We have a hose run from the dock house that is capped on both ends and submerged. We pull up both ends and fill the tanks. Many live aboards here share the hoses and tee of at their boat. With 175 gal capacity we do not fill very often.

We walk the dog every morning regardless so stopping off at the shower is easy. Our boat is 50 ft. from the dock house so using the shore toilet is not a big deal. Obviously you go right before bed and try to make it through the night. You can always pee in a bucket and empty it in the morning if needed.
