We have a ceramic toilet, but I am pretty sure there is a slide type flush mechanism on it.

Not seeing how a boat is worse than an RV. I've got both, insurance is higher on RV, gas usage is higher on the RV, initial cost is higher with the RV, daily use cost is higher on the RV (CG fees/food/etc). Someone "splain" this to me please. Don't say all the repairs to boats, as there are tons and tons of threads of repairs being done to RV's of all types.

Sorry about the accusation that boats are inherently more expensive than RV's.

Pure, unadulterated, stereotyping on my part.

The fact that we boondock on land we are going to put a house on, using a trailer, makes our RV'ing costs comparatively low.

When I had sail boats and motorized boats, the costs seemed higher because I did not use it as much as the rv.

Every time I look over at a marina, it is full of boats that do not get used. They seem more like status symbols or as they say, "A hole in the water...."

My boat was relatively cheap to operate, and A LOT less expensive than my trailer up front. So in my experience, I'd say the boat was cheaper, and I was most definitely in the "cheap seats" in the boating crowd. Between shooting sports, RVing, and now racing, I'd say I'm full up on expensive hobbies. Of them all, racing stands to be the most expensive. Someone else owns the car (my brother), but helmet, fire proof racing suit, fire proof shoes, fire proof gloves, costs add up quickly. And when you pay $200 just to get on the track, before fuel and all the rest, it can rack up quickly!!

Sorry to propagate the off-topic discussion.

Man, talk about a thread getting off topic! I just read the first post.

BTW, I looked in mine and don't see any "peas".

Holy Cow I'm doomed then. I own a Tri-tune boat and a Pinnacle.
My toilet with the ball valve most times holds water, but my toilet in my old Eagle with the slide valve never let me down.

Pea trap, P-trap or Pee trap; homonyms and spell check. The bane of the English language.
