Has anyone tried this?

Was working on getting our new camper ready for our first trip of the season this past week, and was ensuring that we had everything we needed for a weekend of dry camping at Worthington State Forest next week. We have been using a water bladder to refill our FW tank and have a 12V transfer pump.

Our new camper has a built in winterizing inlet... has anyone tried to draw FW out of a bladder or out of a container using this inlet? I am thinking it should be super easy, just need a long FW hose and enough elevation from back of truck for the pump not to struggle with head pressures....

My daughter has a TT on her ranch in CO. She has a 300 gal tank on a small 3' tower. Just run a hose from the outlet to the shore water inlet and let the onboard pump do it all.

Shore water inlet and pump will not work together. The pump will close (or try to close) the shore water inlet valve and the shore water inlet will try to close the water pump valve. They will fight each other. The winterization inlet should work but make sure there is no winter pink juice in the line. I never use the stuff but that's what I get for living in FL.
