I apologize for the harshness and condesention, but it was tongue in cheek. I really want to evaluate this idea, and was hoping to find some input somewhere but havn't much yet, except in some of the sailing forums.

But just think of it...

NO black tank, no water usage, more grey capacity, no (or little) smell. I wonder if the hype on these links matches the experience, but I guess we will have to wait and keep trying to keep the dreaded poop mountain at bay.

Again, sorry if some got offended, it was not my intention. I am frequently among the plug er in as soon as possible sector of the RV club as I assume most of us are. I am taking steps to equip myself for more "off the grid" activities, but the full service campgrounds are hard to beat. I am at least set up to do the occasional National park site and Walmart overnight.

And in both videos they say you have to keep "number one" totally separate from "number two". I'm scratching my head on how that's possible, especially for females.

How the heck are you supposed to teach young kids how to manage this filthy monster.

Yeah, wish I'd kept my word...this time I really *am* OUT....

carry on...while I go puke.

I'd give up RVing before I'd resort to this!
In all fairness to the Nature's Head, the lady in that YOUTUBE didn't even know to hook up the fan to the unit, which is necessary for an aerobic system. I find the black water dance that we do equally disgusting, if more familiar. Rubber gloves, leaky cheap sewer hoses, all manner of chemical concoctions etc. What can be more disgusting than empting our black tanks. Really? Seriously...

I just couldn't help but be curious. I was reading up on them long ago, and came across lots of info. I don't think I'd put one in a motorhome, but then again we don't dry camp or boondock, ever. I'd probably consider one in a camp, a cargo trailer conversion or something like that.

Duh uhhhh the urine comes out the front of both anatomy's. You just have to sit down, something I recommend for everyone in my RV (and at home), especially if you have to clean the bathroom once in awhile.

This type of response is why progress is SO hard to make. LOL

Just Saying.

When I read it, it came across to me just as you intended it. No problem. Beyond that, I like the idea of discussing new ideas on this forum, even if they are not for everyone.

I think it's obvious you're not female. #1 is not projected forward on females. (and I don't even like posting such information...evidently it's necessary on this thread)

The woman who dumped the urine jug did it at her own place.....a cabin somewhere very rural.

I prefer to think of myself as having progressed higher up the sanitary chain than this. NO one has covered how you empty that disgusting tank of poop and whatever it is you put in there with it. And just where the heck you dispose of the "poop stew".

Not once have we had to encounter anything unpleasant at the dump station. Gloves, good quality stinky slinky, alcohol gell and/or wipes are mandatory, and maintaining the tanks religiously is a MUST. Sure, I'm aware that it'll happen eventually, but that beats dealing with what is essentially an out-house bucket in my RV every stinkin' day.

For the third and last time....I'm OUT. This thread goes on my mental ignore list. (wish I could find my green faced puke smiley and wishing I'd not even responded to this thread)

Just for sake of completeness, I invite anyone interested to read up on composting human waste. One it is composted for awhile, it can be disposed of like any other garbage. The composting toilets have been in use for a very long time, and some of the more recent designs use the separation concept which minimizes the ickkyness of the product (which apparently comes from combining the poop with the urine).

Only recently has someone begun to design small enough units to work in boats and RV's

Interesting idea, both in the technology and in the reaction it elicits.

I might save up some pennies (lots of) and buy the C-Head unit which is the cheapest and uses 5 gallon containers and gallon milk jugs. Seems kinda elegant, in a way.

Ok, I think that's enough speculation, and it appears that other than Knutter nobody has tried one so it up for grabs, so to speak. Gone with the Wynns sure seem to be likeing it tho.

Curious. The negative comments all seem to come from those with no personal experience. I've watched the Wynn's videos several times and I have no reason to think they are disgusting or misleading. I would love to try the composting toilet in both our RV and our boat. I hate dealing with the dump stations.

I wish the manufacturers would handle the installation on the front end. it shouldn't have to be a retrofit. That's not a job I have the skills to under take.

Don't poo-poo an idea if you don't have first hand knowledge. The Wynns do. They are on their second composting toilet.

Wow, research much?

The comments on here really shock me. . . "poop stew" really? It's amazing to me that 1. people in this country know so little about composting toilets, and 2. so lazy that they can't even look up some pretty easy to find info. No, there is no "poop stew" that you have to worry about disposing of. Check out any number of composting toilet manufacturer's websites to find out how to use one. For God's sake Pete Nelson puts one in almost every tree house he builds on TreeHouse Masters on the Animal Planet network.

In a composting toilet, guess what? The waste is COMPOSTED - as in, it turns into compost - and no, you don't need to separate #1 and #2 - at least not in the brand that I own and have placed in my pool house. (Sun Mar - Composting Toilets By Sun-Mar - The Environmental Solution ) Let me tell you, if I could get one to fit in my teeny tiny RV bathroom, I'd have one, but they are quite large. Black Tanks and Dump stations are what's disgusting, not composting toilets. You put in saw dust and a microbe packet at the beginning of the season and take compost out at the end of the season - not that hard, really. It's no different than the bags of compost you buy at the home improvement store.
