I use a manual pump to winterize my class c, works ok, but thought I would see if a battery powered transfer pump that would connect my RV was available.
So far I haven't found one - anyone tried such?

Get a little drill pump for $5.19 from Amazon or your local haardware store. Buy a couple of fittings to put 3/8" or 1/2" plastic tubing on both sides and you're all set to go.

Try Harbor Freight if you have one available. I have one of theirs, two D cell batteries, to pump diesel from a five gallon container into my tractor.

All you need is a $15.00 RV bypass kit. It's a ball valve and a 2' hose installed in the suction side of your RV pump. Google is your friend.

Have one as well. Cannot beat the 10 buck price though I'd like to see them make it in a Li-Ion battery pack version.

Just use your own water pump. Remove the suction from the storage tank to the pump and then connect a plastic tube to the suction side of the pump. That's all you need. Simple, quick and easy. Your only expense is for a short length of plastic tubing and a barbed fitting to match your pumps suction side. When finished, put the line from the storage tank back on the pump and store the adapter you made for next winter.

Get an RV water pump same as in your RV. Then you will have a spare if needed.
