trillium toilet help

the toilet in my 79 Trillium 4500 has issues. the siphon pump to draw water to the bowl from my fresh water tank leaks & does not draw, the valve to let the waste from the bowl to the small holding tank leaks & finally the valve to contain the holding tank waste leaks. Rebuild / Replace
I can't even find out who made this.
Thanks Bobby

Don't recognize the potty, but that may be because my head won't rotate on my neck enough to actually see the picture.

Kidding aside:

You're talking about a bunch of blown seals, and I've been there with my O.E. 4500 potty. Fahgeddabout replacing the seals...cost you as much as a new unit, especially once you consider the nasty factor involved with replacing some of those puppies.

A hundred bucks or so will get you a new Thetford 135, which is the closest thing to what you have, size-wise. It will fit in the cubby, and that's what counts.

wow quick reply, I would gladly buy another toilet that has a outside standard discharge valve so I wont have to carry the 2 gallon porti potty tank & empty it. One of the reasons I chose my trailer was the bathroom option.

I don't know the Trillium setup; maybe a regular marine head would work for you? This is a manual pumpout/discharge:

Thetford Aquamate 365 MSD Marine Head

I'm interested in the bathroom option your Trillium has, Bobby- I see what looks like vent pipe in the pic- what's that for? Also, does it have a shower, and if so, does the toilet have to come out of the "room" while showering?

I ask because that marine toilet looks like a good option if you have the room for a permanent install and want the "standard discharge" you mentioned earlier.

the pipe is abs painted white & vents the holding tank part of the toilet. the toilet, unlike a portable, has a permanent discharge directly under the tank which has a 3" connecter for hooking to a campground system or to a roll around tank one could empty if no direct hookup is available. the holding tank under the toilet holds about 10 gallons.

No shower yet, but my plumbing contractor buddies want to invent one.

O-o-o-o-o-h...

I think I'm starting to get the picture. Threw me off when you mentioned "emptying the two-gallon tank" on the porta potty. I thought you were talking about the toilet in the pic, but that's wrong, right?

Am I correct in now assuming that the one in the pic is a permanent install and you're just using the PP 'cause this one leaks?

I see a label in the picture- anything useful there, identification-wise? Even just a part number or something?

the toilet in my 4500 is not a portable. at this point I am dissembling the thing to buy rebuild parts. so far i have identified the discharge valve as a thetford valve available online
I have found threads about the 727 toilet, but no results

so at this point, not being able to rebuild the stock toilet, I removed it & ordered a new thetford portable
