    It might be just an open air bidet. :)

    then do it the way we do it on ths rallies in fields with a pit dug for the waste....take a bucket of water or a gallon container over with the cassette

    another one is an old lemonade plastic bottle of water then you can squeeze it to force the water into the cassette faster

    The good news is, we came across the exact same thing in Germany last year, and there is a way to do it.
    The bad news is, I can't remember what it is.
    Sorry. :(

    No idea if this would be right or not - to be honest it seems a bit grim - but is the water activated on the pipe from when it goes horizontal to vertical? In which case once you've emptied your cassette put the end of the pipe in your cassette outlet and lower to horizontal and then vertical to reactivate the water.

    Have to say that my idea does seem a bit :sick: but it's all I can come up with and I take no responsibility should you try it and end up with the remnants of your cassette on your feet.

    If you use bio liquid it will be a lot thinner and come out a lot easier.
    OR do as the other do go to the DRINKING WATER and use that after you have topped up.. ot aim it from a distance without putting the neck to it .!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Use bio fluid and it doesn't really need rinsing, though I do it occasionally when water is available.

    Sometimes though multiple rinsing is the only way to get everything out - I speak from painful experience :sick:

    some of the "logs" I have seen jammed in a cassette I swear a chainsaw and lumberjack would have been easier. You should train your bum muscles to bite them off into manageable sizes. if constipated, learn to chew them up before downloading into the cassette:rofl::rofl:

    OK I think this option is the best ;) fill up and wash out:sick:

    It's great the Germans provide Aires, just that they seem to over engineer them! The previous night's aire had a huge metal grey water disposal system complete with motion detection sensors and super Dooper spray system. Only problem was even my wide track FIAT chassis at the back was to narrow to go over it without dropping into the very low metal tray. So I ended up having to manouver all around it and got a free under chassis wash :) Just a simple drain would have been fine!

    dont use any chemicals and only wash the cassette out after you have completely finished your tour.
    it works . i did work in sewage and the scientists told me the way to do it .
    the bacteria helps break it down . dont empty till nearly full that keeps the bacteria in the cassette and working . washing out gets rid of good bacteria .

    I think there may be a Jedi stuck in there, which would explain why it's not working very well.
