Good work! I like the transfer pump you put together. Can you do a video on how you made that? I'm looking at getting a collapsible rain barrel, using RainSaucers on top for collection, and was trying to find a manual pump to get the water transferred to the onboard tank.

What did you use to edit the video?

Nice video. Harbor Freight has a 12 volt DC Marine Utility Pump already set up with the right hose fittings and battery clamps.

I have set up our trailer for boodocking and that includes one of those HF pumps and can pump water out of streams or lakes. But I also have three filters, particulate, pre-filter and final NBC nuclear biological chemical. I do not trust campground water supplies. I would assume they are tested but how often and any adjustment in a water treatment plant comes after there is a deviation from what should be.

I take empty gallon milk jugs and fill them with water at home for drinking and coffee. I have 15 gallons I keep under the sink and seats at the table. The water I use for other things can be pumped from a spring or stream into my holding tank when I get to where I'm camping. That way I'm not driving with 60 gallons in my tank and messing with my gas mileage.

The pump is a Shureflo demand pump similar to what you have in your motorhome (makes a great spare). I made up some 1/2" NPT to garden hose connections for the pump, mounted the pump in a container and wired it using alligator clips.

For video editing I use iMovie that is installed on my Mac

I was dry camping last month for over a week. Ran to Tractor Supply, bought a 1/2 hp pump with garden hose fittings in and out, cost about $140.00, I had the water jugs. Worked very well.
