Water supply

How do you guys keep the water? Do you guys have a water tank or do you regularly refill small gallon tanks? If you do have large water tanks, do you attach it to the top or bottom of the bus, and how do you keep the water from freezing in the winter? And how do you get the water? Like; where do you get it from?
Just describe your water scenario please
-Thanks,
Paul

I bought two poly water tanks online (40 gallon each) and will mount them side by side under the bus. One is for fresh and one for grey. I'll have a fill connection on the side like an rv for fresh and a drain connection low for the side. In FL so far, so no worries of freezing. I may think more about it if I plan to be north when cold hits but I really plan to be a snow bird.

We have two 45 gal plastic fresh water tanks in the basement.
You can get water most anywhere, campground, city park, truckstop, etc.
We don't camp in cold weather so freezing isn't a problem.
We have a normal Rv water pump and an on demand propane water heater.
Very basic. Very simple.
You can do it.
Have fun.

I get my water by pail. It comes in form of rain, snow, the nabor's out side tap, town in 18L jugs, ect.

One day I will have a 400 gallon tank, pump, pressure system, and all the comforts of a regular house.
