Our coach is R HOME. It has a home style toilet (Dometic Magnum Opus) that is far better than most and we use it solely. CG toilets are used by campers. We are not campers, we are full-timers. I have seen hundreds of CG toilets and frankly, my tush will never touch any of them as they are absolutely disgusting. Others don't care about keeping them clean and the CG generally only cleans them once per day if that, UGH! Ours gets cleaned after every use. It doesn't get any better than that.

Our home doesn't smell and if it did, I would be all over it looking to find out why. The tanks are there to use and when maintained well, they will work forever.

To each their own, however, I think you are way off base on this one.

Only my opinion.

First of all, my wife would NOT use the cg bathroom. I just read her the post and she laughed and said no way.

What a great thread to come back to; I have way too many issues and this is the reason we are still searching for another coach. No bed bug worries and the clean facilities are just a few feet south of us, we are not experts by any means but in the past we have never had odor issues associated with holding tanks. Maybe it was luck or maybe it was the manner in which we dumped the tanks; we waited until the black and gray were at least 3/4 full and always back flushed the black with the nice soapy gray slurry and we used a microbe treatment-all worked perfectly, including me while I was on the road.

Looking forward to being able to travel in civilization again----

I never used campground facilities as I knew my MH's bathroom was clean and not used by unknowns.

Some time ago we had a member post that his wife would not permit the toilet in the MH to be used as she was appalled by the thought of waste being stored in the holding tank under the bed.

Another member posted that she should consider where the waste was stored before it went into the holding tank.

Hope she didn't commit suicide with that reply.

I am amazed by those that feel the need to wear a body condom soaked in Lysol when pulling the holding tank valves. Have they never played in the yard? In a farmers field?

Gracious goodness, what did they think that gooey, slimy stuff on their shoes and hands was, anyway?

Or did mommy and daddy protect them from all of life's wonders?

Perhaps that is why so many of our youngsters are sick all the time and have no germ resistance whatsoever.

Well, tue add fuel to the fire, I'm in the camp of the poster. We do #2 in the camp bathroom. DW has a medical condition that requires a stoma and yes it is not a pleasant smell. Rather than making her be the only to use the camp restroom, which would make me seem like a pig, I and the kids do as well. I use the excuse of easier cleaning when we leave and less issues.

Oh, and just for fun, I keep food wastes out of the tanks for the most part too. The sites we stay never have full hookups but typically have basins to dump waste water.

We've not boon docked yet; DW wants access to a shower and running water that campgrounds bring. Don't shower in the rig just due to no full hookups.

I like to have full hook-ups so I can dump at my site because some people do make a mess at the dump stations. check this out.

I can just see it now. It's 34 degrees and pouring down rain and I'm going to tell my wife to go 50 yards outside in pitch black dark at 2 am to use the campground potty. I'll bet you won't even come to my funeral.

The only butt cheeks that touch the toilet seat in our fiver are those belonging to my wife and myself. That cannot be said for the campground bathrooms. Some that use campground bathrooms, like any other public facility, have lower sanitary standards than than I do. Ever had to clean the toilet seat before use become some mental defective didn't lift up the seat before he let fly with a stream of urine? I have, more times than I care to remember.

If I don't lift the seat in the fiver's bathroom, my wife knows right away who is to blame. Not that I would let fly without lifting the seat, as I have higher sanitary standards than some.

Probably in the black tank.

The only time I lift the seat is to clean the toilet.

I know better than to even suggest to DW that she use the cg facilities instead of what we have.
