RE: Waste water totes for fresh water

Here's one more vote for the water bladder, instead of a tote. Tote would definitely work, but would be more expensive, and be much more of a pain to store and move around when empty than the bladder would. Not to mention the funny looks you'd get from your neighbors when they see you emptying water into your fresh tank from a tote that is typically used for waste water. I've thought several times of getting one of those water bladders as a way to refill the fresh water tank when we might need to. Might just do it one of these days. Would you really need a pump to transfer the water over? As long as the water bladder is sitting up higher than your fresh water tank, I'm thinking you might could gravity feed the water into the RV fresh water tank. If your RV is one that has a switch you can throw that will transfer water into the fresh water tank, and you have a winterizing kit on it, then you could just hook up the bladder (or tote) to where you would normally suck in antifreeze when winterizing, and use the RV pump to bring the water ito the fresh water tankn. Thats probably how I'd do it, if gravity feed didn't work. Our trailer did not have the capability of pumping into the fresh with the antifreeze pickup. That goes throughout the coach and not into the fresh tank. But I did some plumbing and with a couple of valves added...it dpes now. This is how we filled with our 5 gallon jugs. I think I would prefer a tank instead of a bladder.I think I can deal with the size. And yes, you may be right about the ability to gravity feed. Good thought! Thanks!

RE: Waste water totes for fresh water

Agree on using a proper bladder for your refills. I've never been one to care too much, what other people think. However, using an obvious sewer tote, to refill my fresh water supply, is not something I'd want my camping neighbors to witness. Jerry We thought about this. I personally don't give a #@#$ what my neighbors think. But We will definitely mark it for potable water only. I will look into the bladder though. It might be tough to make room in my short bed pickup. When we travel there's lots of stuff in there. Thanks for all of your thought and suggestions!

Waste water totes for fresh water

When my wife and I are on longer trips we often have to add more fresh water in order to shower, wash up, and do dishes. In the past we've used 2 x 5 gallon jugs to add fresh water. I devised a system where using the house water pump we can pump it into the fresh tank. But we are getting older and these jugs can be hard to deal with. We want to buy a new Rhino 15 gallon waste water tote in order to replenish our water as it has wheels and would make life easier. A friend told me that these are not safe for potable water. We don't drink from our fresh tank and won't store water in this tote. It would strictly be for topping off the fresh tank. Has anyone else done similar or have any input on doing this? Thanks!
