I would get and RV water pump that delivers somewhere around 2 gpm and wire it for how you are going to power it. I have a 12v water proof cigarette type plug on the utility side that is protected with a 10amp fuse, so that would be the deciding criteria, for me. I would probably spring for one of the larger bladder tanks that someone has mentioned. Yep, just shop around. With just a quick look I see a pump at HF that is claimed to pump 260 gph, which is probably bunk. But has clips and might last you all you need it to.

12 Volt Marine Utility Water Pump

If I did this alot, I would consider one of the better brands... shurflo or flojet.

Thanks. I think I am going to get the Little Giant pump with 3/4" ends. It says 5 gpm, and comes with battery cable connections with lots of wire.

I will just string the cables across when needed or wire a plug on that side when I get time.

This should work good enough. We don't do a lot of dry camping so this will suffice.

Don't get the "driil" type. They don't work (at least not for me...). I got this model from Menards - Sumer 1/12[IMG][/IMG]
I made my own hoses and it worked great on our "test trip" pumping 50gl

I have used this with good results...$35 from Harbor Freight....

12v Marine Utility Water Pump

It has garden hose thread on both sides... depending on application you might need a washing machine hose (female x female) to hook it to a bladder.

I use the 45 gal bladder as well for filling...

Question: Does your rig have the winterization port? If so, switch inlet to winterization, use a male x male hose adaptor and draw water right out of the bladder using the onboard pump.
