My FR TT has the city water hookup on the starboard side and the water fill on the port side. The water fill you just pour it in with a hose, no screw on attachment.

XLRs like many others has a remote FWT and gravity fill won't work. It takes pressure source whether city or of our own design (a tank and pump) it ain't rocket science. If your requirement is to have gravity fill, shop another model or brand.

Filling a fresh water tank without a gravity feed is real easy so I see no need to "mod" the unit.

Filling a hose with bleach 1st and connecting to trailer works as long as you have pressurized water pushing the bleach.

If your buying a pump get the Wayne 12v type so you can fill your tank during dry camping.

So your saying for the past 20 years you have been jamming a flexible funnel in a 3/4" garden hose ??

There are several pictures on this topic showing the fitting.
