I fitted a 12 volt outlet to the back of my trailer and use a portable 12 volt pump to move water from my wheeled 8 gallon water container into the trailers potable water system. Works slick and only takes about 60 seconds the empty the wheeled container. Using the wheeled container saves having to lug the water from the nearest water outlet; a lot easier on the back as I get older.

I picked the pump up at Princess Auto.

Water pump

Thanks Barry, I find some real bargains at Princess Auto and have one of their 2014 catalogues. Can you describe the pump you have? I could route a DC extension through the driver's side outside hatch to power the pump when I need it.

I also see a 11 GPM Diaphragm hand pump for $50 that weighs 2.2 lbs if the DC pump should weigh or cost too much.
