Got it figured out. I just need a longer cord to run the 12 volt air compressor. Note the truck in the pics is our farms service truck. I didnt use the air hose in there so I would have a real test of what I will have with me when I use this.

Cost me about 20 bucks in parts. Got the barrel free and I had the air compressor. I was surprised that it would push water as far as I could raise the hose. Now I have to build a cradle to set this in my truck.

Does everyone know boondocking water lasts twice as long as regular water. Think it's like two quarts equal a gallon. LOL

We run water through two filters. The first is a large filter that gets ride of silt and mud and the second is one of he small blue ones that gets rid of most of the rest. There are nano-tube filers the military is procuring that will filter bacteria and virus.

The key word is OPTIONS. Since you specifically ask about FRESH water I will list options I have used and considered

1: Drive to refill station (or tow trailer)
2: If close enough.. LOTS of hose
3: Jerry cans.. 5 or six gallons per trip
7: Water truck.. Some places have 'em
8: Several sources sell water bladders.. These are kind of like big, heavy water balloons.. They hold 40-50-~-90 gallons more or less and can sit on the roof of a car or bed of a truck. Fill them up and transfer to RV.

Some folks use a 55 gallon drum properly cleaned and sanitized.

Waste water: Barker "Blue Boy" totes
Drive: to dump to the dump, to the dump, sta-tion
