I have been using a plastic funnel with a flexible spout and a collapsable coleman 5 gallon water jug. the only negative is that it is a two person operation. one to hold the funnel and the other to pour from the water jug. If you wanted to make it a one person proceedure, you could dedicate a plastic gasoline container with a flexible fill spout for water use only

I have a portable water jug that has a plastic spout. On the end of the spout I install a water bandit, then I attach a Camco water rv tank filler. I guess it takes about a long minute to transfer 5 gallons of water, and very little is lost.

We've done a couple of dry camps now. At first I was carrying two empty five gallon water jugs, a drill pump and a cordless drill. Then I found that if the drill was not charged before leaving home, we were screwed. So now I have a salvaged 12 volt water pump from a old TT, moded it with some extra water hose, long wires and some alligator clips. This allows me to set the water jugs on the ground, the pump on top of the water jugs, run the wires to the battery on the TV and pump the water into the trailer without having to carry something (ie ladder, table, etc.) to hold them up while the water fills the tanks. Takes a couples of trips to fill the 228 but nothing took hard. Ryan
