We also have the Aria II in our coach (which was obviously an after-market installation). We had to replace the motor and seals not too long after we purchased the coach because the flush shaft (a long teflon gear) broke and you can't just purchase the gear. We like the convenience of the electric fluxh toilet and it is taller than most standard foot flush RV toilets - which my wife LOVES. It can also be set to do a standard RV volume flush or a "household" volume flush. If not dry camping, we keep it set to the household volume flush to make sure everything flows into the tank properly. Do keep the toilet closing valve area lubricated with silicone or WD40 to keep it pliable and noise free.

Mike,

You have obviously never been in a coach that has a Sealand Magnum Opus toilet. They are as close to a normal home style toilet you will find for RV's.

Try one, you may like it. However, I think the Magnum opus toilets are now extinct which leaves the Sealand Concerto as the next best choice.

I took out the thrashing machine Aria II toilet back in March of 2010 after having to replace the seal/motor combo unit three times in 6 years of service. I don't miss the noisy POS for one second.

A little OT - but I have the Tecma - and of course the reason is that the rear bath needs the swoosh / thrashing machine to deliver the goods to the holding tank. Assuming it would fit the space - is the Concerto a viable replacement or does it need to sit over the black tank? I know I could look it up, but hey the Dr is listening!

Steve,

The Tecma Toilet is a macerator unit needed for the rear bathroom because of the distance for the crap to travel forward to the black tank.

Tecma // Home

The Sealand Concerto has two different units, one that just dumps for locations directly over the black tank and the other is a Vacu-flush which has more force behind the flush.

It states that the Vacuflush can travel up to 20 feet to the black tank.

Here are some links.

VacuFlush 4709 toilet with flush handle - Sealand

Both the macreator style and the Vacuflush style toilets have extra stuff to maintain which is a pain when they need fix'n. That's why I love my Magnum Opus which dumps straight into the black tank sorta airplane style.

Thanks Richard - I knew what I had with the Tecma but wasn't sure about the Concerto. Doesn't sound like the Concerto would be an ideal replacement without the thrasher (macerator) and I can't really do anything about where my tank is located. Maybe next coach. Hopefully the Tecma will hold up. Not really bothered by the sounds it makes or how it operates. And it is sufficiently not a plastic toy toilet - but it is mechanically problematic in potential issues. Seems like we use the gravity feed toilet in the half bath about half the time - so that may help extend the Tecmas life.
