Re: Mansfield Toilet System

I put new similar toilets from West, replumed with hard PVC, and each head is pumped to black water by separate macerator pump. Just a switch in the head to run macerator as needed.

Mine was not hooked to genny either, the charger was colored blue and only had two circuits. I have changed for a genius charger and now keeps all batteries up.

Re: F28 props

Hi Lance,

Did you get that "pirate wheel to work" for your boys.
