Maybe, but, you're less likely to stomp on it.

.For some of us bending is an issue. That makes the foot flush easier. As for the frig -- I would have liked to try going with a smaller frig, but Terry was firm that we needed the larger one and he was right. We're not supposed to stuff the frig -- we're supposed to leave air around the food, so that means we need more space. And it was really nice to pack the freezer full of meat and fish.

Will be all along the bottom of BC, but not much camping until I get the trailer. I always enjoy camping with others.

Bending versus balancing on one foot, both become harder as one ages. I think I have better pressure and control with my hand versus standing on one foot and using my other foot, which may have shoes on, to control the downward pressure. Just my .02$ worth. Ever notice how many foot pedals are broken in public restrooms, a lot more than the hand units.

Jim, I'm scratching my head on this one. I don't have any recall of ever coming across a foot pedal toilet in a public restroom?? I lived in Philly and Pittsburgh for a number of years and didn't run across any there, so don't think it's a PA thing.
In AZ most all of our toilets are modern and flush themselves with the lil sensor thingie, so none I have ever seen out here.
Just curious where one sees one of these things??

We had them on the thunder jugs in the military and have seen them in rest areas across the country, mainly older 1960's- 1970's models.

I have a lever flush and would have liked the foot flush. Holding the valve open with one hand while sticking the black tank flush wand in with the other and also controlling the water flow is a challenge.

Not for me and my 17.
I also put Saran Wrap across the toilet, under the seat, with an X cut in the middle for the wand. That way I don't get a facial.
