But, I recall Lil Snoozy's toilet does not have it's own water supply, it pulls from your tank so that my procedure only works if the cassette has it's own water supply separate from the rest of the unit. Check with Alan or Nick.

Interesting point. There is plumbing from the water supply back there.
I know there is plumbing back to there for the shower. So it may draw flush water also.
I will check.

If you do not have to add water to your cassette, then it is drawing from your main tank.

Two last comments on the cassette toilet fill:

A cassette toilet is usually (maybe not always) plumbed into the trailer, rather than having a separate water tank, because it is built into the trailer body so the waste tank cassette can be removed through an outside hatch. This antifreeze flush idea seems ideal for a portable toilet, which always has its own supply tank.

A plumbing antifreeze based on propylene glycol would be sticky; one of the alcohol-only types would be more suitable for this non-standard use, and I assume that it would be diluted to just strong enough to not freeze.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

We have had 2 cassette toilets and both had their own fresh water supply. I didn't even know it was possible to have one plumbed into the fresh water supply but that would have helped me avoid a lot of spills! I don't know if I would like that though after taking a minute to think about it.

Just curious: why not? I can't imagine why I would want an additional chore of separately filling another tank, unless the trailer had no pump and a toilet having its own tank could run without power.

I'm the only one that actually ever keeps track of how full the waste tank is for one and we have a son with Down syndrome who is an adult and likes to "flush" and with an endless supply of water............ Plus, it does give us the ability to anti-freeze the fresh water supply in the toilet and I'm guessing probably easier to replace and cheaper with the water tank just a part of the cassette. I like things to be as simple as possible.

Makes me think of that old Doris Day movie with all the soap suds - open the door to the trailer when you stop..................... I hope everyone realizes that you do have to be careful what kind of concoctions you mix and put in the toilet because some are toxic.

I should have said "produce toxic fumes". Ever see the toilet "smoke"?
