Before we moved into the fifth wheel we had a 21 foot hybrid and traveled much more to sites that did not have central water. We carried 2 five gallon water jugs with us that we could fill up at the local water point.

I did a mod to my water system where I use the open ended hose for winterizing and use it to suck from the 5 gal jug. In order to do this I created a bypass with a short piece of pex tubing, inline valve and two tees. The bypass is tied into the suction of the trailer's water pump and the discharge feeds back into the suction line to the water holding tank on the upstream side of the isolation valve.

Kind of hard to describe. If you want I can send you a pic or a sketch. Works awesome and you're not having to hold up a jug and pour into the hole on the outside of the trailer.

Welcome Sapper. It would be awesome if you could attach the pic to this thread (using the little paperclip button above) or PM me with the pic. I'm interested in what you described here.

first time using it, i bought a brand new rubermaid trash can, a battery operated waterpump from lowe's and a 13 foot hose and i bungie cord the can to the back corner of the truck, fill it up with water and drop the pump into it and it pumps it right into the camper. just back up close enough so the hose will reach. works great and it is fairly inexpensive and easy to do. hopefully this helps
