Toilet in a slide

Any one yet to encounter a toilet as part of a slide and any associated problems? The Aria 4000 has one and I have concerns. Itís also a maceator and wondered about maintenance issues with those.

Thanks - Rob

That would be a FUN ride...

But I don't see how it would work. How do you hook a moving firing point; to a fixed target?

If I had to guess, it would be that they place a macerator pump under toilet, and then use a flex connector (hose) to discharge down to a fixed-location black tank.

I think Chance got it right, the macerator under the toilet connects to the black tank via a flexible line. Seems like that may be a receipt for problems over time.

Check to see if the black tank is also in the slide. They may be using the pump to empty the tank and no place for an emergency slinky connection.

Any appliance in a slide will have "flexible" lines, ie: electrical/propane/water/gray water and now...... sewer???? Got a mental picture of what could happen when leaks occur......not only no .....but Oh hell no
