Share raw water intake for 2 electric toilets?

Is it feasible to share one thru hull for the raw water intake of two jabasco electric toilets? It's a temporary arrangement until my next haul out when I am going to add an extra thru hull. I want to am reallocate one of the existing two toilet thru hulls to provide raw water for a new small air con.

Thanks

Island Packet connected both my heads to the engine strainer, it worked that way for 28 years until I converted to fresh water flush.
I don't see any reason why heads need their own dedicated thru-hull? Maybe the fewer thru-hulls, the better?

I can't see why it wouldn't work as long as both toilets aren't being flushed at the same time. If one of 'em hogs the water, the intake impeller in the other one could be damaged by dry friction heat.

On a different note...When you move and replace the toilets, be sure that each is on its own separate dedicated circuit shared by nothing else, and with its own breaker 'cuz you don't want anything to reduce power to the motors...low voltage not only kills electric motors but is also a leading cause of sluggish discharge.
