    You've been motorhoming for 3 years and haven't emptied it yet, sounds like a major job :Laughing:

    I would have thought the Kon-Tiki had a cassette, so no drain.

    If there is no drain off you'll have to siphon it with a tube, but make it a clear tube so you can see it coming!

    Get a good suck going then release as it rises.

    as far as i know all swift motorhomes have a cassette toilet.

    next to the toilet, but outside, will be a locker door.....behind that is the cassette.....simply press down the yellow locking plate and pull it out then take to the elsan point.


    if you mean the grey (sink/shower) tank you will maybe need to look underneath to find the plumbing and waste valve from the tank......usually in front of or behind the rear wheel and should be a simple lever tap.

    bugger.....you posted this as i posted my reply :Doh:

    look in the cassette opening and you'll see the flush water level clear plastic tube......carefully pull off the top tube joint (grey rubber sleeve) and point it downwards.

    this is the correct way to drain the tank.

    I'm beginning to think you mean the flush tank, in which case I believe it is supplied from the main freshwater supply, so there would be nothing to drain.

    Do you have to fill a seperate tank with Flushing Water, if not then jobs a good-un.

    we do not have this problem with an RV

    Having an RV means we do not have to lug cassettes to a dumping point.. we do it in style pump it with a macerator.. fresh water is taken from our on board holding tanks... wicked I know.. but I love to sit and watch the euro vans lug the cassette to a elsan point when we are at shows or on a site... most RV's can last 5 days before we worry about getting the hose out and connecting up to dump.

    I've always had motorhomes where the toilet flush water was taken from the main water tank, however, I think there should be some sort of pipe,tube or such like located in the toilet cassettee compartment which you use to empty the flush tank, failing that, you'll have to keep 'flushing' the toilet.
