Recently in a hot climate we were able to locate our toilet without looking. Tried cleaning every part with great diligence. Sprayed nice smelly stuff which lasted a short time and finally in dispare, we read the instructions.
We surely did not need to do this after many years motorhoming, after all I am a man and do not need to read instructions.
The guidance says, before use, flush the toilet. Leave the flap open when using the toilet and flush when finished then close the flap. I think it went on to say never drive with the flap shut, or was it 'open' but by then I became a man again and stopped reading.
We now have to use our eyes to find the toilet again.

It also says be carefull opening the flap if you have climbed to a higher altitude as the difference in pressure could cause a problem!!!!!!!!!!

Modern ones have a pressure relief valve. Found out the old ones from the early 90' s didn't the hard way.

Surprised the instructions say leave flap open when using the toilet. I never leave the flap open when using the toilet, you never know what might splash up and damage your dangly bits, or at least turn it blue, or worse, br..., no wont go there.

I have never read the instructions.

I just worked out routine of flap open for use, flush before No. 2, sluice with shower head, flap closed and at all other times.

Double check flap closed before removing cassette. Bio washing tablet in cassette.

Too much information, and complexity. I'm going to resort to finding a suitable hedge to hide behind :)

A the traditional method. Halcyon days, but weather dependent, and a thistle on the cheek or in the eye can smart.

I wonder how many others have read "How to use the cassette toilet" I know I had not.
We men are convinced we know everything and I was surprised to find I did not.

Oh god - I didn’t know you were supposed to leave the flap open when using it - I have been doing it with the flap shut and then opening it, then flushing, then closing............

Take deep breaths and breathe............panic ended..........

Ps don’t tell my hubby as just asked him and he said as the OP instructed otherwise it could smell:unsure::whistle:

Do you take a dump at home with the toilet lid down?

No!...... Then why close the bomb bay doors in the van?

The flap's there to keep the contents and aroma in while travelling, it's not an inspection shelf..... Unless you're German of course..... They seem to take great delight in inspecting their turds before flushing.

35 years ago I moved into a new girlfriend's flat in Cologne and it took me 3 years to raise the courage to ask her the reason for the half-shelf in the pan. It turned out to be quite logical, although not for the inspection purpose. o_O
