anyone use these heads?

Electric Marine Large Deluxe Toilet Head 12V for Boats RV Five Oceans | eBay

i want to replace my heads, the ones i have now are the pump kind, and leak, and the seat is too small for my big butt.
does anyone own one of these types?
it looks like a good price... and has a china bowl... and a house sized seat.

any input?

Re: anyone use these heads?

I've never heard of them.
I would stick with one of the more well know brands like Jabsco or Raritan.
They both make electric toilets with house size bowls and seats. Parts and service are easily available.
The Raritan Elegance toilet has been getting very good reviews and would be my choice for an electric toilet. If you've got plenty of fresh water aboard, the fresh flush option is very nice and avoids at least one source of odor.

i see you sell a compact, do you carry full size as well?
PS it was hard to locate even the compact, had to do a search

Do you mean the Jabsco 37010-0090? I only stock that one with the compact bowl. I bought about fifty of those at a special price and there were no large bowls available.

Re: anyone use these heads?

Hi Scoobert,
Looks like a badged TMC. We bought a TMC in Piraeus (Athens) last year, now it needs attention and the only spares we can get here is the conversion kit at over 140€! Tried the UK but can't seem to find any bits. We emailed TMC USA and did get a quick reply. They suggested contacting Taiwan for a dealer list...no response yet. I can order from the US but why should we pay duty and higher postage? At least with Jabsco parts are usually available everywhere.
