Potty Talk..... How to go in a motorhome

    Sorry for degrading the conversation but having recently upgraded from a classic VW to a motorhome I was looking forward to having a fixed bathroom rather than a portapoti. I am a big lad, I was a former prop forward in my youth so I find I am struggling to relieve myself. I had hoped that goggle would have some tips but there is nothing I can find.

    For a number 1 I have to do a John Snow and take the knee or the splash goes everywhere.

    For a number 2 the issue is that I can only fit one "exit" at a time within the gap provided. If I try to tuck everything in the gap its like I am partially closing the exits and it becomes uncomfortable or messy to say the least.

    Is it just me or are there any tips to help?

    Let's just say, that's just a voyage of discovery you're going to have to do on your own and best of luck

    Think you'll have to adapt to it unfortunately or use public/site toilets as much as you can.

    Chris, wonder if you had a separate container for the front end would it make it easier. Something like the pee bottle they give you in hospital. When you have done your business you can empty the bottle into the pot. \ud83e\udd14

    You could try a funnel with a bit of hose pipe attached. Might be a problem with the other

    Great tips, the funnel and pipe will be getting a test this weekend. It would work for both 1 & 2's emoticon_img

    Funnel and tube did not work as hoped for No 2....... Caused quite a serious contamination of the grey [yellow now] water on first test as most went down the shower drainemoticon_img.

    The good news is I have found a new technique that uses careful placement of my parts and body position prior to taking position on the throne. The preparation is a pain as its akin to a Japanese ceremony with getting everything perfect but at least I longer fear completing my task.
