    Obviously I can not say for sure, but can just say this...

    Its one of two scenarios, On that model and at that age, it must be a casette toilet. Presumably you have a bathroom and shower room? on the outside of the van there must be an access hatchto the casette. a small door about 10-12 inchs square.

    If not,

    Is it a casette that can be accessed from the front of the toilet?

    What you describe is what is found on RVs (normally) where by you hook up a pipe and empty in to a elsan point. Highly unlikely that your van has this but nevertheless anything is possible in the world of motorhomes.

    Are you sure you are not looking at the grey water dump when you refer to the tank? some pics would be really simple to clear up the problem and like many, im intrigued by your system now.

    Firstly though, just go and look in the side of the van, level with the loo and have a look for that access hatch, :thumb:

    Hi and welcome to the fun, pics will help but until then
    how to fill it.
    1) drop trousers
    2) sit or stand in front of it
    3) gottit, hee hee

    now if you mean the water to flush then I suspect it is an electric flush and takes water from the main tank. I expect someone with the same model will drop by any min.
