    • I have made numerous trips across country and have a few comments that might help. First I am not a morning person so I like to take my time in the morning and typically get a late start.  I am lucky to be on the road by 9am.  Even then I usually plan for a quick fuel/pit stop in an hour or so.  Afterwards I drive until noon or so, maybe 4 hours total.  I stop for lunch and a 20 minute nap.  I find a short nap does absolute wonders.  After lunch and a nap, I typically drive another 3-4 hours tops.  Then I stop again for another snack and short nap or end my day at that point.  In the winter months with short days, I stop late afternoon well before dark.  If I am lucky and drove on the open road, I might have made it about 350 miles.  In the summer months I take my 4 pm nap and hit the road again often for another 4 hour session again stopping before dark.  There are plenty of times I have driven 600 or so miles with some serious snoozes and without becoming stressed or worn out. The distance depends on the driving conditions.  Good conditions on a Interstate can mean lots of stress free miles in a single day.  Because I never know exactly what to expect, I never plan and force myself into a schedule.  Instead I start looking for overnight spots and alternatives a couple of hours before I need to stop for the day.  Where I look also depends on the part of the country.  Many States have absolutely outstanding rest stops; others not so much.  Walmart Supercenters outside of urban areas are almost always a good choice.  Truck stops can be good or horrible.  In some areas the best choices might be local, BLM or forest service campgrounds.  Again, it is best to have several possibilities in mind.  Worst case I end up driving an hour or two after sunset.  That is typically more exhausting than the hours spent driving in daylight.  After a little experience on the road you can get really good at picking spots with nothing more than Google Maps as a guide. 
    • Why would you only do it 8 times when it needs 10 times ??? Just curious.  
    • Thanks all....Lots out there 
    • I have no way of knowing what is available in the Philippines, but I can tell you cassette toilets have been in use for more than 50 years in the USA and have been well designed and improved over the years. You are most likely to not have any odors if you follow the instructions that come with it. Our first fully contained RV had a cassette toilet and we used the chemicals as recommended and never had a complaint, other than that we got very tired of the frequent need to empty it. That was back in 1974 and we owned it for 9 years.  It should work as long as you buy the holding tank deodorizer. If you get the septic tank additive it probably will not. To what purpose? That does nothing for your toilet and those products do not claim to. It will waste money and may cause the thing to stop working properly. I do not understand why you don't want to just follow the directions for the toilet you are buying? Bleach will kill the natural bacteria and damage any septic system that you empty your cassette into. It will not prevent odor, much of which comes from what you are putting into the toilet. The additives that are designed for use in those cassette toilets do work, if you follow the directions. Laundry products will not. We used ours for 9 years with no significant odor problems but we also used what the manufacturer recommended. If you start adding other things you will likely have problems and there will be no factory support because you didn't follow directions.
