That seems ironic, since SMB makes a city water connection do double-duty as the gravity fill (so in other words it ONLY has a city water connection fitting).
(It took me a while to get my head around why that little grey valve under the couch until I realized that was so the one connection could serve both purposes.)
Anyway, whether or not it was justified, I hate that sort of petty little rule!
I one time went to register for a campsite in a city campground, only to be told I couldn't have one because I was going to sleep in my vehicle (shiny/nice station wagon in the back of which I had a sleeping pad set up). I asked why and they said I had to pitch a tent because it was "safer." Oh really? Because nylon and a zipper is safer than my locked car?!
Then they said, well no sleeping in vehicles. I pointed out the camper van already in a site.
Then they said well, you might be homeless. To which I replied, well if that were true I can't imagine I'd be paying $45 per night for this campsite! (Not to mention my vehicle was licensed in a state about 1,000 miles away.)
By this point I threw in the towel and said okay, I have a tent. They rented me a site and I went to Wal-Mart and bought an $18 tent that was about 4' long (kids tent). Set it up in the site and then slept on my 30" x 78" thick, comfortable sleeping pad in my locked car, with nary a whimper from the powers that be
(For a week - I was there taking a class. Otherwise I would have left in a huff after the first silly rule!)
Anyway, I hope you get fixed up and running ASAP.
