If you were to empty the cassette toilet daily, your toilet chemicals are only going to last half as long therefore it would be cheaper in the long term to buy a pair of AA batteries for the toilet light when required. Not unless of course money is no object and can afford to flush your money down the loo.

"Can someone explain why there is a separate battery to drive this warning light, and not the leisure battery. Seems even more odd when on some models there is an electric flush."

at a guess cos its a cheap led thing which works off 3 volts or less and they cant be arsed to transform it down or wire it in.. :)

A led will still need a resistor in series for 3v. A larger value resistor will cost no extra.

Not all caravans, trailer tents and tents have a leisure battery. These unfortunates have enough of the brown stuff poured on them without Thetford joining in.

Fair point. Never thought of it like that.

Not bothered renewing the batteries on ours as they should really be removed over winter when not in use,our our last lot corroded.
I seem to be the only one in our family that notices when the loo is full,dont know why.
