Scratched seat – When traveling the toilet lid rubs against the toilet seat and scratches the plastic. Not only do the scratches look naff but they hurt your arse when you need to meditate (man thing!. So, find a little bit of foam, I used some draught excluder which I had and stick it to the inside of the lid. One piece on either side of the lid should do nicely! It also stops the toilet seat from slamming shut if it’s left up when you drive away (another man thing!)
Loo Flush Button – Our last motorhome when you flushed the loo it had a reasonable button to press which activated the flush. On this motorhome however the button is flat and part of the surrounding panel, so if one of you gets up in the night you can make lots of noise fumbling around trying to find it. Or even worse, turn the light on and blind everyone. The solution, I had a pile of those little rubber pads you typically get with Ikea furniture for cupboards etc. Stick one on the toilets flush button to make a proper button like they should have done in the first place. Cost nothing as I had some anyway.
Cleaning the toilet – What else, oh yes the lovely job of cleaning the toilet cassette (the box where all the number 1’n’2’s go) Every couple of months I clean the inside thoroughly to keep any nasty niffs at bay, You get a build up of limescale inside which seems to act like a sponge for… well take a guess. The top of the cassette comes off very easily so it’s easy to access the inside. The top mechanism is particularly prone to limescale build up so with the aid of some limescale remover, a scouring pad, an old disused toothbrush and a bit of elbow grease it looks as good as new inside now so that too will be ready for another clean when we get back home.
Keep it fresh – We have noticed that if you add a little fabric softener to the toilet cassette after cleaning it, it reduces the limescale build up (acts as water softener) and has a pleasant odour to boot. I usually use the stuff from after washing our clothes as it only gets wasted otherwise. All goes to keeping the pennies in our pockets.
