How to fill up fresh water tank?

On my old class C, the fresh water tank was filled in thru an opening where I could either put in a garden hose, with or without a small hose attached to it, and fill it up. When dry camping and not having access to a hose, but having access to a faucet, I could use one of these water jugs that I bought from Wal-Mart to fill it back up if needed.



On my 377, the opening for the fresh water tank seems to have some kind of back stop, not to mention it is at an odd angle, for anything like this water jug to work. Does anyone know how I can add more water in the tank when dry camping if I do not have access to a hose?

I obviously did something wrong because the picture of the water jug does not show. But if you click on the square, it will take you to Wal-Mart's web site where you can see the picture.

Could you use the antifreeze line (pump in bypass) then outdoor shower head to the fresh water fill. I've got an adapter 3/4 MH to 1/2 MIP.

Get yourself one of these. I installed longer leads on mine, otherwise it's great straight from HF. 12 Volt Utility Water Pump

Thanks, I appreciate the info.

I am not very handy so I am having a hard time picturing how these options work.

Chill960: I am assuming I attach the adapter to the outdoor shower head and then attach that to the fresh water tank, correct? But, then what? Since I live out West in Cali we, or at least I, don't use the anti-freeze bypass, and as a result not quite sure how that end of it all works.

MEHoffman: Do I attach one end with a hose to the fresh water tank fill, and attach a hose to the other end of the pump and just put it in the water jug or whatever my water source is and pump in the water that way from my water jug/source? If that's the way, I like that. Do you just hook the pump up to your chasis battery?

Yes that is exactly what you do. I use my truck battery as the battery on my current TT is tough to access. That is also why I extended the leads on the pump.

Yours looks similar to my '02 Georgetown except both the city water hook-up and the fresh-water tank fill on mine are female garden hose couplers. I usually fill the FW tank at home before a trip because we have such good quality city water here. I just run the white hose from an outdoor faucet to the "fresh-water fill" connection and fill the tank. The tank, which is translucent plastic, is in a bedroom closet, so I can see how much I've filled it.

We rarely have to use CG city hook-up for a refill as we use CG water for everything except drinking and making tea and coffee.
