Hi, i have just purchased our first caravan and before we give it a test run, I have been sorting out a couple of bits.

One issue I'm having a problem resolving though, is the toilet; it's a Thetford c200 cassette. The sliding shutter gets stuck when trying to close it and then doesn't 'grip' on the closing slot when using the slider on the toilet. I can see that there is a second smaller arm (with the hole in it) that sits on top and closes with the shutter but when it has been opened, falls off the back and prevents it closing. If I put my hand in (not too bad whilst it is still clean!) and lift it up, it closes again. Where should this arm sit and is there an easy fix? Hopefully the pictures will better explain!....... I can't see how to add pictures so hopefully the description will do!

Thanks in advance for your help and advice.

Sir DustyDog is an expert on repairing toilet flaps. He will probably look in later and give you advice. :)

Seen a youtube video of repairing and fixing the casette toilets, seals and arm etc.. go onto youtube and type c200 toilet and you should be able to find it.

As well as YouTube Thetford have good information on their website along with part numbers for individual models.

They beat me to it.
Follow the You tube demo step by step. Change the moving parts shown and change the main seal lubricating it with some silicone spray.
Good luck and do wear rubber gloves washing your hands thoroughly afterwards :)

I massively appreciate the help but I've checked out the video and the Thetford part list and can't see this arm with the hole in it sitting on top of the blade. I'm sure I'm being really dim. Is there anyway I can send a picture of it?
