My bedroom slide is directly over the water panel, so lifting jugs would be troublesome at best.

I've used this method boondocking twice, since I use a CPAP machine I have to run the generator every day anyhow, plus refilling usually happens pretty late in the trip so I'm already needing a recharge.

I've considered converting to a gravity fill like I used to have, but it's not quite worth it at this point.

I carry a 50 gallon water tank in the bed of my truck. It's hard plastic. I also have a 45 gallon collapsible water tank. I use a 12 volt pump to move water from both containers into the 5er. We boondock most of the time. If you have that docking station, I understand that you move a lever to fill the fresh water tank or to use a hook up. The pump will pump your water when that lever is in the fresh water tank position. My hard tank is low enough to put my tonneau cover over it. You will need a potable hose to get to the pump and then a potable hose to go from pump to trailer. You will need to figure out how to power the pump. I have a plug in that fits into my 7 pin connection at the back of my truck for that. It sure beats lifting 5 gallon containers. If you really want to get fancy you can use air pressure to move the water also. My hard tank has 2 screw on lids. Both lids have a spring loaded button on the top to allow air into the tank to gravity feed. I converted one to accept an air valve like the ones in tires. Then I used my compressor that I always carry. There might be a problem in that the compressor might not be big enough to pump the water through the fitting in your panel.

Thanks for all the help guys!

This is what I came up with. I got a 1/10th HP transfer pump at lowes for $88.
Worked like a charm.....
