Just purchased a new Cruiser Aire. What's the easiest way to fill the holding tank with fresh water if you aren't at a campsite with water hookups?

Water weighs 8 lbs per gallon, so a large container will be heavy. If you use 1 gallon jugs it will help but take quite a time. Other option is they sell collapsible water bags that you can carry in the back of your TV. But you have to get close to the fill hole with the TV.

I use a 30 gallon cooler that has hose threads on the drain port. I have a 12V pump to transfer the water to the holding tank.

Most campsites have potable water available at their trailer dump stations. You fill your tank on the way in then proceed to your campsite.

I never fill at a dump station I don"t trust that the guy before me has handled things in a proper sanitary way. It does not take much E-Coli. JMO.

Most campgrounds that don't have water at the site do have water spigots placed in various locations that you can stop at and fill your fresh water tank before you actually park. I wouldn't be really excited about using one at the dump station either. However, most of the one I have seen at dump stations are clearly labeled non potable.

I fill at home before I go.... Hook my white hose to the garden spigot. I suppose a container and funnel could be used. When I showed horses we carried 5 and 10 gallon water jugs. Some had a collapsable funnel.

Something like this. Or this


I would get enough to fill your tank if it is a significant distance otherwise get enough to do half and make 2 trips. The bigger concern if refilling your fresh water tank then becomes dumping the grey tank. You can get one of theseEdited by: anaro

I always fill up in the campground on the way to my site. Remember to turn on your pump and open the taps a few times so the water lines and hot water tank will fill up, so you will get the benefit of 6 to 10 more gallons. If I am at the campsite for a week or so I have a 45 Gal plastic drum that bleached out, put a outlet spigot on it and with a small pump can refill my tank. That and a tote will allow me to stay stationary for quite a while.
