I have been looking into an incinerator toilet made by Incinolet.  Their Model RV is made specifically for an RV and runs on 120vAC.  This would totally eliminate the need for a black tank and the mess associated with dumping, cleaning etc.  The toilet is not cheap (approx $1500), but I think the cost savings of no black tank & no plumbing to/from toilet, the space savings of no black tank plus not having to dump & maintain a black tank would offset the cost of the toilet in the long run.  They seem to be popular in the marine world.  Also good for basements and cabins where installing plumbing would be very expensive.  Here is their url...

Any feedback is appreciated.

Darrin,
I thought about the Incinolet, but since I can't afford one and have a regular RV setup already, I passed on it.

Hey there,

I worked with a guy a couple of years ago that installed one in a small camper.  For what it's worth, he loved it.  It solved the problem of a black water tank in a camper that he could not have one installed.  Of course, you'd be compelled to admit that you loved it after spending $1500 on one!

Be sure to run down odor and electricity consumption for these units; I have seen complaints about these issues in the past.

For what it's worth.

David,

How is your bus electrical system set up (genset, inverter, etc.) since the Incinolet requires power to burn the waste?  How many amps does the Incinolet pull during a cycle?  Can you operate it via the inverter or is it too much drain on the batteries?  I know with shore power & genset the electrical load will not be an issue, but curious if the draw on the batteries is significant?

Thanks for everyones responses!  Smiley

Website says 1800 watts, 15 amps, 120 volts. Guess overall draw on batteries depends on how often you poop/pee.  Wink Wink Cheesy

Even if this thing works perfect, No odor, easy cleanup.  $1500.00

100 gallon premade tank $300.00

Toilet $200.00

Misc fitiings and connections $100.00

You still need a gray tank so you have to go to a dump anyway!

Is it worth $900.00

And lets say your taking a leak and an electrical malfunction happens Shocked
