  1. From Jacky Jacky in 2012

     

    You may find this of interest. This is from the Thetford Australia website in Maintenance Tips section:

     

    "Maintenance tips for your toilet

    The waste tank seal, the automatic pressure release vent seal and the cap seal must be cleaned regularly. When the toilet is being used frequently, monthly cleaning is generally sufficient.

     

    We advise cleaning the seals and valve blade with Thetford Bathroom Cleaner.

     

    Note! Never use household cleaners (Solvents or other powerful cleaning agents). These may cause permanent damage to the seals and other toilet components.

     

    For cleaning your toilet:

    Squirt Thetford Bathroom Cleaner into the toilet bowl.

    Flush the bowl with water and wipe down the rest of the toilet with a damp cloth.

    Tip! For a really shining toilet, dry it with a soft dry cloth after cleaning.

    Thoroughly clean the seals and valve blade, using Thetford Seal Lubricant and wipe them over with a cloth or a piece of toilet paper. Repeat the above operation if the seal and blade are dirty or if opening and closing the blade is difficult.

    Note! Never use Vaseline or any vegetable oil. These may cause leakage.

    When the toilet is not being used for a long period, it is advisable to clean the seals and then coat them lightly with Thetford Seal Lubricant. This will ensure that they remain in good condition (supple).

     

    N.B. The valve blade seal is a part of the toilet that is subject to wear. Depending on the extent and manner of maintenance, after a certain period the seal will lose quality and must be replaced.

    Back to top."

     

    We use Olive oil to lubricate the rubber around the blade seal and have done so without any problems. Giving the cassette a good soak, as suggested in previous posts, empty and let dry out also helps reduce any odour and 'plaque' build up.

  4. Hi One & All

     

    Robin and I use the road down the middle from Emerald to all points South to avoid the highway traffic and have often passed through Murgon without stopping. I would appear that we now have a reason to do so.

     

    Neither KOG or I have any affiliation to or connection with the following. I have been to their website and it will be in my next trip planner.

     

    I would appreciate any feedback from members who have already stayed there or when they do so.

  6. I added an aluminium checker plate to the rear of my XC3 earlier this year. A great addition for storage of snatch strap, trolley jack, camp ovens, firewood etc. We used the existing rear bar mounting, extended the shs and inserted a tight fit smaller shs which went right through the existing and extension. Not only did I get great storage but took 85 kg off my ball weight.

     

    Photos of the box before & after fitting are below

     

    We clocked up some 11,500 km earlier this year including some really rugged roads through the Gawler Ranges to & from Mt Ive station and Lake Gairdner without any worries at all, Have checked all mountings and supports and still as fitted. Only problem was condensation when in the deserts mainly. Really only two options insulate or vent. After much research I opted for venting as in the pdf file attached. Problem now solved and looking forward to our next getaway early January.

     

    Cheers
