Vacuum toilet parts

After owning several Fleetwood products we’ve switched brands. Our last one a 2116 Bounder was a problem from day one, got the point where I would never trust it. Anyway, the reason for my post is a have listed parts for a vacuum toilet in the classified section that may save someone some money.
I am aware all brands have their lemons and will now try my luck with Tiffin.
Wish us luck😊

I never had a problem with mine. I purchased anything I thought I could need hoping to never have I trip spoiled due to the toilet. A gravity toilet has very little to go wrong. A positive, the vacuum is almost odorless. The negative, if vacuum breaks down you have no toilet. My previous Bounder had the vacuum pump in a near impossible place to get to. Besides my Bounder being a total piece of junk the toilet always made me nervous.
My last PaceArrow however was the best Motorhome I owned, I hope our new Tiffin is as good as our Pace was. The newer Fleetwood products in my opinion are a conglomeration of very good parts and appliances put together my morons how could care less, their customer service has the same attitude. Sorry to get sidetracked but our Bounder was the worst. Your Pace hopefully will not be as poorly manufactured as our Bounder. Not to be self serving but carry some spare parts. If you can get to your vacuum pump it looks fairly easy to service it diy.
I wouldn’t not buy a Motorhome due to a vacuum toilet, I would pass on one that had the pump under the floor in a unserviceable location.
Hope you enjoy your Pace Arrow.
Ken

KenJr, what year was your Bounder? I just traded (8/1) a bullet proof 99 PaceArrow for this 09. hope I didn't make a mistake. considering my age/health this probably will be my last motor home and I just wanted a PaceArrow with more slides/space. bad news for me, my 3lb Yorkie couldn't get near the vacuum pump. are your parts still for sale?

It was a 2015, I wouldn’t let anyone’s opinion affect the way you feel about your new coach. I just had a REALLY bad one and it wrecked my opinion of all Fleetwood products. I hope and I’d bet you will have better luck. Enjoy it!
