Cassette toilet

For those that have a cassette toilet, I have a question. Can I fill the reservoir tank before I leave for the trip or should I wait till I get to the destination?

Is there anyway that bumping around on the Road or going uphill might cause it to spill. I am not talking about filling up the toilet but rather the cassette toilets reservoir.

Trout, The book says to fill it either half or 3/4 full, can't remember which, for just that reason. That said, I've traveled with it full, and I've traveled with it half full, over some fairly tough terrain, and I've never spilled a drop from the reservoir tank.

toilet pump

I have a thetford C403L toilet with electric flush. problem is the impeller in the pump sticks after a few days of none use and blows the fuse. is there a fix for this? So far I have had to take the pump out and use a pick to rotate the impeller a little to free it up and then replace the 3 amp. fuse.

We have just bought a rockwood with cassette toilet. Question to Troutstalker - How does one get the chemical to release inside? we've pressed the lever inside and chemical is not coming thru. What are we doing wrong? Hope you can help us..

Hi,

I don't know wich model you have, but on mine, I have to push the blue spot near the inside lever to get the liquid. Unlike other toilets connected to the water, it's not the flush lever that activate the liquid.
Does-it answer your question?

Cassette Toilet

Thanks for the replies received on operation of cassette toilet. Jiheme yes we know the blue button is supposed to release chemical/water but ours is not doing so. Now upon reading various articles maybe we did not fill with enough water. As it was working well the previous time. In the manual it only states to fill to reservoir line but on forum others state that you keep pouring (which we did not do). Also how did you winterize the cassette toilet to make sure no water is in reservoir?
