Our new Grandby.  Picked up Monday in Woodland Ca..   It is a shell model and we added the following:  Dual Batteries, MPPT Controller, Furnace, Stove, Rack and Roll Over couch.   I will be building a kitchen counter with a sink and 12V pump and later adding two Renogy 100watt solar panels.

Started this weekend on adding a small countertop with a sink.  The sink is a "Hotel Pan" that I purchased new for 16.00.  I am adding a Surflo electric faucet, small water pump and will use two 7 gallon water jugs for fresh water.  The gray water will drain out the bottom of the truck into a 3rd water jug for disposal.  

 

I will be the first to mention that I am a very marginal woodworker.  Be kind on my woodworking skills.   :)

Here is adding the countertop and measuring:

Here is cutting in the hotel pan for the sink.

Getting closer.  Will be adding a door to the opening.  Also will secure the water jugs.

Ouray, Here's my Rube Goldberg set up for drawing water from the 7 gal jugs. I also chose the portable jugs as it's much easier to swap them out rather than trying to fill a built in tank. I used the same faucet  the  OP did. Here's my sink top also. Forget to mention, All the fitting were found at Home Depot. A plastic barbed fitting that screwed into the Reliance cap, then a piece of 1/2 copper that slid down through it. Then brass fittings to the quick coupler. I need to find some "food grade" fittings for the quick coupling though.

FYI - here is the Reliance Anti-Gravity Pump for the Reliance water jugs.  I saw it used in a teardrop camper bit I can't tell you how well it works.

I am not aware of any direct connect fittings. I just place a reinforced water hose from the little 12v pump and into the opening of the aquatainer. I don't fill it quite all the way to the top and after a half dozen trips I haven't had any water splash out.

I've got one, it gives about 8 oz per stroke. it isnt the sturdiest thing but works well.

I like the simplicity of it.

 

it really beats laying the jug down to use the spigot, they always seem to drip on me.
