I bet I know....... do they use it to flush it out before leaving the site or dump station......my friend did the same....


Interesting, they stick this sprayer into the toilet to "flush it (I assume black tank) out" and then re-attach it to its' holder which is right next to the toilet. How sanitary. To think that the next person to use the toilet will be in close proximity to the sprayer and hose that was just used to flush out a holding tank. Wonder if they ever think about washing down the hose and sprayer with any disinfectant or even a wet one. Or do they just leave it as was used.

Well not sure how this person uses it... but......my friend set it up the same way because he had witnessed what I go through when I leave the campsite...(by the way I do not do this all the time but sometimes I get the urge to do a good job).
Besides the chemicals, etc. I actually take the hose and flush the tank. I know of others that do the same all the time but I just do it once in a while. But the fanatic he is he installed something like this person did to make in easier. I love it. If I had the same set up I would do the same. But not reading your message correctly... I guess now I know what you mean..... if your not a good shot you could be touching....ahhh do not even want to think about it.

I guess you could install it a bit higher. Right now I use the shower head that extends.

Hey Lantley I don't suppose you would like to give up some dimensions and supply list for that bike rack? That is one of the best ones I've seen good job.

One of the best mods I made on my trailer was the curved shower curtain rod. It sure makes the shower seem larger.

Forgive my ignorance but, what is the purpose of the "toilet rinse"? I've never seen one for a residential toilet so don't know why one would be needed for an RV.

It serves 3 purposes you can rinse down the bowl when stuff sticks to the sides. You can also open the flapper and rinse below the toilet. Finally I can diconnect the hose spray nozzle and attach the toilet wand to rinse out the black tank. No more dragging in the hose from outside. Did I say I also use the hose sprayer when cleaning the tub.
This is not an original idea Thetford makes a toilet with an optional sprayer Thetford toilet with sprayer

No, I don't actually have to stick the sprayer into the toilet hole to spray it down. That is what I have a wand for. I can spray below the flapper by simply aiming into the whole from at least 1'-2' away.

Check Out Bike Rack
I purchased the rack. It works great. Bikes are always in view. Easy to load bikes. Bikes do not block headlights.
