Alright Jeeper! I can see you are concerned about shoe leather and saving our backs...I like that and I like your creative juices. GREAT solution! Another item on my "To-Do" list. So many fun projects and so little time. Thanks. Now about the beer that "was" in that fermenter......

I use a Fill line made from a cap off a 5 gallon water tote available at any home store. We use the bottled water for drinking and making coffee.
The empty bottle is used to fill the fresh tank from the potable spigot at the campground.

5 gallon filler mod pictures from travel photos on webshots

I have a foldable tote that I use to wheel the bottle around. 6 trips empty to completely full, but most times I will top off every few days with 3 trips.

Not visible is a small hole in the plastic cap (that goes through the plastic but not the foam seal) for air to enter the bottle to increase flow.

Hose goes into filler; invert bottle.

If you want to pump water into the unit a drill pump and a cordless drill will solve the problem. Most people have cordless drills and the pumps sell for less then $20.

This is also an idea I had as well and I think those should work just fine too. I just had the stock pump already after replacing it for a bigger one.
