    from the water storage tanks, and from a recycling unit. and maybe a very long water hose

    Yes, fuel cells produce water as a waste product of electricity production.

    Water can also be reclaimed from lithium hydroxide scrubbers.

    The common hydrogen fuel cell oxidizes hydrogen to produce electricity and water. 2H2 + O2 --> 2H2O. The lithium hydroxide scrubber (removes carbon dioxide from the air) also produces water in a hydride form: 2LiOH + CO2 --> Li2CO3.H2O The hydrate water can be boiled off and then condensed back to liquid.
