Pick up the cover on the box that's at the back of the toilet. The switch is a small toggle switch inside.

When I wanted to keep the ball open, I used the two person approach.

One person flushed the toilet, while I pulled the fuse out in the bedroom fuse panel. It was pretty easy as soon as I heard the toilet ball pop open, I pulled the fuse and it stayed open.

Perhaps we don't have the same model toilet. On ours when I pick up the china cover on the rear of the toilet, there's a small printed circuit board mounted vertically just right of center. There's a lit green LED on it. At the very top of the board is a mini toggle switch that needs to be pushed toward the handle. then when the handle is depressed the bottom valve opens and stays open until the switch is again moved to the center. I think moving the switch away from the handle shuts off the toilet. If your system is different, a call to Tiffin would be in order.

My toilet operates just like Joe-K's. There's NO circuit board just inside the rear cover. I installed a simple ON/OFF switch in the 12v wire for the toilet and secured it with Velcro just inside the cover. Now, I NO LONGER need to pull the fuse to de-energize the circuit/toilet so the ball valve can be cleaned.

Now that's a great idea.

The other benefit of installing a switch like Rob suggests is that if your microswitch inside the toilet base becomes mis-adjusted, you can stop the constant flushing action of the toilet. On our second trip after getting our rig, I had to pull the toilet from the floor and adjust the microswitch. Until I did that, it constantly flushed by itself.

Just a little annoying having to pull the fuse constantly.
