gallons to flush the pump, the fraction of a second the water spends in the pump will not pick up any contaminants.

We use to use a RV water pump hooked to a battery. The pressure switch had failed, but the pump still worked. I still can dump a 5 gal can into the city water fill. I am 63. I have 4 5 gal jugs and two 7 gal jugs. I will try it again this year.

If the package or the manufacturer states that it's not recommended for drinking water, I'll pass on it. When folks ask a question, I just state my opinion on the research that I have done on it for myself. It's up to each individual to decide for themselves.

We carry a 35gal water tank on our trailer, sometimes two of them and use the country fill to transfer that water into our Seneca. Ours can transfer 35 gallons in roughly 10 minutes. If we go thru both of the 35gal tanks, we just take an empty one in the Toyota and head into town, fill it up and transfer it back into the Seneca once back in camp.
