Unthreaded water faucets

Bring a "water thief" the rubber gadget that permits connecting a hose to a water outlet lacking hose threads.
I think the reason the faucets are not threaded at federal campgrounds is to prevent RV's from taking many, many gallons of water and depleting the water table. After all, many of these campgrounds are located in the desert or have to rely on small springs in other places.
