The city connection is for water.....from the city (or public connection). If you are camping at a campground that has a water connection at the campsite (many many do), then you just need to hook up to the city connection for all your unlimited water needs. However, all the water you send down your drains, either from showering, washing, or flushing the toilet, will fill up the black and grey water tanks accordingly.
You only need to ever fill the RV's water reservoir tank, if you are camping where there will be no access to water at the campsite (aka boondocking, dry camping). When you are at these kind of places, then you will pump water from your RV's reservoir tank (using the RV's water pump) to supply your needs.......but are always going to be limited to the amount of water you placed in the reservoir to begin with.
Unless you are camping at a place without water, you needn't ever bother with the water reservoir or pump.
