Composting Toilet by Nature's Head Install – RV Upgrades



I show you step by step how I installed a Nature’s Head composting toilet in our RV. This was an excellent upgrade allowing us to combine our black and gray tanks into one giant gray tank.

A composting toilet seems like the perfect compliment for our RV dry camping / boondocking setup. Since we now have no need for a black tank, it allows us to combine our gray and black tanks to make one gigantic gray tank. The composting toilet also uses now water so the water in our fresh water tank will last longer. These both allow us to stay on site longer since we won’t have to dump our holding tanks or fill our fresh water tank as often. We also won’t have to deal with the sewage or chemical treatments that go along with having a black tank. A composting toilet for us is a win-win-win!

    If the electricity for the fan runs through living space… why not put the fuse in living space. Water and road salt will eat at outside fuses

    Is there an issue with connecting the urine tank into the RV's grey water tanks? From what I have seen in many cases urine has been used as fertilizer in gardens, that aside I am assuming you are dumping the grey water at a waste station anyway…

    Have you guys thought about converting to an extra fresh waster tank instead of gray water ?

    Just bought one to install in my work trailer so that we’ll have it on job sites. Thank you so much for taking the time to do this. You are a gentleman and a scholar.

    Hey David,

    First of all, thanks for the walkthrough! We're putting our Nature's Head in in a week from now and are super grateful to see a familiar face on a video we desperately needed!

    Also, I wanted to say that as a beginning YouTuber, it's super encouraging to see how far you guys as well as your production value have come in the last couple years. Keep doing your thing, and we hope to see you out there someday!

    Just bought one of these today from an Ebay seller. Your video gave me some idea what I will run into when installing mine. Very helpful!

    What did you use to cap off the water line? Do you check it to make sure it doesn’t leak or drip?

    We've used a Nature's Head composting toilet for many years. Never had a single day of toilet sewage smell. No problems whatsoever. We use peat moss instead of the coconut material. It required zero work, unlike the coconut bricks. We add zero moisture to the composting medium, so we don't ever have problems with stuff growing in the composting bin. When we empty the bin, we do not do a lot of cleaning of the remaining residue, because that is already home to the bacteria that is needed to get the composting process started again.

    Ok i dont understand why you would want a doublesized grey water tank. I get doubling fresh water tank but your grey water? You cant use that for cooking or drinking so why double that?

    I hope you see this!

    Next weekend we are removing our RV toilet and putting in a composting toilet.
    My question is the 2 screws that hold the toilet in place how did you remove those?

    Well at least you added a fuse that's what I was saying the whole video. Fuses should be installed as close to the battery as possible that way any chafing on The Wire that might cause it too short to metal which is usually grounded to the negative the battery will cause the fuse to trip preventing the long-run of wire from going up in flames. I know this the hard way thankfully it was just something small. The fuse is there to protect both the wire from damaging anything else and shut it off or to protect if you draw more than the wire is capable of supplying. It's also a good idea to do it that way as if the fuse were to ever blow you would have to trace down all the wire until you found it.
    I'm assuming it gets wet under the RV so I think I did see a non water-resistant electrical box down there and tape can only go so far.

    Watching the youth of today (you), to include most adults under the age of 70, hack through the mechanicals, is not only hilarious (LOL!), but also quite sad..

    So you basically disonnected a lovely flush toilet for an indoor 'outhouse'.

    Great base you made for your Nature's Head! I find in the case of a Nature's Head it's helpful to have an extra liquids bottle that way you have one ready in case you find yourself with a full bottle in the middle of the night. https://bit.ly/2W7J8K6

    I hope you fixed that water leak under the sink, seen it dripping when you were drilling the hole inside the cabinet.

    I realise this video was quite awhile ago, but do you have a video of connecting your waste tanks together to make one tank?

    couldn't you just use a hole saw to drill out the flange?

    I'm very surprised they can't come up with a way to mount that to a regular toilet flange…
    I would call that a fail on the manufacture.

    Dude, that was awesome. Great job! Would that toilet work in a T@b 320 that has a wet bath, where the shower and toilet are enclosed together? Or do you think it might cause issues getting wet when showering? Thanks!

    Great install video! Do you by chance have a video of how you plumbed together the black and gray tanks in order to make them both gray tanks?
