Water Thief Tip

Water Bandit RV Tip

In some cases when RVing and wanting to acquire fresh water, you may run into a source where your standard filling hose connection won’t work. Maybe the threads are worn, the wrong size or there are none.

I ran into this situation last fall in Joshua Tree National Park. They had perfectly good potable drinking water but the water taps had no threading to hook up my hose to. I used duct tape in that instance but it got me looking for a better solution.

What my research yielded was a nifty little device called a water thief or bandit. The way it is constructed allows you to attach it to many different types of taps and get your water out without making a mess. I’ve tried it and it works much better than tape. 😉
