12v Water pump on regular 30 amp hookup

We have some areas where we can camp that have 30 amp power but no water hook up. I would like to use the water tank with the 12v pump if possible. Can I do this without buying a marine battery and hooking it up?

Would like to use the water tank and try it out.

I have a 2008 Jayco Jay Series 1007 model.

Thanks,
Mike

It will work just fine. The battery is only required when towing for the breakaway brake system and a tongue jack. Or when no shore power is available, obviously.

I keep my brothers camper in my driveway during the summer. I plug the 30A cord into my house and then put a few gallons of water in the tank. That way when I'm in my front yard or working on/in the camper I can use the camper bathroom instead of going inside.

Yep,
Your converter takes some 110V feed and changes it to 12V to run all your 12V stuff when plugged in.

You're all set.
