    I am just cleaning the motorhome after returning, I am in the toilet now and was wondering of it would be a good idea to steralise the toilet tank box thing you take out, would it do it any harm to fill it with something, I don't want to damage any seals, any help would be useful :thumb:

    We used to use "Milton" or one of the cheaper ones from the 99p shop..

    If it`s ok for the teats on baby`s bottles and the like shouldn`t hurt the seals.. :thumb:

    She may get her hands in but how does she get her fist out when it is clenching things? :RollEyes:

    She is at work so will ask her to help when she gets home tonight :thumb:

    Hi Mo, Milton etc, are just mild bleach so if left on rubber seals it will harden and rot rubber:Wink: By all means was around them but give a good rinse afterwards :thumb:
    After emptying ours if leaving it stood I usually stick some bio liquid wash stuff and leave it

    How do you know if it's gone hard, do you put your hand down inside or can you it feel from the outside? I will get my wife to have a feel later.

    Mine is second hand, I don't know if anyone else has been messing around with it, it could be soft and OK or it could be hard, I just wanted to know how anyone else checked theirs without sticking a camera in it :Doh: Can you service them if it is hard?

    Seals can become hard with age but are pretty easy to replace (see Thetford Europe web site). Sometimes you can rejuvenate the seal by cleaning it with olive oil and leaving it somewhere warm where it can soften again.

    I have an Endiscope the connects to a PC if you want to buy it so you can check inside your box (or anything else for that matter) :Rofl1: I used it to find my leaking pipe!

    Have you ever though of employing a man who does? he could look after your toilet and keep a keen eye on your stock of rolls.

    Just a thought?
