I guess we've just gotten soft in our old age.
I'm with you as always reserve/stay in campgrounds with full hookups.

However, I wouldn't remove the fresh water tank as always travel with about 1/2 tank of fresh water for those 'bathroom breaks' while on the road, occasional hand washing plus option to clean up if ever have a flat tire or other such situation. In the mid-west, it's not unusual for there to be 100 miles between 'facilities.'

Since 2012, twice unplanned delays caused us to stay in a WalMart parking lot overnight and nine times, elected to stay in a campground w/o hookups due to financial/site availability issues. Therefore, having fresh water available provides a much more pleasant outcome.

We definitely prefer campgrounds with water & electric hookups but feel the need to be prepared for the times when they’re not available. Few (maybe none of the Wisconsin State Parks have onsite water but most have electrical hookups on many sites. Not sure we’d enjoy not having electric hookups.
