Open the panel and there are breakers and a series of fuses. None of which are marked - like a new breaker panel in your house.

No problem that you posted about this Pharmgeek It was a suspected clog in the line. Yes keep a plunger with you at all times!! Plus gloves and bleach!! Good thing we were visiting family at the time and had access to one. The loaner was a regular household plunger. I guess you could saw the handle down if you want a smaller size. Definitely use lots of water while flushing.

If the macerator motor dies or freezes up, I guess you are really up *$&# creek!! This macerator toilet is probably the only thing I'm not crazy about on our FC.

I forgot one of the stated reasons...per user TavnAsh on the safari bunkhouse thread - I know IggyWalker and I were talking about why they went with it...im not sure if this is an official reason, but here is what was said:

"You have the concept, we currently run one in a boat the family owns. Basically the waste is sucked down a small hole in the head (toliet), goes through a grinding process, and is deposited to the holding tank via suction. Benefits are the waste takes less volume and gravity is no longer a requirement for transporting the waste. The first version of the Bunkhouse had an undesirable location for the blackwater tank which limited the size, and made unsightly and vunerable plumbing at the rear of the trailer. Your rig has the blackwater tank forward of the older bunkhouse.
"

I wonder what boat owners know about these things and their reliability. I have this pump thing for my dishwasher that takes discharge water and pumps it out to sewer (connection was too high for the washer alone) - and it also is a macertor type if needed I think (like some people could use if for a toilet or something?? - anyway, it has been running without a hiccup now for 7 years or so...hopefully the macerator toilet will prove reliable...I can handle the occassional plungering if needed...

Unrelated, but I am quite bummed...summer is nearing over...all my "1 week vacations" are used up and I will not take another until June 2015 (tybee island, river's end campground)....it cannot be healthy that I am already anticipating June 2015 when it is not even fall 2014 yet.

Who is the manufacturer of the macerator toilet used on the 2015 bunkhouse? As an example the LTV Unity uses the Thetford Tecma Silence Plus.

I'm in. Ordered the 2015 Bunkhouse on Monday and should have it in December. It's pretty funny to go back in this Thread and see my old posts asking questions like " The New Guy" then end up buying one of these things.

Question for owners: Have you ever come across a place you want to camp but the 30ft is too big?

Short answer for me is no

But I think there may have been once where a late reservation attempt meant I could not fit in the available slots

The six digit serial number is assigned to the dealer's build slot when he places an order. One can change "what" is built in that slot up to around 30 days before production. Once "what" is defined and set into concrete, the rest of the alphabet letters of the VIN are added in front of the serial number to define the trailer for licensing and local taxes purposes.

I have joined the club. The 2012FB is sold and I have a deposit down on a 2015 Bunk. We are very excited about it and can't wait to pick it up, hopefully late next week depending on the weather. Now I need to get the RV5000 on order and installed, new Michelins ordered and installed and we will be set for Meza, AZ over Christmas/New Years.

Are the brakes now disc? Forgot to ask.

After talking with Anderson I am going to try one of their new No-Sway No-Bounce WDH. Anyone running one on yours?

It did not look like it but anything else to consider and/or be prepared for other than the grind up toilet?

Are the tank monitors working well for you?

I truly hope this is substantially better than our last new 2012FB as it took 6 months to get all the factory problems and issues resolved.

Will post more when we get it.
