Hi there,

I know your posts were several years ago but this is exactly what I was hoping to do. We full-time and are currently in Colorado, last winter were in Missouri. Frozen tanks are not fun but a necessary evil of not being able to head south. I think the Nature's Head would be excellent as we could just leave the gray tank open and not worry about dumping the black. I would like to combine the black and gray tanks into two gray tanks and divert the urine to them as you suggested. Did you end up going ahead with this installation and do you have any of the pics that were sent to you from Nature's Head?

Thanks!
Tiffany

Frozen tanks are not a necessary evil if you winterize properly. There have been threads on winterizing and still being Able to use the trailer. Composting toilets may work but the gray tanks will have to be winterized as well as the fresh water system.

good info here for sure..

now for another question on the install..

I was seeing where someone was asking about piping the urine into the gray or black tank and was wondering if that was a good or bad thing.. seem dulation would take care of any issues with that.

On my 2005 classic there is no vent pipe to tap into so I was wondering if it was possible to vent into the sink drain line up high just under the bowl, and also diverting the urine there as well.. would that need a p trap(get it "Pee" trap) or would the existing p trap be fine.

thought??

so to follow up a bit it now time to get the natures head installed.

This weekend after dewinterizing the unit, I removed or tried to remove the old RV toilet. right off the bat the nuts on the bolts holding the unit to floor flange were a bit@h with LOT of corrosion.. after spraying with some rust buster product and holding screw with pliers it still wouldn't budge.

Had to get chisel and bust the bottom of toilet to get it off.. not a big deal but was hoping to clean up and sell the old part.

so next i unscrew the screws on floor flange and unscrew the floor flange.

My plan is to get a 3" screw on cap, put a piece of 3/4" plywood on floor on top of cap, cut slot in plywood and figure out how to get hose on liquid part of NH and route into cap through hole I drill and seal so liquid goes into black tank, which can now be combined with gray tank to increase capacity.

there is a clean out past the elbow in gray line from sink to tank. I got a 1 1/2" barb, screwed in the the fitting and was going to fit the vent hose on this. see picture.

still working on project and will get more pictures.
