Old thread, but I have a boondocking questions I'm hoping someone may be able to answer. We can make it about 10 days but run out of water before we fill the waste tanks. I am trying to figure out a way to add fresh water without moving the beast from sweet spots in the southwest. Anyone have a setup where the can pump fresh water into the tank? What do you use?

We plan on adding solar at some point as well to keep the batteries charged. Right now we have portable panels that help keep it topped off but not enough to charge given the parasitic draw on our coach.

I've had a heck of a time finding LED bulbs for the type of lighting we have. Our 86 PT40 has swivel fixtures and each LED I've tried the base of the bulb part is too wide to fit in the receptacle?!? Not sure why they did not follow the original contour of these bulbs when they create the LED equivalent. The bulb is an automotive 1156.

If I can figure out how to add water we can go a lot longer then 9-10 days. We do not employ some of these water conservation tips because I too got the beast so we could live in a motorhome and not tent camp! I do want my cake and eat it too!!!

My setup is a 45 gal. bladder, RV 12V pump (same as coach pump "spare"), cord to reach from Jeep battery to 12V pump at rear of Jeep, hose from bladder to pump, hose from pump to coach. Works great. Has been used for refilling coach water tanks at Q for several years.

Put the JK rear seats in flat position. Spread out the bladder. Go fill the bladder.

Purchased the bladder at Camping World, the 12V water pump on-line.

Curt, Thanks for the quick reply. That was the setup I was considering, just wasn't sure it would work! Have you changed out your 1156 automotive style bulbs with LED's?

Phillips makes a direct LED replacement for the 1156 bulb. Sold at most auto parts stores.

Thanks! They do, and I've tried them but the fixtures in our 86 have a narrow opening the bulb plugs into. The philips have a collar that sticks out just after the base that will not fit into the fixture. Just wish someone made an LED bulb that has the same dimensions as the old style filament 1156.
