Where is fuse for thetford toilet cassette

This is quite difficult and fiddly. The fuse unit is situated above where the cassette gets inserted. Remove the cassette and at the top front left hand side you will see the wiring in the cavity. This will give you access to the fuse unit and reed switch. I am assuming the toilet won't flush. If this is the problem then the answer is above. If the problem is the light will not illuminate when full then it is the reed switch that needs replacing or by passing. Hope this helps.

How to choose the right knife for your camping trip

depending on what your plans are for the uses of your knife you will first want to pick either a folding knife which are smaller and can be put in your pocket easy to carry then you have nonfolding knifes that have sheifs which need to be on a belt or put in a backpack pocket there bigger then a folding knife and thicker blade then a folding knife a non folding knife are mostly more stable then folding knives you dont have to worry about the blade folding down on you fingers but most folding knifes have a blade lock just remember when choosing your knife make sure its comfortable to use and not to big bigger is not always better and dont forget a good sharping stone when camping your knife is your life

I dropped my NEBO Slyde+ flashlight onto a hard surface. The light went off. Is worth trying to repair?

Self repair can be dangerous, as the capacitor packs quite a charge. For safety, I would find a replacement.

Replace light bulb in Eveready lantern

1 Answer. If it is the yellow floating lantern you have to remove the black plastic stub on the underside of the reflector using needlenose pliers to wiggle and slightly pull until it releases and the bulb will come out. This worked great! Eveready should have this as one of their FAQs.Jan. 6, 2011

Needing to know how to set tent up it has metal poles I think it's a 6 or 10 man tent could be a 8 man not sure

They seem to make a few models. There are videos and text articles, but the best thing is to lay out the tent base, make up the poles and work it out. Peg the 4 corners of the tent, then it depends on the type of tent, but ridge pole in next, then the apex poles at the end, and then lift up on the legs. The peg in all the guy ropes and tighten. https://www.google.com/search?q=academy+broadway+tent+instructions ..
