OK, I'll keep it going. Louvered vents. Directional diffusers. Aim 'em where you want it air flow thing-a-ma-jigs.

I want to go for a 320 low profile if I can find it with a reasonable price.

The kiddo's explained to me once that the gold fish died and they took care of it. They said they gave him a "Swirlie". Took a few before I realized what they meant.

I didn't see the advantage of the 320 over the 310 series for the price difference. I can still add a sprayer at any time without changing out the toilet valve.

I am larger than the average bear. I understand the 320 has an elongated bowl. I have a 300 now, and I hate having to fit myself in so to speak.

The 100lb wife does not get this...

Installed another shut off valve so I can run my two grey tanks together for more usable capacity.

You are 100% correct the 310 is a round old fashion bowl and not to everyones liking with that said it is just like what is in my house. Go with the 320 series they are both a serious upgrade from the plastic.

Cleaned the filter on the a/c and looked at the ducting to see what all the hubbub was about. Putzed around inside putting some stuff away from last weekend.

Yours is the "Ceramic" or what ever it is made out of. I do wonder about the higher height versions putting too much stress on the two bolts and the floor during travel.

Both 310 and 320 of either height, bring more weight to the game and this is something that holds me back...

What are your observations/thoughts?

I went to the higher elongated bowl (not sure what model ) but I like it a lot better than the lower round bowl, I don't drag on the rim any more.

My big question is about how well the mounting works with the existing floor bolts. I just do not want to create a a problem by changing.

Yes, Yes, It is a drag.

Think the bolt deal is very close....went from a Thetford {?} brand to a Domedic with no problem

the 300 is very light and the 310/320 are some what heaver (about in the range of a half a case of beer) however I like putting my hind end on a real toilet seat and not hear the squeaking of the plastic seat I can't change. If weight it that close stick with the 300 series. I don't think with the flange having 8 bolts and the toilet having 2 brass bolts and being tight to the floor there will be any real stress.

Turbs, The gray tank mod is one I've thinking about. Do you have details about what you did?

I flipped between Wal-Mart and Home Depot and finally settling on this one from Amazon.
Thanks!

Not Turbs, but this is what I did to my 08 and my present 12. I hooked all 3 tanks together, black and 2 grays. Separate valves to empty each one separately or open the 2 grays to fill both at the same time. Has worked great for 8 years.
