Talking I'm ready for Boondocking!

Inspired by Jimmini's setup of two 100 gallon PCO tanks (one for fresh water and one for black), I bought a 50 gallon PCO water tank and 12v pump to refill my Sovereign's 50 gallon water tank while Boondocking or Dry Camping. As you can see it fits perfectly in the back of my Excursion.

I bought the tank at FIMCO in Tempe. The tank was reasonably priced at 100 bucks. They have a huge selection of plastic water tanks from small 20 gallon tanks to 2500 gallon models. I also bought a 12v pump with wiring to plug directly in the 12v power point which you can see on the right side near the door.

The last modification I'll be making to my Sovereign for Boondocking will be a solar system. I'll probably start off with a 125 watt panel and go from there. I'll be waiting until the Fall before I do that final mod.

I thought I was a serious boondocker, but you've got me beat by a longshot!

Nice setup!
