Thetford 465 electric flush-anyone have one of these?

Ordered a Thetford 465 electric flush (battery operated) porta potty for Christmas for our camper. Why do they call it electric flush?
It is taller than our old potty-good for us older campers.
It also has a bigger clean water and waste storage and a drain spout for easier emptying.

Anyone have one and if so-how do you like it?

It has good reviews so thought we would try it.

Will try it out when we get it and will let you know what we think of it.

Happy New Year!

I didn't have the "Electric Flush" version, but I did have the Thetford 465 manual flush porta potty in my Compact Jr. The only difference is while the manual flush has a plastic bellows bulb you press down on to siphon the water out of the supply tank into the bowl, the "electric" version has a battery operated sump-pump that you only have to press an "on" switch to pump water from the supply tank into the bowl.

I really liked the size of the thing, more comparable to an RV toilet than a dinky little porta potty not much bigger than a chamber pot. (Gawd, I'm old enough to remember using a chamber pot!)

Thetford porta potti

Have received our Thetford 465 electric flush. The electric flush is no big deal though. Instead of pumping or bellows mechanism it has a battery operated push button. We do like the height of the toilet which is 16 1/2 inches tall.
It has the large tank capacity and seems to seal tightly after flushed. We have had other brands that don't do seal tight! Smellyyyyyy!!!
We are pleased with it so far.
