river water

I would like to supply river water to my trailer for non-drinking water. The river is 100 ft. from the trailer, approx. 8 ft. below the trailer's water entry. I would like to run a 50 ft. hose to a 12v pump and connect another 50 ft. hose from the pump to the trailer's water entry. Can someone provide me with some advice ?

river water

Google "Ram Pump". These are easily made with PVC fittings, and can pump water uphill for some distance without any external power source. Might be just what you need!
