Portable water tank

We will be heading out the first of April for 7 months of camping and we are looking for a way to refill the fresh water tank in the MH while parked without hookups. Some where I saw a post where a small bilge pump was added to one of the 5 gallon water tanks like the ones sold at Walmart but do not remember the name of the pump or how it worked. If anyone has any ideal I would love to hear them. Having a bad back I can not lift the tanks up to the water fill.

I got a battery operated pump for the big jugs of water, I also have a hand pump (7 - 10 $) but I like the battery one better, here is the link and it works great!

Amazon.com: Innovative Electric Battery-Operated Home 5 Gallon Jug Drinking Bottled Water Pump with Switch: Sports & Outdoors

I got mine at Home Hardware, I bet H Depot also has them, mine was $30.00 and worth every penny ...!

Attwood on Amazon makes a transfer pump...

Also, I saw some xfer pumps at Home Depot and Lowes. Most of the ones I saw were 115V but a few were battery operated.

My friend uses a Shurflow RV water pump with a collapsible water tank - about ten gallons I think. I think he got the tank at Camping World but I am not sure about that
