Moving the head

89 Bounder 33W with aft bathroom. Would like to move the toilet into the closet/wardrobe area. Crawled under the coach expecting to find the blackwater tank located beneath the head. Instead, just saw a bunch of second floor paneling covering everything up. There are only two tanks visable. One is the fuel tank and I would expect the other to be the blackwater tank, as it is below all floorboards and would be impossible to heat.

My question is how to access the plumbing below the head and how much flexibility will I find when I do. The head is currently mounted next to the rear wall of the coach and centered in the room underneath the very small rear window. I wish to relocate it about three fee forward and three feet towards the passenger side of the window.

Any thoughts or experience with this kind of thing appreciated. I hate to go ripping up floor not knowing what is to be found beneath!

Thanks in advance.

I would say the first thing to do, is to find where the black tank is before doing anything. You won't have to move the black tank, but will have to have a way to get it plumbed, and I'm not so sure I'd want to do that. I have experience as a technician on RV's for almost 10 years.

Then if you do find it, and can move it, you have to close the open hole where it was. Honestly, I think you're opening up a can of worms for future problems.

Good luck

Moving the Head

Why don't you just get a Nature Head Composting Toilet? I checked out all the info on it on the interweb and will replace mine to.

Composting toilet

Hopefully in the next week or so, health and energy allowing I will post some info and pictures on installing a Separett Composting toilet from Sustainable solutions who also sell the Natures Head.
The Separett is a bit bigger but looks nicer (in my opinion). It can however be a little harder to install.
They are Also called WATERLESS Toilets and thats where the big advantage lies! NO Water use, NO Smell And No More Black Tank!!! Ever! AWESOME.

Thanks for the composter ideas, but for now, I am just figuring how much work I will have to do to move the existing head a few feet and hope someone will jump in here that has experience with the plumbing for the head.

You might call Fleetwood Customer Service ( 800-322-8216) and see if they have the plumbing schematics for your coach. I don't know how long they retain the build sheets, but they are very responsive to requests for plumbing and electrical drawings. You will need to provide the FIN (Fleetwood ID Number) of your coach, and they are closed on weekends. Good luck to you.
