How to Fill Your Water Tank Without Proper Hookups
Many campgrounds without water hookups — such as U.S. Forest Service or Bureau of Land Management (BLM) campgrounds — have a water supply, but don’t have a threaded faucet to connect your water hose. To simplify filling your water tank from such a faucet, cut off an old hose about a foot or so from the end. Attach your regular hose to the “good” end of the old hose, and slip the cut end over the threadless faucet. It’s not going to fit perfectly and will probably leak (you can wrap a towel around it or use a hose clamp to reduce leakage), but it will get the job done. And it beats having to fill your water tank with a bucket!
