Some of the rest stops along I70 in Kansas have a hose bib on the outside. if you have a long enough hose you could fill from that. FlyingJ in Salina as well - at the RV islands. Just make sure to fill from the fresh bib not the dump rinse out bib. You can dump too for $10 ($5 with a FlyJ card).

Not sure what you are driving but when I ran my Class C I used to fill at convenience type stores, they always have a bib on the side. Just ask and go to town.

I always run a full tank, all 105 gallons - never know when you'll need it - and in 5 yrs of full time and 85,000 earthquaking miles never a tank fail and never a reason to believe there would be one. The opinions some folks have who are "supposed" to be "professionals" is simply, stunning.

Hopefully the OP has found water; that was 5 days ago.

We did find water! And thanks to all the comments here we knew to avoid the well water at remote campgrounds. We asked at a travel center and they let us fill from a spigot on the side of their building. We asked at the next campground to be sure the had treated water before filling there. We haven't found a little filter to attach to our hose yet, but we have it on our list of supplies to locate. I LOVE being able to ask questions of everyone here! Thanks for all of your help and discussion!!

Wal-mart sells filters and pressure regulators. Some places have high pressure that will damage your plumbing.

I didn't get my fresh water tank rinsed well enough when we went over Easter weekend, was really glad I had a Britta pitcher to filter the drinking and coffee making water! No on board filter. They are lightweight and work in a pinch if you come up to some stinky water... more likely to be found in South east/central Kansas. It's not bad for you, just smells a little sulfery.

Every small town in Kansas along old 40 ( parrellel I-70) used to have nice campgrounds and really friendly folks. As for traveling full, my Alpenlite has 88,000 miles towing at least half full. 50 gallons. No failure yet.
