We have been full-time RVing for 11 years now and love it! Early on, we embraced dry camping, aka “boondocking.” Off-grid camping allows us to stay in the most picturesque locations with plenty of space around us. We also save a ton of money versus RV Park hookup sites. Many of the places we stay at are even free.

Nice Camping Sites

Luckily our Keystone Cougar fifth-wheel trailer came with a 60-gallon water tank and three 38-gallon waste tanks. Large tanks allowed us to easily camp for over a week or more before getting fresh water. And even longer before needing to dump the waste. But now, with the recent addition of a few handy items, I’m able to keep the trailer camped in one spot for an extended time and use our pickup truck to haul fresh water in and waste out.

This video shows you how that is done using a 60-gallon collapsible freshwater bladder, sewer macerator pump, and 36-gallon waste tote tank. Furthermore, I detail how I filter and purify our drinking water, plus a few other water-related odds and ends.
