Cassette Toilet

Hi guys/gals!

My wife and I just bought a used popup (2000 Starmaster Starcraft). We are heading out on our first camping adventure tomorrow, for the weekend. We are very excited, but I am a bit nervous as well, since I have only run through the setup once, while being coached by the previous owner. He went over everything, but it was a lot to take in. I have been reading through a few camping message boards just trying to soak up any knowledge/tips/etc. I have a question regarding the cassette toilet. I am posting in the general area because even though I have a popup, i don't "think" the cassette toilet is specific to only popups. Forgive me if I posted wrong.

I know that it has a holding tank underneath, and I am comfortable in how to empty it, should we use it. I have read that I need chemicals in the waste tank? Is this true, and what kind? The campground we are going to has water hookups in the site we reserved. Will this supply water to the toilet as well, or do I need to do something more?

Sorry for the remedial question, but thank you very much for your advice and suggestions!

Jay

If it is like my old toilet it has two tanks. The top holds water and the bottom holds waste.The chemical goes into the bottom and plain water in the top.They come apart to dump.I found a short length of hose reduces splash when dumping.

Forgive me, but this device sounds like what some people think they need to spite Flying J. Was the cassette toilet designed to dump in the dumper, or into any other toilet?

I had a Palomino Pop-up with as cassette toilet. On my trailer I had to remove the cassette from inside the rig through the entry door. I have seen other rigs where the cassette pulls out of the side of the rig.

Cassettes are typically filled from the on-board fresh water tank or city fill as part of the flush cycle. The chemical required for the cassette is a lot less than I use and it should be detailed on the instruction label of the product you are using. A lot of cassettes are going to be on the order of about 5 to 8 gallons I expect due to weight which is 8.33 pounds per gallon. I had a small measuring cup as I recall that came with the tank. Thetford made the cassette I was using and getting info on that device should be available on their website. I remember one thing ... it was definitely inconvenient however we all had to start someplace!

TandW, There's a swing around type of a spout and you can dump it in any sanitary type sewer connection. There's a release handle and a vent when your ready to let er' go. I've seen quite a few folks dumping at "Hooks" as well!

Perfect DriVer! That is exactly what I was looking for. Mine has a side compartment with access to the tank from the outside. It looks to be about 5 gal.

Thanks again!

Chief, I have a nice Montesino Grand Corona wrapped in Connecticut shade that I am going to go and fire up on the back porch. I need a little break!
