I use gravity and a 5 gallon container. I made a stand to hold the jug so I don't have to hold the 45 or so pounds up while it drains. Works great.Click image for larger version

We have 125' of hose and 6 collapsible 5 gallon jugs with a folding red wagon. One or the other works for us.


Happy Camping!

I have bottle like Kanga 99. I found a funnel that is flexible & fits in the fill spout. I have a 4 ft. table that we use in front of the couch. Put it in front of the spout & use 2 milk crates to hold the water bottle. Works great.

I bought a 12 volt pump from harbor freight. It will empty a five gallon container in one minute from the tailgate of my truck. I got tired of lifting and holding the heavy five gallon container. I have four of the containers. Nine dollars at Walmart. The pump was $31 and I already had the hose in the camper

But you have a 12 volt pump built into your camper. All you need is a hose to go from your water container to your campers antifreeze input

Only newer campers have the AF hookup.

You and OP have newer campers. So, ...the response was? Now, my last HTT was a 2010, it did have a AF hose, but was not a water hose inlet, but could be mod'd.

My point was that not everyone reading these threads have newer TTs. People with older TT's are also reading this to figure out how to deal with this issue. You kind of made your statement as if everyone has an AF connection. Probably not your intent, but I wanted to point it out before some newbie goes out and starts trying to find the AF connection that he doesn't have.
