Default Royalflush toilet

Has anyone seen one of these as a replacement for the Microphore?

Yep, for a new one they are very pricey and take a good bit of coach modification to boot. I'll need to add a second water pump and probably an accumulator tank if I do it. Not sure all that is worth it, but I've found a gently used pullout for a much less frighting price and was hoping someone might have some swap-out experience to share.

The leakage problem on my Microphore turned out to be a cracked shell. From the damage I found underneath it likely was busted from new. All will need to be replaced, so an engineering change isn't out of the question.

The black tank being on the wrong side and there being no downward waste exhaust discourages me from using a gravity flush toilet. At first I had thought that I'd just cut a hole and swap sides with the tanks, but when this Royalflush came along I've been rethinking. It is a really simple toilet with almost no moving parts. All it needs is water pressure.

The deal isn't done yet so I may still swap tanks and go for gravity flush. I'm not in a big hurry.

trust me when i say this,the poop does not know which tank its in.
I would combine both tanks with a balance tube,put a cheapo toilet in dropping into the tank below it and i would like it!
One dump valve,one tank.
Or,i can sell you a used air flush Microphor,i think my new LXI has one in it.
But it will not be in it for long...

No more Microphores for me. I've spent too much time trying to fix this one and I'm not interested in repeating past failures. The equalization and single dump valve idea is far more attractive.

I do have some experience with this toilet as the first owner had one installed in my BMC. I think the model I have is the NeoClassic. Holland Motorhomes in San Diego and since relocated to San Marco installed mine. I am confident it was not cheap.

Opinions/experience:
Reliable
You are correct second water pump and accumulator are required as well as a 12volt electric valve between the pump and toilet.
It can use a significant amount of water per flush but there is a way around that.

Let me know if I can answer more questions.

According to the website add it Flushes Coins, Rags, Panty Hose

From the price I can understand the coin reference. I guess if you hear your wife scream from the bathroom you need to hand her a new pair of pantyhose?
