External Water Reservoir - DIY

I have just completed documenting the construction of an External Water Reservoir I have used on my Boler for the past 3 years. This is an easy project using parts available at your local home improvement store for anyone who has a cracked, broken or missing water tank in the FGRV

I saw yours last year at St Malo but was so impressed with your Boler that I did not pay attention to the water tank . Hope you make to St Malo again this year so I can meet you again and thank you again

Neat mod. I am thinking something external that can be thrown in the tug to make a water run when boondocking might be a nice thing to have.

What a great idea!

I was wondering how I was going to install a very simple water supply in my Scamp 13...something maybe one-step up from a 1-gal jug!

Now I know! This system will be a BIG step up!!
