It depends on what you need. A straight down drop or a rear discharge air unit. Be more specific.

As Mr. Jim said, knowing what your needs are will allow us to better serve you.

Here is my all-time favorite; if you are ever in Llano Texas you cannot miss it.

Thank for the the reply Jim. it is a air operator toilet that handle pressed and air open it for 8-12 sec and then closes. I think the style is called a marine head.

Wyatt, sounds like you have the Microphor LF 210. Just need to finish the job that Blue Bird started and add an air gage so you can see if you have the required 60 to 65 psi for the air-water sequencing valve to operate properly. Also the Microphor requires the proper water pressure to flush properly.

Wyatt it sounds like you don't have a straight down drop so there are several options. All seem to be good choices.

There are others out there that may be just as good, but these two have been used by Wanderlodge owners and discussed here on WOG. The straight drop units are not as pricey as the macerators, but that is what you seem to be stuck with. You can read the various threads if you go up the page to Site Search: and where it says Enhanced by Google type in macerator toilets. You will get most if not all the threads dealing with this issue.

That for the information but it seems like the part are going bad under the sink since thats where the most of the parts are. Wont close consistently which make me think something in the regular or other parts are going bad

Wyatt, as stated in the manual...

Air system:
1. Is the air turned on?
2. Is the air pressure set at a constant 60-65 PSI at the toilet?
3. Do you have any air leaks or kinks in the air system?
4. Do you have water in the air system? This usually causes irregular timing.
Drain the compressor tank and check the filter regulator and drip leg(s) for water. To check for water in Air/Water
Sequence. Valve, remove Timing Adjustment, put finger over screw opening and flush. If water is present, it will
squirt from sides of valve body. If water is detected, then the air cylinder and airlines must also be drained.

The Electronics master Switch needs to be in the ON position for the !2 Volt Thomas compressor to operate. The Thomas compressor provides regulated air pressure for the Microphor toilet as well as the slide(s) if you have a slide equipped coach.

Many folks change the Microphor to a macerator type toilet with good results.
I do like the Microphor but it does require clean, dry air and a pressure of 60 to 65 psi in order to flush properly.
