In this video, a few tips and tricks for bringing water to and filling the RV tank at our boondocking campsite. I demo myself filling my Aquatank 30-gallon water bladder at a State Park water spigot with no threads for the hose. For that, I use a rubber connection device called a Water Bandit. So that I know when I have added 30 gallons to my bladder, I use an inline water meter.

Back at the campsite, I use a 12V RV water pump to draw the water out of the bladder and into our RV freshwater holding tank. Before it enters the tank, the water passes through a Clearsource 3 stage water filtration system I have attached to my trailer’s bumper. We also utilize an Acuva LED-UV water purification device for our drink water inside the RV.
