Water Question

We are new owners of a Casita and will be camping for the first time next weekend. We are going to a campground with water spigots, but no hookup. Do you recommend filling tanks after arriving or before leaving? Do campgrounds often have stations for filling tanks? Thanks for any tips.

Jennifer

Because you never know what you will find, we always carry a 5 gallon, collapsible, water cube and a funnel with as tube on it to easily pour water into the tank.

When underway we only have a few gallons in the tank for wash-up and the loo.

Thank you Bob. I'll look for a collapsible water carrier and funnel!

The water cube is a Coleman item, Wal-Mart usually stocks them in Camping goods.

We have a deep plastic dish tub that hold 6 one gallon milk jugs filled with water . The 6 jugs just fit in the tub so the jugs stay in place when traveling , The one gallon milk jugs are inexpensive ,easy to fill ,lift and pour. plus if a jug leaks the dish tub contains the spill. We also have a Coleman 5 gallon cube which we use in addition to the jugs ,when more water carrying capacity is needed

Registry
I carry around 1/3 full in the fresh water tank, and fill up at the campground. Many of the campground general use faucets do not have threads. If you want to fill your tank from them is is handy to carry a "Water Thief". I modified mine with a pair of hose clamps - a long hose will sometimes create enough back pressure to pop the brass fitting from the device & the rubber end from the faucet.

If you use 5 gallon buckets to fill your tank, be sure to try before you leave home to make sure you have a way to get from the bucket to the trailer...
