 Bathroom Business Explained

Scroll down to find list of supplies

NOTE: Dave and I decided to not use the camper toilet system because we don't want to clean blackwater tanks. We also don't want to use public toilets since the COVID virus has arrived. Instead, our toilet is turned into a human litterbox. After many experiments, we have put together the best layered contents that makes it easy to put together, remains odorless and is easy to dispose of. It's a layer system of products that are highly absorbant and mostly natural. Scroll down to find list of supplies

 

I started this as overnight convenience. The toilet elevator is necessary when two people are using the bathroom over night and Dave's junk had plenty of space to hang. Because there is no liquid in the toilet, driving around with a toilet full of pine pellets is not a concern and always availble for use even on the road.

 

To discard contents, pull up garbage bag excess straight up. (Leave the contents in the bowl until after you tie the first knot.) The training pad automatically wraps over the contents  diaper-style making the chore much easier. Tie a knot close to "the bundle" so you can flip the rest of the bag a second time over "the bundle" for a double wrap. Tie final-second knot and discard "the double-wrapped bundle" at any gas station while getting fuel or at the camp ground dumpster.

Here is our best layered toilet preparation for convenience, and odor control. Works for two people.

  • Purchase a toilet-seat riser that fits. The toilet-seat riser is needed to add more depth to the shallow toilet installed.

  • Keep toilet cover and toilet seat in the upright position.

  • Purchase XL Puppy Training Pads. Each training sheet holds 8 cups of liquids. 

  • Place one layer as the first layer inside the toilet for an added layer of protection. You won't need to change this one unless there is a leak - highly unlikely.

  • Purchase 13-gallon garbage bags. Place one garbage bag inside the toilet. Spread smoothly around the bottom and edges. Using the excess garbage bag, cover the whole outside of the toilet and rim. (This excess will be used to wrap up and tie up contents before discarding.)

  • Take another absorbent liner (training pad) and place it on top of the garbage bag lining the toilet. Spread evenly around the bowl and over the edge of the toilet seat until all of the inside of the toilet is covered. (The lid will hold all in place.)

  • Add pine pellets to cover around 1" deep over the absorbant  pad. Pine pellets absorb more than 500% of their own weight and the natural pine scent along with the carbon filled training pad helps to reduce odor.)

  • Add cedar shavings  to cover the pine pellets. Cedar offers a pleasant odor and is absorbent, effectively absorbing urine and covering the odor.

  • Place the the toilet seat lid and cover over all. This helps keep the contents in position and gives a normal feel to the experience.

  • To discard contents, pull up garbage bag excess straight up. (Leave the contents in the bowl until after you tie the first knot.) The training pad automatically wraps over the contents diaper-style making the chore much easier.  Tie a knot close to "the bundle" so you can flip the rest of the bag a second time over "the bundle" for a double wrap. Tie final-second knot and discard "the double-wrapped bundle" at a gas station while getting fuel or at the camp ground dumpster.
