Re: Converting a Crown

We have purchased a macerating toilet. We also have put our two waste tanks in front of the rear axle on the passenger side of the bus. We also have purchased a macerating pump so that any waste can be easily pumped out of our Crown. We are planning our FMCC (Fecal Matter Control Center) on the driver's side of the bus near the battery area. There is plenty of room for tanks under the bus. They just can't be massive beasts. We have a total of 80 gallons of waste tanks under the bus. That should be plenty for most people. We are using part of the rear trunk space in our Crown for the fresh water tank.

FMCC (Fecal Matter Control Center), I like.

I'm trying out a composting toilet first. If that does not work I will use the same FMCC you have. I hope the composting toilet works, because I only have to dump it about every 1.5 - 2 monthes. There are more and more parks putting in compostion areas to use to dump.

Re: Converting a Crown

Well I purchased a Crown thats a pusher so it will be much easier for placing tanks but more I think about it I like the idea of the macerating toilet anyway,be easier to place the bathroom across from the shower area & give more room for the living area

Re: Converting a Crown

I've been poopin' in a bucket, and it works great!

I built a wood box with a toilet seat on it and a hole under which lives a 5gal bucket with a plastic bag liner. I use kitty litter to cover up and absorb. I use 2-3 cups of kitty litter each time. The beauty of this is that the bus lives in my driveway most of the time, and it is not practical to connect it to my house septic system. I don't want to have to drive somewhere to empty waste tanks. If I don't use it very often, I can go weeks without changing the bag, and it doesn't stink at all so long as I keep everything covered with the kitty litter. Then when it's time to change the bag, I just tie it up and plunk it in my garbage can on garbage pickup day. Just like emptying the litter box. Meow.

The only problem I've encountered is on trips with the whole family. The kids sometimes do not cover well enough, and then it stinks, and Dad gets pissed. I think I will get a cassette style portable toilet for camping trips, so this way I can easily swap toilets depending on the need.
