    well this is embarrassing so please don't laugh!! Because of all the bad weather we never got to get away for a trial weekend prior to our trip to the tour of Flanders this Thursday so we did a test run on the drive a couple of weeks ago. It went well and we had a great time but I was a little perplexed by the the fact there was no room to sit on the toilet without leaving the door open. I know I have been married for 10 years but even so there are some things that require privacy!! Imagine my embarrassment tonight when I discovered that the toilet seat turns easily to allow for leg room. Well how was I supposed to know, I am a newbie. Please tell me this was a common mistake and I won't feel such a numptie!!:Blush::Blush::Blush:

    Probably no sillier than my missus going to the loo while I was on the other side of the Aire emptying the cartridge. Imagine my surprise when I returned and opened the compartment door..

    You will not be the first nor the last not to realise the toilet 'swivels' in most newer motorhomes

    Hence the expression 'Sit on that and swivel'?

    That's better than somebody on site that didn't know cassettes needed to be emptied and just kept using it doing both types in it, I got called to see why his toilet wouldn't flush, I told him the only way to do rather than do it myself.

    All this talk of Numpties reminds me of when our new neighbours, then 9 yr old, daughter picked up the post and asked her mum who Mr Marks was. Her mum replied oh that's a letter for the previous owner. To which her daughter promptly replied, "oh no it's not, his name was Numptie". :Eek!:

    Well her mum fell about laughing as she knew exactly where that name had come from......my husband's name for our previous neighbour! :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:
