Cleaning aid

I bought an inexpensive kitchen sink sprayer and cut in a Sharkbite Tee fitting with the adaptor for the sprayer in the water line behind the toilet. I mounted a camper showerhead holder on the wall along side the toilet to hold the sprayer.

You can buy these without the plumbing tee at Campers World for $65 for toilets with the fittings already there and mine installs on any water line and cost $25 total with the Sharkbite tee being half the cost. Installation took less than 10 minutes. (half that time carefully cutting the plastic pipe with a pipe cutter)

Additionally, with Sharkbite fittings I installed a 2 gal accumulator tank in 10 minutes which saves the pump and battery (minimizing high amp starts) and provides smooth flow.

Awesome! Great Job!

The hand held wand is a big deal when boondocking as cleanup now takes a fraction of the water it previously did and we use the wand to pre-fill the bowl when needed (instead of using the flush lever - if you press too hard the bottom valve opens and you have to start over again).

See Repairing a Thetford Aqua Magic V

For how I did it. I also used a T fitting so I did not need to flush to use the wand. I just added a valve in the wand handle in order to use shut it off when we travel. I was afraid it would fall and potentially discharge.

I like the idea of the shutoff. I never leave the pump on while moving but I do have a 2 gal accumulator tank so I could discharge close to 2 gal without the pump on.

My Sealand toilet is close enough to the tub/shower that I don't need an additional sprayer.

I learned that when I bought an Aqua-Magic 4 for my Wildwood 32'. The sprayer was redundant. Already had a shower head right next to the loo.
