We bought a small stainless pump from north tools, slips into our external 35 gal tank and takes about 10 min to transfer water, we love it, it is 12v.

I got a 12v marine water pump to transfer water from containers into fresh water tanks....I use the same filter and hose that I hook up to spigot .... that way will catch any stuff from the pump or wherever before it goes into tank.....I carry a battery in the basement that I use for it or the inverter.....good luck

Just as a followup some federal parks will not let you hook to the community spigot with a hose, but I can run a 50 ft hose from intake side of pump to a can/bucket under the spigot and a 25 ft hose with filter hooked to outlet side of pump.....and not have to lug the cans around.....to fill fresh water tank.....

Applying for a seasonal camp site this year and if we happen to get one will need a way to refill the fresh water tank. Usually the water supply source isn't close enough to drag a hose to.

Thanks
I bought mine at princess auto approx $40. It has external threads on both ends, therefore you need to get a washing machine hose ( internal threads both ends ) to adapt to the inlet side of pump (12 volt). works great!

The 7 connector I got off of Amazon and it has an accessory outlet built in. I just bought a plugAnd connected the pumps wiring to it
