I got it on amazon. Surprisingly easy to setup. You pull it out and give it a twist. Each layer then interlocks into each other. It even supported my heavy butt.

The cover flips a full 270, so you cant lean on it and break it (like the reliance potty lids).
So is it pretty easy to dump out every day. we would only use it for nighttime pee breaks. We usually camp at campgrounds for other bathroom needs. we don't boondock camp.

Hmmm... Ordered a device charging back-up. I travel with a Milwaukee cordless drill/driver from their M12 line and a couple spare batteries. They seem to have a compact charger now that can recharge their M12 batteries via outlet, or with a USB port in your vehicle (Probably pretty slow to charge via USB). And it looks like you can also use it with an M12 battery as a device charger. There's obviously lots of power banks out there for recharging phones and devices, but since I already travel with M12s it seems like a compact back-up idea and small enough to throw in a pouch, or pack while on a day-trip away from camp. They're like $54 normally, but I saw a discounted one on Ebay for under $20 including postage. I assume other cordless tool systems may be coming out with similar compact options, might be worth watching for.
I bought the 12V charger for my Ryobi 18V system. The charger stays in the camper.

You use a liner bag. I then use either gelling powder (urine gel) but I am trying out these commode pads.. it seems to work well. The powder does about 32 oz with a little less than a tablespoon of powder. The pad says it does 32 oz. If you pee more than that dump either more powder or another pad.

Only 1 more counter to paint, flooring to lay down( that will be tricky, my fault i like creative patterns and lots of cutting peel and stick). Have a very long wishlist. And have been learning about generators and tire and wheel sizes.

It's been too cold to do anything in the trailer itself, not to mention windy. I noticed the other day that the cover is developing a hole over one gutter spout, which is out of my reach for patching.
I decided I wanted to add an April trip to Grand Canyon into the mix, but so far, have been out of luck in finding campsites in the park that our trailer will fit in. I sort of expected that, since it's only about 3 months away.

Kitphantom, we have had our share of days here down south, heck we even had snow. I'm on call this weekend so should be able to get some stuff knocked out. Did see someone on here painted the vinyl flooring, so thats in my head instead of peel and stick. I'm also planning an April trip but not sure because I was supposed to have already done a shakedown this month. Just got to get TV back in full working order. Did manage a driveway camp and was awoke freezing at 4am, back to the house. lol

Rebuilt the upper crank lift assembly. Should be good for another 17 years. Pretty good video on YouTube by Carolina Campers, and parts provided by Coleman Popup Parts.
Thanks Derek, and Chuck!
