    Non rv toilet

    Iím think of installing a kohler karing intelligent one-piece toilet. Other then the water usage going up a lot and possible leaking from driving, is there any reason it wonít work? My rv is parked and will probably be parked for years.

    It sounds like your unit is being treaded as a park model. If so, then no reason it wouldn't work just like at home...

    Are you planning to keep the trailer permently in one spot or tow it? If you plan to tow it, how are you planning to keep the water in the trap from sloshing around and wetting the floor when in motion? I'd also be concerned that black tank odors may escapewhen traveling as well? If you don't plan on towing a lot and you can get it mount properly, I don't see an issue.

    Unless you remove the black tank and run the sewer straight out, you'll still have to keep the black tank closed until full, open, flush, and start with some fresh water in the tank again if you want to avoid a system blocked with solid waste. If the Kohler toilet uses more water per flush, draining and rinsing will happen more often.

    I'm wondering if a macerating toilet would be a better choice. Am just thinking out loud, but would that allow him to connect the black tank to a sewer line and keep the tank valve open? It would also not be an issue if and when he tows the trailer.

    A macerator just "blenderizes" the solid waste to make it small enough for pumps and smaller hoses. It's my opinion that the solids would still settle before draining from the tank and create a problem. What keeps tanks functional is having enough liquid-to-solid ratio and being full enough when drained for the liquids to carry the solids out with them.
