There seems to be a lot of misinformation on here about the cassette toilet.
I just read an article from a RV magazine about dumping regular black tanks. There were statements like holding the hose under the valve to catch any leaks after taking the hose loose. Using a clear adapter so you wont take the hose loose before the tank is empty. How to get stuck solids out of the slinky. Wheew! The cassette is easy to use. Just slide it out, carry to dump point or toilet. It is completely sealed until you rotate the spout and take off the spout lid. You place the spout in the toilet or dump pipe and push the button. After dumping add a little water, rinse and pour it out again. Add your chem, close and slid it back into the port. Very easy and clean. Some of you would rather deal with black tanks. That is OK with me. I just get tired of the constant misinformation by advocators of the old system.

The nice thing about cassette toilets, other than convenience, is the ease of using one in the winter. My cassette in my T@da had it's own supply tank, so in the winter I'd use automotive windshield washer antifreeze to flush with. Too bad Parkliner's set up is connected to the trailer's water supply, makes this adaptability harder to accomplish.

Here is a picture of the Thetford cassette tank.

Mine is an earlier model without the wheels.

The A/C works but it could be stronger. The new one will probably be much better and I gather from the above posts that just the fact that it'll be on the roof will make it more efficient. ParkLiner will not be manufacturing the old models anymore, so if that's what you end up wanting, you'll have to buy used.
Thanks, Mary. I re-read my question and realized I bumbled it! I think I may have confused everyone. I am anxiously awaiting the new Parkliner to appear at a local dealer. Since they've been built with the under-seat AC in the past, I wondered if I should ask them if that configuration is still available. I hate making holes in the roof but that's just me.

And based on that article, there's alot of misinformation about conventional RV tanks as well.

There are no leaks when disconnecting the sewer hose after dumping. If anything, a few drops of gray water. The black tank gets dumped first, then the gray.

The clear adapter is fine but I've never needed one to tell if dumping is completed.

Stuck solids in the slinky? I suppose that could happen but it's never happened to me. If the black tank is maintained properly (we keep enough water in it to cover the bottom of the tank and use the packets), solids become liquids and don't clog anything. And again, any residue from the black tank in the sewer hose gets flushed by the gray water.

Really, there's no "wheew". Dumping RV tanks is easy peezy.

Mary; there is probably an easier way, but using the search function at the top of the page I couldn't find what you want, So here's what will work; go into "registry" near top of page, then find "Brian M. in NY" (members are in alphabetical order), then click on him and you can get to all his posts. Scroll down through until you find his posts of "reset air conditioner". It may have some good info, I know he did some mod that seemed to help.

Yeah I did realize it was written for newbies. I just wanted to correct some misconceptions about the cassette system (same a a bucket etc.)

For the folks that are looking for a Parkliner without a roof a/c because they did not want holes in the roof.... Just to clarify - the original Parkliner may have had the a/c down low but there was a HUGE hole in the roof for the escape hatch as well as a normal size hole for the Maxx Air fan.

Hey Y'all,
I was at the Liberty Outdoors factory in Liberty, NC, this May and got a tour to see the corporate in-progress conversion the factory for ParkLiner, as well as setting up the additional MyPod manufacturing at the factory. They will be producing at their largest scale ever by the end of 2017.
For all that are curious about the new ParkLiner, it will be showcased at the Eggshells at The Outer Banks rally, as well as the other premiere Liberty Outdoor brand trailers. The representatives will be on hand to answer any questions that you may have.
For rally reservations, go to Eggshells in The Outer Banks - Fiberglass Travel Trailer Rally

A recent Ohio factory tour here. Clean and organized, Wow. I'm not sure where all the GFM Industries, LLC , Little Guy Worldwide, LLC merged to form Liberty Outdoors, factories are all spread out at. The company sure seems to keep growing and growing
https://youtu.be/W_7Bzb1DegA

Did any interesting information or impressions stand out for you on the NC factory tour? Their latest press release said 16 and 20 foot models are coming.

I agree with Robert here. When we were waiting on our camper, my two biggest, "wake me up in the middle of the night" fears was dumping the tanks and backing into a campsite. And both ended up being no big deal. I did a lot of worrying over nothing.

With a black tank you "port" a lot more "potty".

Um, no you dont transport anything. You dump and then you leave. And you dont have to hand carry a container to a dump point to do it.

Honestly, the debate about black tanks here has me bewildered. They are simple, they work, and they've been in use for many decades. Each and every waste disposal method has it's plusses and minuses.
