Toilet Question

Has anyone replaced the toilet in a Dolphin with a marine macerator toilet? Seems like it would really help - it'd grind everything up before pumping to the tank. Should make dumping much easier. Thanks for any input.

IMO if dumping your tanks is hard/difficult you are doing something wrong.

The marine environment is completely different than what you are dealing with in an RV. I would never install one of those toilets in an RV.
As was said, if you feel you have a dump problem you are doing something wrong.
If your dump configuration is unusual perhaps you should consider the Flojet macerator unit that attaches to the outlet fitting on your coach. It allows you to dump thru a garden hose at greater distance than the traditional hose. I have one and spent a winter where the dump fitting was 125 feet from my coach and it performed flawlessly!
If you describe your problem in a little more detail I am confident several of us can offer advice.

Thanks for your thoughts. I've just spent 15 years living on a boat, so I'm QUITE familiar with the marine environment! The PO said he had occasionally had a problem depending on the TP he used. A macerator toilet would obviate any problems at the source. Just thinking...

When I purchased my Tropical the black tank would not drain while on my first trip when the valve was opened . The PO had been using a macerator and 50' hose . I suspect there was a large pyramid of waste in the tank. I fixed the problem with a wand that has a rotating end and many flushes of the tank. I also rebuilt the toilet with new seals and valves, checked air vent and replaced the drain valve . All ok now

Well we had to replace ours this past summer and i thank god for the warranty we got with the purchase of our used Coach. All we had to pay was the (50.00) deductible. They couldn't get what was in there, so we got a newer version of what we had.
