OMG! I'm not in charge. But we flushed with water, pine-sol, more water, more water, more water till it was clean and not a speck of anything came out. Used a whole big bottle of pine-sol. Flushed till even the bubbles were gone.

You may even get a plugged toilet.

I guess I have been lucky over the years and just use alot of water and the normal tank treatments and have never had an issue or a smell.

I always wonder the reasoning behind not using the shower, stool, sinks etc in the units. It may be me but I truly enjoy my clean toilet and my shower when I awake each morning. It brings back memories of a gentleman we met in a campground that we were seasonal in a few years ago. I would notice after each meal he carried his dishes to the shower house and washed them in the sink. I had a few days off and wanting to be help out I inquired if I could get his water working for him,,,,he looks at me like I am crazy,,,and said I will have you know my sinks, shower and toilet has never been used and never will be so that when I go to sell this unit I am going to get top dollar for it. Long story short about 3 weeks later a tree fell totally crushing his trailer, thank the lord he was ok. It was totalled and he had no insurance, I felt bad but I had to ask him how much those new fixtures were worth lol. We all rallied around him and helped him with a park fund raiser to get another unit. He thanked me for opening his eyes to as he put it "a crazy way of thinking" and I never saw him carrying dirty dishes or going to the shower room again.

I hope Turbs reads this about not using the toilet.

Amen to that! Hate having to use campground facilities. That's why we bought our first camping trailer 38 yrs ago.

I could never figure out why somebody wouldn't use a perfectly good bathroom in their trailer. You can sing in the shower and it's all private.

I've always used mine to 2, or what my son used to call 2 2, two two.

Laughing.
