Sometimes people do run out of water, even after filling the FW tank on the way in. Depends on how long you stay and how much water you use per day, which also depends on how many people are using the water in the unit and how much each uses.

You are wrong. You switch the 3 way valve to draw water from the jug using the pump. The pump will then circulate the water threw out the trailer just as it would as if you were adding antifreeze to the trailer. Only difference is instead of sucking antifreeze you are sucking fresh water.
Some buy a cheap 12 volt water pump and pump water into the fw tank. They use a clean 32 gallon trash can and carry it in the back of their truck. Pump the water from it to the tank.
I under stand some need more water than their trailer will hold in a week. The jugs work fine for me and my dog, we don't use that much water. For someone not needing much the jugs work fine. Also works great for emergencies between CG or an overnight stop at a rest area.
