I did order the optional second battery, so I hope that will handle it fine. I confess I would prefer the old fashioned type of toilet like the Sealand Traveler in my Casita, to the macerating one, but that wasn't an option.

Appreciate it. I have not seen a Parkliner yet. Where is the pump that takes the shower and sink water out? Is this a third pump? In other words, you have the water pump, then the Macerator toilet pump, then the third that takes the shower and sink water out? Thanks.

You just made me realize I need to learn more about the whole plumbing system. It's not a simple system ala the Casita.

Yes, three pumps.
1.)Flojet automatic water system pump for the fresh water
2.)Macerator pump on the Sealand toilet
3.)JABSCO shower drain and Bilge pump. This third pump must be turned on when using either the shower and bath sink. It is under the bottom corner of the bath floor. The switch is installed by the faucet. If you forget to turn it on you will stand in a pool of water when you shower and if you use the sink the water will do down the sink drain but come back up the shower drain and pool in the tub at your feet. You have turn it off when done running water --but not to worry you won't forget to because you will want to make that slurping noise stop!

Not having owned any kind of trailer before we don't even know what we don't know yet! And have no basis for comparisons-- not sure if that is for better or worse

Scamp uses a Bilge pump for the Shower Drain too.
I think it uses a flow switch though so the operation is more automatic if the pump circuit is powered already?

Hi Ed
The owner of Parkliner had a Scamp, so perhaps that is one reason for his choices. Personally after almost 4 trouble-free years with the far simpler systems in Casitas, I don't understand why anyone would design a complicated system like the Parkliner. A lot more complexity to go wrong, gotta cost more, and more difficult to winterize, with no benefits that I can see. Gravity works!!! I guess I'll learn.

See you at PineKnot?

Scamp uses a manual on/off switch to power the shower evacuation pump.
On ours,we added a bright red LED light to the bulkhead on the galley side which is wired to the switch.
This prevents overlooking the pump (which is quiet enough to do so) especially when the television, A/C, or furnace is running.

It's really designed so well and suits our little family of four quite nicely.

Happy camping!

Chandler was at a rally in PA that we attended with a demo and an employee of his delivered one there to a couple, so we got the tour of 2 of them. At that time there was no bathroom sink, anybody got any pics of the sink addition??? I'd like to see that

He said mine was the first and he would be making the mold from it to offer it as an option for 2013. If so, those would probably look even more streamlined I am thinking.

As I said, he offered the sink to me and that helped seal the deal. I saw yours and can't imagine mine will look any nicer. I didn't take any pictures, so I can't help there till the end of next month. But the sink really does look nice. But note, while it looks nicer than the "tacked on" sinks in the Scamp and Casita (and others), because it's recessed into the wall, it's not the kind of sink you can get your head over while teeth brushing.

We have been to the Lil Snoozy plant that is a startup company like Parkliner. Loved the Snoozy and hope they are still about when we upgrade. The Parkliner sounds interesting too. Has anyone seen both and done an apple to apple comparison, ie weight, size, amenities, price,etc? Would be enlightening to see both side by side.

Yep it's really tiny. But aesthetically so pleasing and serves its function adequately. I could use it to brush my teeth and rinse if I tucked in at an angle. Washing my face was more of a challenge. I splashed water everywhere but I'm already standing in the shower so Im ok with that. We are very pleased to have it and with the design not eating into the bath.

I think our recessed sink space is a cutout as there a lip framing the space with four rivets in the corner. (Pic in my profile album) I could see how it maybe possible in future installations to be addressed as fully part of the wall mold. I'm very happy with mine as it is and tickled that you are getting the sink option too.

Neat sink, I see Chandler still has not covered the 12v toggle switch with a rubber boot to keep the switch dry. I mentioned that to Parkliner at a rally in Tennessee, where both Lil Snoozy and they were present. Lil SNoozy is somewhat larger but Parkliner is more traditional. If they were 2' longer I may have bought one. Anyway here is a picture of the boot needed on the shower toggle to keep it dry.

Cpaharley- thanks for that pic of the toggle cover. Didn't even think of that but we should go get one to put over them both.

Sue- i saw lil snoozy online only but didnt pursue bc II was after a more traditional look. Actually wanted a vintage-y one but Mr. wasn't on board with doing reno's. maybe when the kids are grown and we have more time! Hope someone else can offer insights as the two manufacturers are relatively close.
