I have a question !!!
Why are marine toilets not used in TT ??
I would think there would be an advantage to the macerator pump since you have the holding tank, plus they work much like a home toilet.
The only thing negitive thing I can think of is high initial cost and current draw ??
I had considering installing one but I would like to know if this is a good / bad idea ??

Garry,

The thetford recirculating toilet is used in the Trailmanor line of travel trailers. I think this is what you consider a macerator. I sold my Airstream last year and bought a Trailmanor because my Ford Explorer was having trouble pulling my Tradewind. Now, I have a newer TV and may one day soon rejoin the AS ranks. Gotta gingerly approach my wife about this at the right moment though.

Scott

Thanks for the response.
At the tiime I posted the question I was unaware of the problems that were (are) far more important like rear end sag, bad axles, frig, furnace, ect,ect, ect.
Since my current toilet works I will look into a new toilet sometime in 2106 or when all else is repaired.

Lucky me, my wife picked this one out.
I was not impressed at first but like others on the fourm once started it became my baby and I would hate to part with my Airstream.
Hope you find yourself in a new (or new to you) Airstream in the near future.
