    Default Pump for water tank in trailer: Do you have one?

    I'm looking for input/suggestions on what kind to get and how many GPM I should be looking at.

    Did you just buy the pumps listed on RV parts sites, like this:

    My used Dream Coach already had the tank and pump in it. The place I got it from had originally sold it new, and they sell the accessories as well. Check out Blue Ridge Trailers. Somewhere on their site they offer water tanks, pumps, awnings, etc.

    For a proper answer, you must provide your water needs and the size of the supply tank. Are you wishing to wash a horse? Or just rinse bits and bridle. Hand washing or a shower in a dry camp? Drinking water in a bucket for a horse or two? or three? or four?

    My water tank you just fill in the top and take out via a hose on the bottom. The only problem is if you get the shutoff valve in the dirt at all it will leak all over the tack room floor

    But I agree that it depends what you need the water for.

    I want to be able to rinse off my horse as well as rinse out the trailer. I will take a look at the tank tomorrow and re-post.

    Thanks much for the input thus far!
