I went on my first trip of the season, from Thursday to Sunday, no power, parked in a parking lot. I filled up my water tank before I left since I knew there wouldn't be water. The PL sure didn't pull like when she is empty, and my van seemed to struggle a bit. I am not sure there is any other option in this case but thought I would put it out there since so many of you have such great solutions. What do you do when you are going somewhere with no water or power?

When going to a location close by that I know will not have a water source I fill the tanks at home. When going to a location more than 50 miles or so away I will fill it up someplace closer to where I am going. Sometimes you need to ask the locals - some full service gas stations will have a water tap - some rest areas as well. If camping at an actual park that has designated camping sites but no water at each site they will often have a water source someplace in the park or a dish washing station.

I carry an extra hose so I have lots of length and a Water Thief - it has come in handy a number of times when the water source has no way to screw the hose onto the tap.
