I have not done this yet, but plan on using to transfer from gallon containers of oil, since the fill tube is in an awkward position. Here is the pump that I bought Amazon.com: Sierra Tools JB5684 Battery Operated Liquid Transfer Pump: Home Improvement

I am new to diesels, so I am not quite sure what you are talking about, the only one that I could see this being a pain is the GM since it is under the hood, both the Dodge and Ford were right next to the Fuel fill. Order of photos, Ford , GM, DODGE

If you have a Home Depot close by they sell a similar pump.

On the Berk motorhomes, there is a 10 gallon DEF tank in one the compartments with an upward opening door in which there is very little space to place a DEF container in order to fill it. Also, it is in the back of the coach and on the opposite side of most of the pumps. That is the dilemma that we are talking about.

If I may isn't easy to just look at the gauge to see how low it is. I think it's a 13 gallon tank, and as far as fill up use the pump. DEF in all my stops are in the truck lane anyway you have a fuel door on both sides so use the side that the DEF tank.🐸

Def pump on drivers side. Def tank on passenger side.
