Can You Replace an RV Toilet With a Regular Toilet?

Ah, the big question: Can you replace an RV toilet with a regular toilet?

The short answer is no as there are 2 reasons behind this: the water usage and the flushing mechanism.

If you have a typical home toilet, your water use would be reduced anywhere from 2 gallons to 5 gallons per flush. However, your RV toilet uses much less water. Furthermore, the flushing water will go directly into a tank that you need to empty yourself.
