Ever had to rinse the toilet, sink or shower in your RV only to end up using a cup or some other temporary solution? Well so have we. You may be one of the lucky few with a solution installed from the manufacturer if you have a late model RV. But, for most of us the next best solution is to create a RV toilet rinse mod. The premise is simple. Locate the line that delivers water into the toilet. Typically, it is found behind the toilet either exposed (such as in the photos below) or it will come with some type of aesthetic cover to hide it from sight. Then it is just a matter of splicing the line and adding a valve with a splitter to a standard hose connection.
RV Toilet Rinse Mod Examples:
The photos were posted by Lantley at RV.net to show not only this idea off, but to show how to permanently connect a hose and spray nozzle. He also offered a clever way to store it using a piece of PVC pipe mounted to the cabinet.
Materials Needed for the RV Toilet Rinse Mod:
- Bypass Valve
- Hose Adapter
- Section of Flexible Hose
- Spray Nozzle
- 1-2” Pipe Section for Nozzle Holder (optional)
The estimated expense to complete this RV toilet rinse mod is around $50-$75 depending on if you have some of the necessary parts lying around. If you have a background in plumbing this should be a very simple mod taking only an hour or less to complete once you have the parts together. On the other hand, if you aren’t proficient with RV plumbing you could end up with no water to your RV toilet! So please be careful when working on a mod like this!
