... no, it's really not difficult to cut this foam with the electric carving knife. I just did it 2 weeks ago. if you use the old pads as a pattern/template and mark it neatly you really get an exact cut!

... I had the same problem (though in the front cabin, we sleep there).

I bought 2 really good mattresses (in German that means 7-zone cold foam) 17cm thick and used the old ones as templates. Then I cut the new ones out with an electric carving knife. That worked really well.

The next problem is that the new mattress is 17 cm thick and the cover for the old one is 10 cm. A friend who is good at sewing then cut open the covers all around and sewed in a 7cm strip. Everything fits and the sleeping comfort is extremely good.

Holger, I don't have anything to add beyond what others have stated but just noticed that your hull # is right after mine!  We're basically family!  :D

 @Andy:  I'll say hello to RUNAWAY from #1218 when I go to Italy in 3 weeks. After all, 30 years ago they stood next to each other in a California hall.  :thumb:

Ron, I searched these and couldn't find it :(

Another question:
as Noah wrote, his hose from the toilet hand pump to the toilet bowl goes up through a hole behind the panel (behind the toilet, look my Pic number one) and back through the opening to the toilet bowl via an anti-siphon valve.
That's how it is with me too (although I haven't been able to see exactly how it is behind the wall.
I've looked at a lot of pictures of other C34's and for most of them this connection is just a short piece of hose from the toilet pump to the toilet bowl, i.e. without this anti-siphon valve behind the panel. Otherwise everything seems the same in the pictures.
Why do I (we) need this?

.. a few years ago I spoke to an old diesel mechanic from East Germany who has been working on these simple, old diesel engines all his life. He said that the new synthetic oils are not so good for these old engines and recommended that I use plain mineral oils. I use Valvoline All Fleet 15W-40.

... thanks a lot you all!

another question:

 there is a shower suction pump. I have it installed under the sink in the toilet.
A hose goes to this from the shower tray (floor).
From this pump a hose goes to the hull culvert. In my case, it is the same outlet from which the flushing water for the toilet is sucked. So 2 hoses on a hull culvert (I think it's a bit stupid, but what the heck)

Now, when the seacock is open, some water always pushes up out of the shower drain hole in the floor. (My PO just put a cork in the hole, but that's not supposed to be my solution in the long run).

My question: is there a non-return valve installed in the shower waste water hose, and if so - where?

... lol, I know that. When I mark something as done at the top of my todo list, I always have to add two or three things at the bottom.

And something else about planning: everything I plan will end up taking 3 times as much time and 2 times as much money as planned. :)

can someone explain the hoses of the Toplette to me?

Picture WC1: the water comes from the left via a seacock under the sink next to the coolant inlet seacock. The seacock is also the waste water from the shower drain.

bottom right is the waste water through the wall to the seacock (can be switched to the holding tank, which I don't use) see also picture WC2.
The sea water goes into the pump at the top right.
Now a seawater hose goes from the pump into the hole behind in the wall and comes out again and goes to the toilet bowl. What is that hose doing behind the wall, why? And how do I get there?

When I have the seacocks of the toilet (inlet and outlet) open, some water flows up out of the drain hole in the shower floor and little by little there is too much water in the toilet bowl.

Can someone explain to me what is wrong and what I should change?

One more question: It's an old Jabsco toilet. I am considering buying a new model from Jansco. Will the mounting holes fit again so that I can simply swap out the toilet 1:1? (possibly with a modified hose routing?)

EDIT: I can not connect the pictures with the post, biu I hope, i have explained the problem

I should have secured it better (additionally with a short piece of line). I will probably always do this with my new Rocna in the future. :)
