29" waist?  Heck my thighs are that big (could wear a pair on each leg).  I have the Sealand traveler 510 that uses a standard household seat.  I believe that's as big as it comes.  Good Luck, TomC

So which toilet has an optional "bushing" so I don't have to make one out of a piece of pine?  Grin Grin Grin It will also have to fit my girlfriend.
  By the way, I have a requirement for my girl friend: She has to fit the "gauge".  Roll Eyes Grin My friends ALL know the "gauge". ( make two fists in front of you, fingers down about 6" apart. Stick your thumbs out toward each other and touch them together. Stick both pinky fingers straight out in front of you so what you have is a "goal post" looking configuration laying horizontal. Her butt has to fit inbetween the pinky's!!!!!!!!!!!!   Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy!!!!!!!  LOLOLOLOL
  Or, she just has to be able to get into my jeans. LOLOLOLOL












Truth! )




  Can you believe THIS post makes me a "Hero"!?!?!?!?!?!?  LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL
  Oh man, I'm crackin up here!!!! LOLOLOLOL

   Time for lunch and some composure!!!

Chaz-that's a little girl!  Guess I like mine more robust.  I'm afraid if my gal was that small, I'd squish her-I'm 6'3" and 305lb.  Good Luck, TomC

TOMC,
You can still use the same gauge, you just have to stand back farther when you use it!

After suffering for 6 years with "RV & Marine " sized toilets I couldn't take the abuse any more.

Thetford Aria all the way now and it is GREAT... No more plastic bowl and midget sized seats. No more leaky pedals and valves to worry about and no more worrying that the water will keep running because of some pedal problem.

It's big enough to actually FALL OFF of, Not FALL UP to the floor.
Your knees no longer hit your chin and hips don't creak anymore when you try to get up. Oh.. That numbness caused by a bad seat is now a thing of the past...

Sorry,

Dave....

Not to hijack, but what's a decent toilet that takes regular seats (they fit my butt just fine  Wink ), works well, and is reasonably priced? 

It appears the Sealand 500 plus takes a regular household seat, but you'll want to confirm with Dometic.

Do you have the Aria Deluxe with electric flush or the classic with foot pedal?

It appears the Deluxe with electric flush has some issues with the water running continually if the circuit board blows.  The Aria Deluxe seems to have more complaints with overflowing and flushing issues than most of the non-electric toilets.  Maybe the Aria Deluxe II fixes these issues.

My plan right now is to order the Thetford Aria Classic unless someone has a good reason not to.  Yes, I know it is pricey and more than the $250 I planned, but it should last a long time.

I have the Aria full electronic one, Probably the deluxe, It's never given me a seconds trouble, I give it good water pressure and clean filtered 12 volt power.

Have almost 2 years use already and it gets used about 20 times a day. I did switch it to water saver mode recently due to a water shortage but otherwise I usually keep it in house mode which is fully automatic and uses a little more water. When I bought it wholesale it cost over $500 or maybe $600 and if I had to do it again I would buy the same product.
 The solid china unit is so much easier to keep clean. I am happy to see the plastic toilets go away, They are such a pain to maintain.

As a rule ( mine! ) I always filter the 12 volts to mission critical appliances and make sure that if using a converter that it has full-wave filtering and is set to the proper voltage.

90% of the problems with RV electronics is directly related to dirty or bad d.c. power, I have never had a ciruit board go out since I started using 2-way radio filters in the 12 volt circuits to critical things.

More later....

Dave,
  Can you give us more information on these?  Do you install this in line to each component you want to protect?  Jack

What about the Magnum Opus?  Is this a good reliable unit?

Jake's RV Surplus has these for $300.  I would prefer a non-electric toilet, but the Thetford Aria Classic is $100 more and I need to cut back now that I found I need a new radiator core for big bucks.

Spend the $ now or spend it later! Buy what ya need/want now you'll be $ ahead, than to replace it later! Besides if I had your $ I'd use mine to start a fire!

Jack,

There are a number of d.c. line filters. The most common ones are used for altenator noise filtering. They have a capacitor and usually an inductor inside that smooths out the chirps and chatters on a d.c. bus ( removes ripples and spikes ).

2-way radio systems use them in line to eliminate emi noise on the d.c. line to the radio. Now days car stereo systems use them to get rid of interference and balance out power fluctuations.

In buses the NJT transits and most others that ran revenue service with radios may have them in or near the old radio boxes and they are usually a small metal box with a red wire going in one end and out the other on a stud.

Look around at radio shops or any place that does high powered car stereos. They will have a supply of them or know where to get the best deal.
