That might work...

I do always carry a 6-ft step ladder in the truck when pulling the 5'ver.

Haven't needed to use the jugs in a couple years for filling the fresh water tank, but this winter (which, as you know, will be camping season down here), maybe I'll work something out!

Since I'm new to Arizona I now need to start discovering where the cool places are to park my RV for a few days at a time.

[QUOTE=Mountainmanbob;1895318]Unless we're in some really hick place electrical work would be inspected by a City or County building inspector. I'm referring to electrical work done at the RV factories - no inspections done by an AHJ (authority having jurisdiction). I've found a LOT of bad electrical workmanship in our TT that'd never happen in building construction. New electrical work in CGs def. gets inspected (while routine maintenance work doesn't).

Stayed in an older campground like that, pity the guy that was on the downhill end of the pipe the Sunday morning I was there.

Why so? What happened for your pity that Sunday morning?

One more reason why RV'ers SHOULD NOT leave any of their tanks open until it is time to dump.

Unless you like wet shoes...
I just this weekend ran into this issue where I needed to refill and went out and got a Scepter 5 Gallon can with spout, which is just like a plastic Jerry Can but without all the stupid "safety features", the nozzle goes right into the fill port and easily dumps pretty much the entire contents of the jug and you can use the spout to support some of the weight. It could use another handle on the back but it's pretty good, and it has a vent so the water flows without gurgling.

(got mine for $30 at West Marine out of desperation, but it looks like you can get one for $20 including shipping)

I have 5 very similar water cans. 6 gallons a piece with a little shorter spout. Cans empty quickly into the tank and easily done by one person. No mess. Plus they fit perfectly in the front of the truck bed along with two gas cans.

We boondock mostly and these allow us to have 50 gallons in tank plus these 30 gallons extra before we have to find somewhere to fill them up.

While dry camping we typically use 90-100 gallons a week for the two of us. Love these cans.

I do have friends that use different types of pumps. All much slower than just dumping them in
