Compost toilet

Has anyone converted their 364 to use compost toilets instead of traditional? It seems easier than dealing with sewage Is this true or is it a nightmare? Any feedback would be appreciated....

Gone With The Wynns have a pretty good video on composting toilets for RVs. Here is the YouTube link

This has been discussed on a number of occasions, do a search on compost and you'll have plenty to read.

Think I will stick with the regular toilet that came with the MH. Using the stinky slinky is not that bad.

I installed a Nature's Head some time ago and now sit and wonder why I waited so long. Sure beats getting out in the freezing cold or blistering heat of summer to empty the black tank and messing with the stinking slinky. Took me about 2 1/2 hours to install and remove original toilet. Some can do it faster as I am several years past my "use by" date and can't get down and up as I once could. We use coconut coir as a medium and have had no problems with odor. Just keep the urine separate from the solids and you will be good to go.

Which begs the question, what do you do with the urine, or do you pee in a different pot? Just how does that work?

Id like to know as well.. Most information leaves out the nitty gritty details.

Tell us how it works ! Down to the last drop !

You have to dump the urine somewhere. There is a youtube video showing the separate urine vessel, which she dumped in the fire pit. Also one has to open the toilet to get the vessel out, with all the poop solids to look at. I imagine the technology might have changed, but I can't see how this is any better than handling a black water tank.
