Almost impossible since there are shapes in the internal moulding which will trap water and traces of moisture will remain. Best course would be to rinse out with bicarbonate of soda solution at the beginning of the season. You will probably be using bicarb solution when you flush out the domestic water supply tank and pipework and wipe down the interior of the fridge so this is just one more of those seasonal jobs.When flushing out flush-water reservoir tank rinse through afterwards with plain water to prevent any interference with lower tank additive action.

We have a water leak on a Thetford Style Plus toilet installed in our 2 1/2 year old Fifth Wheel RV. The toilet flange bolts appear to be tight and there is no visual evidence of black water leak or seepage. I suspect the problem may be with the water valve, but will have to pull the toilet to be able to inspect. Any advice?


Thetford says that the vacuum breaker is usually at fault. I have the same problem. Try changing the vacuum breaker first (it is easier than the water valve).

Casset toilet will not pump water for flush


Open door, remove toilet cassette unit, look in under flush water tank, observe a short metal blade that actuates a safety switch. This is between two plastic guides. Now look just outside the right hand guide. There you will find the fuse which is a standard blade type. Just pull it down to remove from holder. You will probably find it rated at 3 amp. If it is blown you will probably have to replace pump. Looks difficult but is actually dead easy. Instructions come with replacement Thetford pump. Only problem you may have is a perished sealing ring on the paper holder cup which is no longer available as a spare. Just use a good quality outdoor type sealant as a replacement. Be sure to recover any bits of broken ring from the flush water tank as these can be drawn into your replacement pump and cause it to sieze. At minimum this will cause you to say bother! Happy repairing.

Flushing knob on a C2 Theford cassette porta potti hard to turn


Hi! Spray blade which closes holding tank with silicone spray. Make sure spray goes under lip of sealing ring. Also spray around holding tank actuator knob allowing to penetrate underneath to shaft. Don't use a silicone grease as this will gum up the works. If you can't get hold of a light silicone spray try using household type silicone polish intended for furniture. Wipe off any surplus as only thin film required.John Long
