Re: Best Manual Head?

Phil, Wilcox-Crittenden is long out of business. The toilets were bought and produced by Thetford for a while. I think parts can still be found for some of the Wilcox toilets. The Skipper was their top of the line head.

Just changed all the seals on our 25 yo Groco K. Don't think the seals had been changed before. The process gave me a real appreciation for fine engineering of the unit.
