Hi Roger


The main problem with WD40 is that its not designed for use on plastic

A silicone spray is a better thing to use for this

Thetford make such a spray and is usefull for all parts of the cassette toilet

Please see here, just click on the word in blue

Your local caravan spares shop will sell this or something simmilar that will work on plastic
