anyone use a transfer tank in the bed for resh water?
i have a 2006 33' Forrest River travel trailer that sleeps 8 but the fresh water tank capacity is only like 35 gallons, way too small! I was toying with the idea of hauling a plastic 55 gallon drum of water in the bed of the truck, (approx 400 lbs,) and using it as a transfer tank.
I jsut wondered if anyone else does this and what kinda designs they have come up with for a rack, ( to keep the drum steady and secure,) and also a pump to get the water from teh bed of the truck into the camper. I was kinda thinking of using some 4x4's and amking a simple rack for the drum with a little in line filter and maybe a check valve along wiht a small 12v transfer pump and a garden hose. Maybe plug the 12V transfer pump into the cigarette lighter for power? Let me know what you guys have done that works. Thanks in advance.
