Rinse / clean the bowl. Some RV toilets do a better job than others, and are designed to minimize water usage - so if needed the spray is used.

Why not in some - dollars and the bottom line for manufacturers. After having one in the last RV, found that they were routed off the vacuum breaker(SeaLand brand) and often failed at ~$40 a shot plus an hour's time for repairs. A brush is cheaper and lasts literally forever.

Used as a bidet? - I found that other parts got too wet - me and the RV

I use it to spray my granddaughter every once in awhile and hear her yell "Nana, Pop Pop just sprayed me with toilet water again".

Toilet sprayer....same reason kitchen sink has one.
To rinse with.

And just like the kitchen sprayer, the toilet sprayer is connected downstream f water supply so that water pressure is on sprayer ONLY when facility is being used (kitchen faucet or toilet flush valve)

I have one on my toilet....same one/same vacuum breaker/same water valve.
And we FTd for 7 yrs. It got USED a LOT so reliability is not a real issue.

Anything made by man fails from time to time........it happens.

Some toilet vacuum breakers are designed for adding the optional sprayer and some toilets have to have a different vacuum breaker.
Those that are 'dual purpose' have a closed off stub on vacuum breaker where the sprayer hose gets attached-------end of stub is drilled open for sprayer use.

Added one to my class A when I had it. I think an Oxygenics sprayer would have been a better choice.

figured out that if I wash and sanitize the bowl and then wax it with a good coating of McGuire's (sp?) the sprayer is not needed nearly as much. Fewer clingons ( for you Star Trek fans) Anything left rinses off easily

With ours, we use the handheld shower to fill toilet or rinse it.
