    Hi, is what you mean

    If so you have a number of options if you want to keep the trolley in tacked which I would do myself.

    The options are as follows:

    option 1 Keep the trolley in the van - Strap the trolley upright in the van and fill the van tank directly. Then can also be used as an on demand ro/di system when need be. Either static in the van or outside like you have been doing.

    option 2 Keep the trolley at home - Use it as a static ro/di system to fill 1000 ltr ibc's tanks. Then transfer the water into the van tank.

    If you want to keep it in the van then you just need to look at the best way to connect it up to the van tank and if whilst filling if you want a door left open or not.

    Fitting outside van ports for security whilst filling and adding an auto cut out solenoid switch so it don't flood the van would be the best option.

    If the ro/di has a 240 volt booster pump then look at also fitting an outside plug fitting too so is just a case of running the power to the outside van socket.

    As for as hose connections are concerned you will need to look making new hoses for it the right length with quick connects so is connected up to the van ports. Likewise the 240 cable from the booster pump to the van outside power socket.

    If you do it in such a way that all connections can be quickly removed then can also be used as a trolley if need be and brought indoors for frosty nights/hard winter months too.

    There are two types of van ports you can get.

    Ones that fit on the side of the van that are quite expensive or ones that fit under the van

    Both option you can see on this site http://www.cleaningspot.co.uk/acatalog/Van_accessories.html
    Whichever ones you go for means cutting holes in the van.
