RV Free Refills of Fresh Water Boondocking
Places where you dump your tanks often have potable water available. If necessary, you can go to a campground or state/local park to dump and/or fill the fresh tank. There will be a fee, of course.

Cabella's stores, Canadian Tire, Fred Meyer's stores, FLying J's and such are RV friendly and have fresh water and dump stations. In some states the Rest Areas will have them too.

And small businesses are often amenable to a simple request to use an outside water tap
. Especially if you just bought something there.

Hotshot Trucking Sleepers

I am seeing quite a few hotshot setups pulling campers and classic cars this summer out on the highway. I think this niche market is an interesting sector of the transportation industry.  Here are some pictures of hotshot trucking sleepers:
