Maybe it's just me. But a toilet that doesn't work without power makes me a little nervous. I know there's always the great outdoors but when its cold and rainy outside...

on my thetford aria deluxe if the power goes out I have a dial that I turn and it will dump the solids. I suppose I would have to fill it up with water by hand to flush it again till i got power fixed. so yes I can flush no matter what happens. will see about water when i hook it up. hope that clears that ?.

I don't see a problem retrol fitting an electric tolit to an older coach. just need to hook up a 12 volt wire and ground and away ya go. heck for $75.00 instead of $500 or $700 at todays prices, i'll give it a shot. no I wouldn't put one in for that kind of price but for what I paid, not much to lose. lol.

We have the Thetford Aria Deluxe II. Its porcelan with an elongated seat ( important issue to bigger people). It has pushbutton flush with a two position switch for water saving. One position gives you one squirt of rinse water, the other gives four. Its been flawless for six years.

I didn't think you could flush them if the electrics malfunctioned, but subsequent posters state there's a manual method.

I dunno about retrofitting into a rig that didn't come with one, but I will never ever ever go back to a manual potty that opens the black tank to my world when I step on the pedal, give me a pushbutton every time.

You haven't had the BEST until you've tried the Dometic Magnum Opus or the Dometic Concerto toilets. They are both complete porcelain & electric and just as good or better than any S&B toilet you will find.

I personally own the Magnum Opus after having too many seal & motor problems with the Thetford Aria II. I will never own anything else. If I ever change coaches, which most likely will not happen, there are some things that will go with me, one is the Magnum Opus toilet.
