We live in north Colorado Springs - Northgate area.
It depends on where and when we are going camping for the water tank. Colorado State Parks list the months when water is available, and which sites have hook-ups (on the web). If we are going outside the window (usually summer months) for water, I fill the tank at home. If we don't have reservations for a site with hook-ups, we assume we won't get one, and again fill the water tank before leaving.
Bottom line: I'd rather travel with a water tank and hot water heater full of water than not have water, or have to tow the camper to fetch it.
At our previous house (between Black Forest and Monument), we had well water. This water would smell bad, especially in the hot water heater, after sitting for a couple of months. So I had to empty the water tank upon return home.
I'm hoping the water will stay clean and sweet for much longer, now that we are on city water.
PM me regarding get-together - can be either home. Next Sunday (15 May) is a good date for me.
