When I bought my Scamp, the freshwater tank was missing. I have a 5 gallon 'jerry' can under the sink. I just take it out when I need to fill it. And I blocked the fill hole hole cover for sinks. I added a aftermarket windshield washer pump under the sink-if provides good water through a 1/4" line(ran the line through the 'handpump' faucet. Very easy to winterize too-just take out the pump. (I only have the sink in my unit-no bathroom-except the portapotty).

I've installed a 'water pump bypass' valve in my Scamp. It allows water to enter the tank when you are at a campsite and connected to city water. It sure is quicker and easier than using the stock water fill.

The only time I use the water tank is when I am boondocking. Rather than travel long distances with a tank full of water (appx. 100 extra lbs.), I fill up when I get to the destination, and refill by 6 gal. container if necessary to avoid hitching up and hauling the trailer to the water source. Otherwise, my first choice is to camp where water, electric and sewer are available.

I installed a new water filler and use the camco filler shown above on the hose, works great. I've never filled from a container, so I can't speak to that. I just fill up before I leave since I trust my water, and I have 40 gallons, so I've never ran out. Worst comes to worst, I have deck plates in the tanks for cleaning, so I could use them to fill if a container didn't work with the filler.
