Have you seen nipple waterers?
You may want to add one in their "moving cage"

How long is the road trip?

Thanks for the advice about nipple waterer!!!! Do you just plug into a tank!?!??
You can "screw" a nipple into just about any plastic container/soda bottle/milk jug/water bottle.
You just gotta make sure you poke a tiny hle in the top of the container so the water will flow.
If you like I will find a link of a "how to" and post it for you??

I just got a 4 pack from tractor supply company for 5 bucks. The first pack I tried leaked a little so I swapped for a different pack. No leaks what so ever and super easy to do. I drilled 3/8 holes put some thread tape on the nipples and screwed them into a five gallon bucket. No leaks! You can do it with a coke bottle lid as well and zip tie them to whatever you are carrying them in.
