That's the kind of ingenuity that got Apollo 13 home!

I don't have an outside shower in my 2011 Georgetown 327DS but have done the same thing using my water hose and a faucet to hose adapter. The water pump pulls in water from a jug, through the winterizing hose; pressurized water flows out the bathroom sink, through the water hose, and finally into the fresh water fill port for the water tank.

When I dewinterize, I always make sure to also flush the antifreeze input area in case I need to use this technique to fill the water tank.

Quick Connect Spray?

No outdoor shower on my '13 24R, but there is a sprayer and quick connect. If I had a male QC adapter to fresh water hose I could run the hose around to the tank fill and do it that way.

There seem to be more than one type of hose QC. Does anyone know what type of QC connector I need that would be compatible with the stock connector on my '13 Solera 24R?

Yes, but I want to attach a longer potable water hose to reach across to the tank fill, so wanting to buy a compatible QC male adapter.

If you take the nozzle of a regular hose will fit.
