    I can see it now, in the future these will be the only way you can empty your cassette under new Caravan Club "health & safety" rules, at £5 a time of course.

    It's not exactly difficult or time consuming to empty the thunderbox. I would also doubt it takes as long (3mins) as that machine.
    Seems that they're trying to fix a non-existent problem.

    I agree BUT there are some with week stomachs who will pay to avoid doing it.

    Seems like a good idea so long as it's optional. Wouldn't want chemicals .. maybe there's an option for that

    You've still got to take the cap off, and thus get a nostril full of "sweet aroma" :)

    Hang on that one puts the cap on
    its mechanical, Its electrical.
    Q. where does one "RENT" a spare cassette from when it go's Tits up and the engineers 3 days away
    Or my cassette comes back out covered with!!!
    Do I want to handle my cassette after its been through a multiple population S**t swilling machine ? NO
    Have i faith in its fully automated hygiene systems NO!!!
    Me thinks not, some one should direct the CC to a few of these posts!!
    especially to the board of directors who voted these in and have never ever used a caravan or motor home
    G
    PS I seriously suspect the supposed addition of chemical + two ltrs (of what) is to discuise the fact it cant gaurantee to fully empty when its finished:sick:

    Pity the poor sod who is locked in side the "machine" beavering away when you put the cassette in. Perhaps this is what George meant when he said we need to work like the Chinese?

    I cant see why, after all, it's only chewed bread (y)...... And anyway, is this Thetford's way around no one wanting to buy their grossly inflated cleaning and sanitising additives?

    Add 2 litres of water? That's a day sooner it'll need emptying again for us. :mad:
