Filling Fresh water tank

DW and I are going on a float trip next weekend. The place we are staying has Electric. The also have fresh water and dump station in a place that neither my wife nor i feel comfortable pulling the TT. Friends are scared to drive it in thier cars and I always put my truck in 4x4 to navigate in years past.

What i would like to do is fill my fresh water tank using the 2 7 gallon water containers I have. Are there any suggestions on how to do this without pouring most of my water on the ground?

thanks in advance for the help

A water pump.




Couple of short hoses and some wire to hook it up.

Or this....I use this when my son is along to lift the jug. I screw the cap onto the jug, I shove the end into the fill hole, then he lifts it onto his shoulders. Gotta open the vent. Fills 6 gallons in under a minute. The hose length is about 3'.

A basic syphon hose will work if you can get the port tank above the fresh tank inlet.

what if you have no fresh tank inlet? i've looked everywhere. the FR manual is no help--merely alludes to filling before you leave if you intend to boondock. duh. i would--just point me in the direction of the fresh tank fill! surely there IS one?

water tank

Ahhhh, whole different problem. I have a kountryaire motorhome and if yours is like mine (most motorhome basics are the same) where you attach a water hose in the water cabinet, you should find a a knob right beside the hose connection. This one allows you to fill the potable water tank.
