At the Quartzsite LTVA blue boy dump site, down the road and is separate from where the trailer dump is, there is hardly any one in line at all, it is easy to make several trips to it in a day. I dump my blue boy and then fill the water containers at the water fill area.

We were just in Quartzsite last week on blm land east of town, first time ever stopping there on our way home from NASCAR race in Phoenix. We used RV PIT STOP on Central ave north of I-10, $15 to dump, $5.00 to fill water. We want to go back when all the people are there just to say we did!! Any help or thoughts would be great. Don't know or didn't see any delivery systems but like I said, first time and only three days.

Thank you all.
The raven will hold 100 gals so I plan on strapping a couple of clean barrels to my cat dolly. I am going to have to rig up a pump of some kind as well as I can only pressure fill my tank.

Last time I was there (2012?) there was water truck driving around the BLM land. I believe he was charging a flat rate of $60, 1 gallon or 100. He probably didn't sell much when people found they could fill up in town for $3 at that time.

I can only pressure fill my tank also, so I use a extra RV water pump with a hose up to my water connection at the trailer, I get the 12 volt power from my trailer light connector on the back of my truck.

Good Idea.
I was also thinking of a 120 volt utility pump, but I like the 12 volt idea better.

I also use bottled water for cooking and drinking. For shower and toilet it carry a 7 gal and 2 5 gal buckets for refill water. To pump it in I use one of these from Harbor Freight. Got it with a 20% off coupon so it cost $32. Works great!

I've been pondering if the cost of water was going to increase out in the desert due to the water shortage in California, and that whole region.

I have a bladder and 12 volt pump, but don't use the bladder. I use a 7 gallon and 4 gallon Reliance water container. To use the bladder, I must remove every thing from my Jeep Cherokee and fold the seat down. It is a lot easier to just bring 11 gallons every once in awhile. I can also use the containers to gravity fill if I have a pump emergency. I bought the 4 gallon specifically for emergency gravity fill. We go 7 to 10 days on the gray and black water tanks and I bring 11 gallons of water back a couple of times in that period.

My thoughts are what you have , may I ask where do you carry the bladder (in the toad)? And what is your black and grey water capacity?
