I also have one and have used it a bunch this summer! Basically, you pull the cassette out and open the screw cap. The cap should double as a measuring cup. I then pour some of the blue sanitizer liquid in the cup and dump it into the cassette holding tank. Then place a little water in the tank...enough to cover the bottom. Screw the cap back on and then place the cassette back into it's holding area.

Next you will need to fill the flush tank. There should be a little pipe that pulls out which also has a green cap on it. Pull it out and start filling it up...this is the water that will be used to flush the toilet. There should be a little clear tube which will show you how much water is in the tank...mine starts to fill really fast when it is empty, but when you get towards the top, the tank gets bigger and it takes a while to fill. I fill mine until the water in the tube is at the very top. When full, put the cap on that pipe and and fold it back into the cassette area.

You should be now ready to do you business! We only use our for going #1...mainly middle of the night type stuff, but one of my daughters did have an upset stomach one time and had to do a #2 emergency once and it was fine for that.

To use the toilet, there should be a little lever that opens up the hole in the bowl...you can either go and then open the lever or open it up and go...either way, you open the lever and then push the flush button. Ours usually lasts about 2 days for my family of 4 before I have to empty and refill it....when the flush tank gets empty, you will have an indicator light come on and it will run dry. One time, we did fill up the waste holding tank before the flush was empty and I had a little bit of a mess inside the cassette area to clean up, but you will see if it is getting too full.

Once it is full, just make sure the lever is closed for the bowl flush hole and then go outside and pull the cassette out. You can then take it to the dump station or a bathroom...I actually prefer to take it to the bathroom and it is easier to dump without making a mess. To dump, you fold out the pipe with the measuring cap and then open the cap...then just hold onto the handles and tip it up to dump and push the little green button to release the air and it will dump out. I usually put a little water in and rinse it out a couple of times to get all the TP out... It is then ready to go again! Good luck with it!

I skip the first paragraph above. I only open that cap (measuring cup size) to dump as that is a direct opening to the business end. lol.

I carry a gallon milk/OJ jug and premix the blue stuff prior to the second paragraph above. This fills the holding tank with blue stuff. Every time you flush, you rinse the bowl with blue and follows it down.

Both methods work and accomplish the same end game.

Thanks mcavve & vinmaker. This is better than an instruction manual. We are a couple of old farts and have to get it in the middle of the night. Our maiden voyage is in a couple of weeks.

Thank you. We purchased our pop up and have not used it or filled it. this will be a treat to get this without any problems. Back in the early 70's we had a porta toilet this was not easy to empty or clean.

The flush did not work on the toilet. I rinsed the toilet using the shower head. Oh well!!

So the pump did not work? You may have blown a fuse. That can happen when the pump impella gets stuck. It will then blow a fuse.

That happened to me. I needed to stretch into an access panel to change the fuse. It was in a weird place. You sound like you have a different unit than I had. You may need to search online for some schematics of your unit to see where the fuse is. You should be able to easily access the pump by pulling out the toilet paper holder. The pump is simply held in with one Phillips head screw. Unscrew it and see if you can spin the impellers with a small flat head screw driver. Mine was junked up and would not turn freely. Had to manually spin it a few times with the screwdriver to get it going.

Good luck.

Vin.

There is a fuse under there. Pull out the cassette and look on the top, like looking inside the camper through the hole in the toilet, about half way back. I think it's a 5 amp fuse.

You guys said you could dump the cassette in the toilet and run some water in the cassette to get the rest of the toilet paper out. Are you dumping it in the camp ground bathroom? And are you bringing jugs of water to rinse it out as there's not a hose in the bathroom. And I guess the blue solution is ok on the plumbing? And the camp ground is ok with using the bathroom for the cassette? I'm new to all this and it sounds helpful.

We used the dump station just like the big guys if at a campground. Otherwise, we carried it home and used a house toilet, but that's not preferred. Can be done tho.
