I ran off a generator for about 6 years until they pulled electric down our two track road. What I did for water was buy a 60 gallon container from Tractor Supply. I purchased an electric pump which is some what like the one in our RV from Home Depot. I put a hose in the water container and the output hose to the RV water inlet. Fired up the generator and the RV water tank filled in about 10 minutes. If your out in the boonies like I am don't forget to mouse proof your unit. Those little suckers can get in a space the width of a pencil. I use steel wool and foam to seal up anything you can find. Good Luck

Yes, that 60 gallon + pump may work great for us, versus hauling 5 gal jugs...
Thanks for the mouse advice too Dennis!

LED bulbs are what you are looking for. There are many different kinds and styles. It partly depends on what type of bulbs your TT has now. Do a search on this site or ask a new question in the general discussion part of this site and you will get some answers about LED bulbs.

One option for LED (what I did)

Go here M4 Products and look at the first three bulbs. My trailer is new so I used the wedge base bulbs. You may use one of the others. They have Soft white (yellowish) and cool white (white light). We chose the white ones and are very pleased with the increase in light over the originals. You may want the white ones in the range hood and over the dinner table but some soft whites else where. I'm using these Economy Wedge Based RV Retrofit LED Light everywhere including the porch.
