Source of water? Solar powered dehumidifier

Just had a thought for boondocking.... buy a home dehumidifier, putting it outside, plug it into your bus's 120 volt outlet, and having the water go into bottle or the fresh water tank.

I read that a 4500 sq. ft. unit would remove 50 pints (>6 gallons) per day from indoors.

Not sure how much difference interior humidity in house would be from in a bus or from outside but a ~$210 4500 sq. ft dehumidifier feeding into a Royal Berkey water filter..... Uses 4.7 amps, 120 volts

Would this be a good addition to making your water last longer between fill ups at a campground?

Anyone done this?

I think your idea will work just fine, but whether or not it's economically viable is a totally different question.
