The Tecma easy fit line is what was installed in my 35SC. Its the eco model that they used.

It worked well, you need to keep in mind that you will need a 30A breaker and anywhere from 10AWG to 8 AWG depending on run length. With the heads, always error on the side of larger wire size. They do take some current to run, and to minimize voltage drop it will help in the long run. The next size up really is made for the 50+' yachts, as it will take some room from the head. They also go up in price accordingly. :shock:

I would much rather have an electric unit over a vacuum flush model for sure. There isn't anything special about the tank or pumps you need or have to rip apart the vacuum generator and replace the duct bills. No seals to have to worry about holding a vacuum. ;)
Thanks, Chris
