Our goal is to upgrade the toilet in our 2001 Winnebago Minnie Winnie Model 427P, so that the toilet does a significantly better job of cleaning the bowl when flushing.

 

The toilet is the original THETFORD Aqua-Magic IV.

 

We are looking for recommendations with these kinds of upgrades with real-life experiences of significant flushing improvement.

 

We would hate to spend a few hundred dollars to upgrade to a new toilet to only find that the new toilet doesn't do a better job of flushing and cleaning the bowl.

 

Your thoughts?

We have a sprayer similar to one that would be used at the kitchen sink.  Didn't work well because you had to be flushing the toilet for the sprayer to work.  Water volume too low.  Removed the sprayer from the flush valve, and added a tee to the water line to connect the sprayer.  Very good volume.  If the toilet didn't flush well, an additional spray finishes the task.

I have been doing it that way since the 70s, on 10 motorhomes, works great.

Go with a china bowl and its much easier to clean.  We sometimes spray the bowl with silicone or wax.
