RE: Transferring fresh water when dry camping

Here's a thread of the details I posted elsewhere. Before upgrading to the larger bladder. 20 minutes 60 gallons timed. https://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/1480651-water-bladder-tansfer-setup.html#post17029807 Link after upgrading. https://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/1440415-national-forest-trip-14.html?highlight=Seaflo#post18634329 Thanks Itinerant1. That's what I'll do.

RE: Transferring fresh water when dry camping

Hi Itinerant1. That's what I want to set up. I have a 45 gallon water bladder. Looks like a Seaflo pump. How long does it take to transfer the 60 gallons?

RE: Transferring fresh water when dry camping

I did not know about the Nautilus. Does this mean you can't just stick a hose into the gravity fill port when you're at home preparing for a trip? Hi Dan. There's no gravity fill port on our trailer. profdant139. Our previous trailer had a gravity feed and I did as you do. Our current trailer only has water in via the Nautilus system which is a series of valves on a service panel and many 90 degree bends and fittings behind the panel, which I think restricts flow to some degree.

RE: Transferring fresh water when dry camping

I'm very interested in this discussion ... as I've been searching for a reliable, hand-held pump powered by a 12V cord - that I can merely plug into one of the RV's 12V outlets - so that I can transfer fresh water from a plastic 5 gallon jug on the ground up into the RV's outside fill spout. I'd buy at least two of the right kind of pump - one for fresh water and another for gasoline (i.e. to fill the portable generator's tank from a 5-gallon jug). The common cheap ones available via Amazon don't hack it - I've tried and they're junk. Does anyone have an online buying link to a decent 12V pump with a long cord that terminates in a 12V cigarette lighter male plug? Hi pnichols. I've got one of the $100 'pony pumps' that has a rubber impeller inside that can wear out and break up. It worked pretty well for a while when you're filling a gravity feed spout on the RV. I'm looking at all the RV water pumps as a better solution. If you're planning on plugging into a 12 volt outlet in the trailer, check the current draw on the pump and the fusing on the trailer outlet. You might have a wider choice of pumps if you can install the 12 volt plug on the cord yourself or have someone do it for you. Also check the fittings provided on the pump to figure out what is needed to attach hoses.

Transferring fresh water when dry camping

I’ve been transferring fresh water into our fresh tank while dry camping from 6 gallon water jugs using the onboard pump but it takes about 5 minutes for each jug. I set the Nautilus valves for filling the fresh tank with the internal pump. I’ve also tried using an external pony pump setting the Nautilus for city water. The pony pump providing the pressure. I’d like to use an external pump to speed things up and wondered what others are using. The on board pump is the SHURFLO 4008-101-A65 3.0 GPM Revolution RV Water Pump. There seems to be quite a resistance to my pony pump that I’ve tried and wondered if something like a 5.5gpm 60psi RV pump used externally would be a good way to go.
