Default Vaccuflush power switch

I have a 2001 2700 SCR purchased about a year ago. Having trouble location the 12v power supply switch for the Vaccuflush toilet. Any hints as to where it is located?

All the ones I've seen are in the head. I assume you're trying to turn it off, not on?

My 2004 2500SE does not have a power switch. When you turn on the battery switch it primes automatically.

Are you not getting power to it?

I think mine is direct wired as well, can't find a power supply switch anywhere. Trying to turn it off when we are not on the boat for a while. Other boaters on the dock think it should be turned off when not in use. Could use the battery switch but that would disable the security system. Will try the 12 v DC breaker panel, surely they hooked it up thru one of the extra breakers. Thanks for the help.

If you have a DC breaker panel for the vacu-flush that would be the solution. If not, you would need to install a shut-off switch. Shutting off the main DC battery switch does not sound like a great idea to me. My bilge pumps are through the main battery switch.

Yes. just go to your panel and their should be a breaker for vacuum flush. Make sure the breaker is on, then your toilet should be good to go

A vac flush uses fresh water so you freshwater tank must have water in it and the pump on, the switch is at the helm. There is a vac pump at the holding tank but I am not sure where it gets power from.

Check the fuse in the engine compartment. 20-25 amp, big red. Easy way to disconnect.

I have a 2001 2900 SCR, I don't have a on/off switch for my vaccuflush toilet. I was kicking around the idea to add one, there is a switch in the head that is not being used.

My 2009 2500se does not have a breaker or switch. When they winterize it, they unplug a 2 wire connector behind the pump. In my case, the pump continued to run, so until I have the bellows replaced, I put a ground side switch in to allow me to charge the tank, and cut the pump off so it does not burn out. Hope it helps.
