    portable 12V water pump

    it's a submersible pump with about 2 metres of hose and a 12v cigarette socvet type lead

    i fill using a submersible pump and container if no tap close by but....

    stratford a couple of years ago....sub pump stopped working and in desperation i removed the 6" screw cap on top of the tank, mine was under the dinette seat, and filled direct from the container into it.

    Our Autoquest 100 came with a submersible pump as Johnson mentions and has a socket on the side next to the water filler. I'm surprised your van doesn't have the same as the Avantgarde 200 models used to have a similar arrangement. The socket is the Euro version rather than the usual cigarette lighter one.

    Appears nobody has mentioned the watering can yet. I have a submersible pump and an aquaroll but still carry the watering can, fuss free and the multiple trips to the tap must be good exercise. :Smile:
