Very NICE idea - thank you.

I wonder if they have a U.S. importer.

I stole the idea from rseagle (see post #11). Works like a charm, and no moving parts to break. This is similar to the idea in post #10. In fact, I also use a blue 7 gallon container which I bought at Walmart.

But how do you start the siphon from the top of the jug? I like that Aquaroll thing... I can't seem to find a US distributer though...

Don't know. Would it be worth asking one of your camping accessory stores to import them?

We import US accessories via a UK dealer purchasing from the Stag Parkway catalogue. With duties & taxes goods usually work out at £'s for dollar price shown in catalogue.

As senior citizens and fulltimers we've found no easier way of hauling water.

3Ms... as you can see in rseagle's picture, the water container is higher than the water fill opeining on the side of the AS. The tubing goes into the water container, then hold the open end lower than the bottom of the container and suck on the tubing until a siphon suction is created (water will flow freely and you might get a mouthful of water). Then the only tricky part is to quickly insert the tube into the water fill opening without losing the suction. Make sense? Actually, it's much easier to do than to explain!

Not sure it's really necessary, if you want to buy one. Looks like they will ship direct to you.

It's curious, on Aquaroll's shipping page, the pull down menu has just about any country in the world, EXCEPT the USA?

Their product looks like a good idea, and should sell well over her on this side of the pond...

We use a 45 gallon collapsable water bladder purchased at Camping World and a 12vdc pump (purchased at Harbor Frieght) that plugs into the rear outlet on our Expedition We pump the water from the back of the truck into the trailer with our freshwater hoses and the pump. Works very well. No lifting, pouring, spilling etc.

Both the bladder and the pump stow away in a very small space.

Here's a water purification tip:

PUROGENE is an excellent water tank treatment, and can be used in drinking water. I would argue that it actually improves taste a bit, and we use it every time we fill our tank. It is available from Bay-Tec Containers.

PUROGENE Long Term Water Storage Treatment - AquaTank Water Bag

I buy the 16 oz. container for $30, and it only requires one ounce per 30 gallons of water. That conversion also works out to one milliliter per gallon. I use a medicine measuring syringe (plastic plunger type, but it at Walgreen's for less than $1).

I have found that the 7-gallon aquatainers work well for having extra water available and refilling our tank. Our Sport 22 has a 20 gallon tank, and with six aquatainers in the back of our truck, we travel with over 60 gallons of water.

Yes, you are correct USA not mentioned. Yet if you click on "Buy on Line", then "Info", shopping from North America is mentioned under the heading "Making a Purchase". Cannot understand this.

Will phone the company on Monday and ask why no USA on their pull down menu.

Hope this helps.

My setup is even easier than wbrownrr states. Get yourself a Super Siphon.

Amazon.com: Super Siphon w/ 6' Siphon Hose - TWO for 16.95: Sports & Outdoors

It has a glass ball in the copper fitting at one end. Place this in the water container and the open end into the trailer fill point. Make sure the container is sitting on a carpenter's helper above the fill point. Plunge the copper fitting repeatedly until the water column passes over the high point of the hose and it's down hill all the way! No sucking required.

If we are staying in a location long enough to know we will have a need to haul water then we move into "water conservation" mode - which pretty much means using onboard water only when there is not another alternative - food preparation and clean-up is done outdoors, showers and daytime toilet use is a visit to the campground facilities (or lake and privy if not at a campground).

Phoned Aquaroll this morning and they have insurance/compensation issues with shipping to the USA. However, www.campingworld.co.uk will ship a similar product to North America. The product is manufactured by Pyramid and called "Water Hog", below is a pic :
