Are you are talking about vac-flush toilets?

Had that system on our boat (out of necessity), but glad I do not have one inthe MH. Simpler gravity flush is soooo much better. Don't have to worry about toilet flush valve seals leaking and keeping the vac pump running constantly.

Agreed that macerator toilets have worked well for a long time. Previous boat had that type.

On the vac-flush head, we had several occasions where the "solids" would easily plug the vac-flush system, and when the black tank and vacuum pump is about 15 feet away from the toilet, unpluggig a 3" dia hose snaked thru the bowels of a boat or RV can be challenging. Especially challenging to my gag reflex....

Is this a case of the RV having a bath and a half, and only one of them sits over the black tank?

We have the vacuum flush toilet in our Pace Arrow. It has only plugged up twice and used a plummer helper to correct the problem. It doesn't take much water to operate, in fact the less water the better. Ours makes so much noise with the vacuum pump is pumping that everyone knows when the toilet is used. This past winter my unit froze up and the pump housing cracked, before I knew it there was s%$# all over the crawl space of my unit. If I had my rathers I would get the gravity toilet.
