Eeeeewww. That might work too, but... a plumber's test ball is a rubber balloon fastened to a threaded plastic plug. It is screwed into the cleanout tee in a building sewer and then inflated so it plugs up the pipe. The sewer system can then be filled to the top with CLEAN water to test it for leaks before running.. dirty.. water through.

It would stay. Didn't your travel trailer have a conventional RV toilet with a flush valve at the bottom? So long as the seals are good on that valve there's no worry about things sloshing out. Jolly Roger proposed using a residential toilet instead, and that's where the business with the built-in P trap started.

The travel trailer was a very long time ago. Mostly I remember soft floors, hitting my elbows all the time while in the shower and that it was a towing nightmare.

They make the test balls for cheaper without the thread hassle and you need a bycicle pump for it at minimum and no matter what kind of toilet you install you are going to have to deal with the crap that is put in it. at least in my camper I know what I feed them is what comes out of the other side and my wife keeps trying the vegan thing but I need meat and beer. And of course my kids don't get beer and they don't agree with the vegan thing either but either way even a veggie diet is a stinkie problem?
I have salvaged 95% of what I have and my tank style toilet is from a demolition job where my men were throwing 3-400 away so my idea is ways to make what I have work.

Me too. I was thinking of putting a porcelain toilet in my outhouse because I have the parts, and no my outhouse is not connected to my bus but that's a good idea. Nobody likes an outhouse with a hole underneath. I'm actually wanting a tub more than a toilet.

Out in the country when your septic plugs up, due to roots or specific meals that caused blockage, it is sometimes necessary to have an outhouse.
