YES!!!! I use a funnel, water bucket...AND...a piece of aquarium hose and a bungee cord.

Then again - I only fill it once a year and it's a 12 gal tank...

I have dumped more water in our TT with a five gallon jug than I care to think about. My new FW does not have a gravity fill but can self fill with Country Fill setting. I haven't tried it yet. My back feels better just thinking about it.

I ran out of water dry camping years ago. afterwards I immediately bought a 6gal plastic jerry can. that has come in handy! 5 trips mid camp trip and I have all the water I need.

My dad has about 100ft of collapsible hose and various adapter to get to the campground spigot.

I use a potable water hose that I connect to the water faucet... I also have a little device you connect on the hose and it tells you how much water (in US gal, Imperial gal and liters) has been used...

So I know how much water I am putting in before hitting the road...since I limit the weight by carrying only 2-3 gallons just to cover the road washroom stops
