Take look under your TM. There is no black tank, and no place to put one. However, a number of our members have removed the Thetford toilet and installed a SeaLand M-28 in its place. Lots of info here on the forum. Use the Search tool.

Default Dometic 711-M28 toilet

I replaced our Thetford with a Dometic 711-M28 toilet, purchased from Marine Sanitation. They spun welded a 3 outlet flange to the bottom of the tank before they shipped it to us.

This toilet has:
- a porcelain bowl (easier to keep clean),
- a 6 gal tank,
- a good seal on the 3 ball valve (foot operated flush valve),
- uses about 1 qt/flush, and
- is vented out through the side wall. (No toilet odor buidup like we had with the Thetford).

We (2) get about 3 days use on this tank which is about the same as the grey water tank. Had to rework the hole in the floor about an inch and rework the drains pipes from both the toilet and grey tank. I was able to reuse all the drain valves. There was a good write up with pictures in the forum that I followed. The only addition us that I Used plastic 1x2 trim from Lowes to space it up to work with the wheel well.

Very happy with the change.

I am about to build a 13G fiberglass black water tank that will sit on the bathroom floor. I will mount a low-boy toilet on top of the box and it will utilize the discharge plumbing already in place .

A lot of people find working with fiberglass intimidating so I will take lots of pictures and post them on here. If you ever made anything out of paper-mache' when you were a kid, you can make anything out of fiberglass. It really isn't hard and actually kind of fun.

I've built a number of fiberglass boats in my day and I did a LOT of major F/G repairs on my 45' yacht.
