How to add water to fresh tank without hose?

Recently bought a Silverback 29RL and would like to know if anyone has found a way to add water to fresh tank without hose hook up. We used to do this with our previous trailer.

I was wondering if there is a way to use the 12v pump to fill the fresh water tank with a portable tank or even a bucket?

Funnel would not work in this case because inlet to fresh tank is a hose connecter inside service compartment.

I do like tentcamper 1 except I use portable 6 gallon tanks. I got the used pump from a scrap TT.

I have a similar pump (Northen Tool) and a 40 gallon roll-up bladder from CW.

I use an RV hose with a water tank filler on it from the pump to get the water to the fresh tank fill- you could that and just hook it up to the hose connector on your fresh tank inlet
