How can I fill my tank?

I have a 2017 Montana HC 353RL. How do I fill my potable water tank if there is no water spigot near by? My old 2004 Cougar had a fill connection that I could pour a 6 gallon jug into. This unit only has a garden hose connection to fill from

That's true. Some folks have rigged a water pump to pump from a water bladder.

A frequent question here. Do a Search on "water fill" or such and there will be lots of discussion, Here are a few samples.

Thanks for the info

Many thanks to Carl n Susan. Using the shower connection was ultimately my solution...I had tried previously using a 6 gallon water jug through the winterizing connection, but couldn't figure out why I couldn't get from that to the water tank. I didn't know the winterizing connection only fed the faucets and not the whole system. For anyone else, here are some pics of what worked best for me.

And I already have the hoses that I use for winterizing. Plus quick connects to make it fast and easy. I do plan to make a pvc stinger for bucket though so hose won’t coil up and not reach bottom. Store it all in bucket with lid and I’m set for refills and winterizing!!
