RV toilet- No holding tank Harry 8-8-03  
I am fixing up a 1970 Star type J Winnebago. It has a Monomatic toilet in it, that I have no clue how to work it, but needs to be removed due to major repairs needing to be done in the bathroom. I do not see a Black water holding tank on this trailer, so the toilet must be self-containing, but there is a drain pipe outside under it. Anyone know anything about this toilet, or what would be a good replacement that does not need a storage tank?
Thank you.

I had a 1970 Winnebago F-17 motor home. It had only one holding tank. Toilet, shower, sink -- all drained into one tank. Then I had a 1973 Superior 20-ft motor home. Same situation. I don't know when the manufacturers started putting in separate tanks for black and gray water but it was after 1973. mdb.

I just bought an 1971 17 foot scamper trailer, very nice little unit, but, it has a monomatic toilet. Very difficult to find info on this toilet. The lever at the bottom front should be left pushed in then 4 gallons of water dumped, I found while dumping the water in hit the flush button, this will get the action going, then add the chemical. Mine has a blackwater holding tank, this system works when used properly.

I just bought a 1968 Franklin RV that has monomatic toilet and I have to honestly say I don't know what to do with it. I don't know how it works or what kind of chemicals you use in it. Any information would be helpful and much appreciated.
thank, Dawn

You are correct on all counts. This toilet is a self contained unit that is simply dumped as you would a black water tank and then recharged with fresh water and the appropriate amount of chemicals. The ones I've worked on have a trim ring around the base which when exposed will allow access to the retaining screws that hold it in place. If you know of anyone who has a spare working monomatic, I am looking for one.

I have a monomatic in my 1971 Prowler
I was thinking of taking it out and replacing with somthing along the lines of another self contanied unit, but one that uses fresh water to rinse the bowl, not a recirculating one. In the 1/2 dozen times we have camped using it, it can really start to smell even after only using it for "#1's" I use the "T-5" chemical as recomended, but the odor is really bad only after a dozen uses. Herb is you want it We could work something out, maybe just shipping cost and its yours. I'm in The Houston Texas area. Thanks, Ed
