Where to fill fresh water ?

My motorhome is stored and I don't have room for it at my house, even for prep, so my question is where can I fill up the fresh water on the road?

Just fill it at the first campground you stop at for the night!

Your first RV Park stop.

Some rest stops have availability.

Failing that get some 1 gal jugs and a funnel.

Campgrounds
Some Rest stops
Some Fair grounds
Some fuel stations
Some city parks
Almost anywhere that offers RV dumping

I know there are more but that is just off the top of my head.

I bring one of these jugs full of water to the storage lot when I go to work on the trailer or load up for a trip. After a couple of visits, I have enough water to travel. Then we fill up upon arrival at the campground.
It also works well in dry campgrounds to transport water from the spigot to our site (carried in a folding wagon). The collapsible bladders work too, but can get messy.

I run a hose from the jug to the winterization inlet, set the valves to direct the water to the tank, and turn on the pump.

Water

In addition to the ones mentioned, I have also had luck filling up at local water utilities for not much dinero. Some I've been to are even coin operated

I have a 5 gallon version of this. If I have to lug it too far, I have an old golf bag hand cart that I picked up for $10 at a garage sale. I like it because it folds up for storage.
