Found this on a trawl of the net as my bog has decided not to flush...

http://www.thetford.eu/web/show/id=51498/langid=42

It's Thetford's own list of repair instructions, nice of them to tell you how to do things...

It's not the tank microswitch, although not sure if it's getting power....

Looks like it's a 5l bottle of water and aquarinse for the week, lol...

It never rains...

And the water pump's leaking :roll:

Think I'll just get a new one.

I've taken the liberty of copying an edited version into the 'Guides & How To' section :D

To be honest, I'm not sure who fitted the cassette, but I don't think it was a professional job... or even much of a competent DIY one either... The hole cut in the side of the body is a hell of a mess, the seams don't fit, etc., etc., etc....

I'm hoping to get into the workings of the cassette when we get back, and also fix a leaking water pump...

Actually, scratch that, I'm going to replace the water pump, then see what I can do with the Thetford...

Last time (on the caravan) it was the waste tank microswitch, but it appears not this time... :roll:

I repaired my electric flush the other day on my C2, most probably know this but in case any don't. Pull out the toilet roll holder container to expose flush tank and pump, undo screw & remove pump, turn pump impellor by hand with a small screwdriver etc a few times (as this jams and is quite often the problem), replace, sorted. Worked for me and took less than 5 minutes !
