Rogue scat machine issue

Recently finished a great Rogue trip, did the usual scat machine toilet cleanout of our ammo-can toilet, w/ plastic insert. Took 4 cycles of the scat machine, but finished with a clean toilet. Only problem, the 6-inch screw top for the toilet went awol during cleaning. We had put this screw-top in the front little basket where smaller items go for cleaning, as stated in the directions at the front of the scat machine. Gone, down the drain line, or plugged it up.

Called the forest service office in Gold Beach. The ranger there they said they'd contact the new resident manager at Foster Bar takeout to ask about retrieving the lid if possible. They apparently service the scat machine every so often. Not a fun task, no doubt!

So just posting this as cautionary tale. Best not to put the toilet screw lid, or any other loose items, in the clean out basket in front of where the toilet gets strapped, despite what the directions state. Our toilet insert is the old style--not the Eco model.

The screw top has male threaded screws, with 2 slots at the top for screwing/unscrewing. If anyone has an extra one of those little gems in your mishmash of old raft parts paraphernalia, please PM me. Will happily purchase it and pay shipping. Otherwise we're buying a new sleeve.

Last trip we were down there a couple of weeks ago that piece of shit didn't even turn on to rinse our turd bucket out. Pissed me off royally just because of all the trouble loading the gear up on the machine only for it to fail. Big line waiting behind me seemed pretty bummed too, like they knew they needed to burp tanks while going over bear camp rd. or risk explosion!
