So, I picked up and 12v self priming pump as the back up plan if the AF plan doesn't work. I bought the adapter to go from the 1/2 thread to a std hose. I will test and see if my current pump will fill tank and/or allow system use. I'll keep you posted.

I got something like this years ago (drill pump).

You hook it up just like any water pumped from a well, set your system to fill, and run.

Be sure to run some diluted bleach through it first.

That will work for sure but just some thoughts.... The drill powered pumps I've seen aren't very fast. Be prepared with a spare drill battery or 2. Hopefully you can lock the drill trigger on and lay it down while you sip your
cold brewskie and watch the water level in your carry jug.
I suggest you test it at home by maybe just pumping a 5 gallon bucket and time it. That will also let you know about drill battery life as well as drill motor heat.

The shower hose into the gravity fill port is a winner if your outside shower
is on the same side as your tank fill. Mine is on the far opposite side
