My PLAN-B is to always have these two items with me for times I have to get water at the bath house spigot...

Thanks for all the replies and ideas. I called the park and they said that the campsite spigots will not except a hose connection. They said there is freah water available from a hose fitting at the dump stations.
We fill our tanks at home, even if we are going to have full hook-ups. we have come across parks where we don't like the taste of the water. If you don't feel comfortable with the extra weight, most places have a fresh water fill on the way in, not always by the dump station. Probably a good idea to check with the park when you make reservations, or at some point before you get there.
We just spend 5 nights in a PA state park, electric only hook-ups. We were in the site next to the water spigot (purposely picked). Half way through we ran a hose from the spigot to our trailer to refill our tanks. Daily one rig or another was pulling up to the spigot and parking to fill their tank. The parks main freshwater fill was a good two miles down the road at the ranger station and in an odd corner of the parking lot, not a convenient place to go fill the tanks.
Yes, I have seen people stay hooked up to a common spigot at other parks, it is rather inconsiderate. but if you are just going to refill and disconnect, that is fairly common practice, I wouldn't worry about it.
