Thetford Introduces Residential-Sized RV Toilet

Ann Arbor, Michigan-based Thetford Corp. introduces the new Aqua-Magic Residence permanent RV toilet.

“We’re really excited to introduce Aqua-Magic Residence to the marketplace,” said Mike Mesharer, Thetford’s director of sales, in a news release.

“It’s a residential-sized RV toilet with contemporary style and homelike comfort, yet is still lightweight. Many RVers have requested these and the other features it provides—and Residence exceeds expectations.”

The high-profile Residence features a comfortable, ADA-compliant 18-inch seat height to make sitting down and standing up easier. The high-profile model weighs only 9.5 pounds, while the low-profile model weighs just 8.25 pounds.

Residence has a contemporary seat for optimal comfort.  Its cover is strong enough to sit on and has a convenient built-in lift slot.  Seat and cover can be easily removed for customizing.

Delivering a powerful flush, Residence provides superior bowl coverage and its ball valve wipes clean with every flush. The mechanism maximizes flush performance and eliminates potential trap issues.

Residence also provides single-pedal convenience. Users press the pedal halfway down to add water and all the way down to flush.

Mounting and connections are engineered for accessibility and quick installation.  For added strength and durability while eliminating squeaks, the bowl and base are bonded together using polymer welding technology.

In addition to high and low profiles, Aqua-Magic Residence is available in white and bone colors.
