Refilling Fresh Water Tank With Jug


I have a question about my 27BH - may apply to other models as well. But coming from my 2005 Roo, whenever my fresh water ran out I would just refill using a jug since I filled via a connection on the outside that water could just be dumped in... Having a brain fart and can't think of the correct term...

But on the new one, I've got a fresh water fill up on the rear where I screw my hose to the camper and let it fill. How would I go about filling it if I run out and don't want to take camper back to water station? Am I completely missing something or is there an attachment that I would need to get to make a jug work?

Haven't ran out yet, but thinking ahead. Only had the camper out 3 times so far since buying it. Need to have some warranty work done, so hopefully that goes smooth..

We use the "winterization" kit to suck out of the water jug/bottle/bucket and use the outside shower, screwed to the water fill port. Turn on the water pump and let'r rip. If dry camping you might want to plug into your truck, with it running, to keep from draining the battery.
