Pump can stay on continuous. Pump will not burn out for being left on. Actually the motor does not run or draw power until water is needed.

Any chance your house electrical panel is right there at the side yard? Adding a 20a or 30a circuit for the trailer could help reduce headaches. Dont want them popping breakers at 2am cooking popcorn in the microwave.

First, Unless you have water in your water heater. Don't turn that on.
Second, Like others have said, you can hook up a hose and not need the pump. Personally I wouldn't do that. Why? Black and grey tank size. Limit the amount of water your guests have to use by only putting in the fresh tank whatever the amount the grey can hold.
That way they call you when they run out of water. Not when the shower is overflowing onto the floor of the trailer. When they call you to tell you they need water, you empty the tanks and add water.

Actually, I don't pity the "owner", as they will be making their "millions" off renting it [image]

The "owner" will have no issue paying a cleaning crew to clean up the messes and still earn a profit.

Thought this through a little more.

Plumb the drainage directly into your sewage system. Remove the tanks and run lines direct. Now worry of overflowing or clogged tanks. Hook up a hose to provide water, no pump to worry about.
