Most of these types of Porta potty's are self contained, meaning you empty them and not a waste tank on your boat. So you have two choices. One is to leave it disconnected and when full, empty the holding tank on the Porta potty. Or two, connect all this , which nobody knows how and use the waste tank and water tank. If you have a sink with faucet and water pump that might be nice to have. Again maybe some simple plumbing is all that is needed. Maybe a call to your broker to the previous owner for some plumbing insight.

I'm assuming that there are matching ports on the potty for those hoses. The smaller being fresh water supply and the larger being the waste line.

Can you take some pictures of the backside of the potty?

You may want to consider installing a regular head but I guess it depends on how much use you think it will get.

One more thing have you verified there is a fresh water tank and a holding tank? The PO may have ran these hoses directly from the deck fittings to the end in your picture.

Here's a link to your Thetford portapotti. - Portable Toilets | Products | Thetford Corporation

Looking at your picture, I doubt very much that it's meant to be connected to fresh water or able to be plumbed to another holding tank.

I do have a sink with nozzle attached and transom shower also with nozzle and hose.

I am positive there is all the provision for the hook-up, just need to know how to sccess all that down below.

I don't really see any access "hatch" where I can enter below to hook things up or even just to see if everything is there for hook-up.

It looks like they might hook to porta poti. Big one is probably for pump out and smaller one is the vent. So you don't have to remove tank to empty it.

It's a porta potti... not meant to be pumped out. You have to carry it ashore and dump it. The 'tank' is the bottom of the porta potti and only hold about 3 gallons.

When I bought my 2300 sc in 2001 it had all the fittings sitting in the tank. previous owner never used and I never used it.

Yes - that's probably dead on correct. That model he took the picture of is not one of those that has the connections I don't believe. Those models are usually quite a bit taller.

Switch to something else if it bothers you.
