Hello Mike, welcome.
I'll copy my answer to your question from another thread:
You can travel with as much, or as little water as you like--provided you don't otherwise have the camper loaded up such that its weight is over the gross vehicle weight rating. (Take it to a scale so you know.)
Most people travel with just a little water--enough to flush the toilets and wash your hands--and then fill up at the destination. In general this is how we travel: about 1/3 of a tank to ensure we have some for use at rest stops and the like.
We do have one annual trip where there is no water hookups and the campground is relatively nearby (about 90 miles). In that case I fill it to the top at home and drive there with a completely full water tank (and completely empty waste tanks). We've been going to this campground for quite some time and I've always done this regardless of the camper (two TTs, one 5er, and now our Axis).
