You should be fine over 2 days.
You've got a 30gl fresh water tank and a 6gl water heater (total 36gls). Make sure that you top off the FW tank to replace the six that went into the heater.
Now that you have full water and are at your site, you are going to learn how long it takes to go through your water. Its really personal.
Our first trip years ago didn't take long to run out of water and that was just the DW and me. We quickly learned to conserve but don't take it to extremes.
We don't use the shower often and prefer to use the camp showers if they are clean. If not, then navy showers in the trailer work well for us. You will have to teach the kids how to do this.
If you run low, its easy to fill a 5 gallon container from a nearby CG faucet for more water.
Since this is just 2 days its not that applicable but the biggest issue for us over longer trips is the gray water tank. You will find that this limits you more. There are ways to extend the GW capacity as well but that's a different topic.
