Default 2400SCR Head

I bought a 2000 2400 scr near the end of the season last year. I was able to take it out a few times but didn't get around to getting much work done on it before I put it in heated storage for the winter. I am getting ready to get it out for the summer and one of the first things I need to fix is the head.

The toilet is leading and is generally just a bit disgusting so I am planning on just replacing it. When I went to order a new one, they have both Compact and Regular size bowls. Does anyone by chance know what size toilet fits? Anything I should be aware of when replacing the toilet?

Always appreciate everyone's help here! I am expecting to have more questions once my boat is in the water.

Also, I am in Michigan, anything I should be aware of getting the boat going this spring? The marina took care of maintenance in the fall and has been in heated storage so just wondering if you have any best practice advice?

You should have the standard size toilet. Iím assuming itís a manual one, do you plan to replace it with another manual one?

Yes, I just have the manual Jabsco. No issues with the toilet type, figured it was easiest to just replace with the exact same toilet. Any reason to consider something else?

Easiest to replace with the same model.

On the Jabsco manual pump the base is the same on both models. The difference is the size of the bowl bolted onto the base. You should be able to fit the standard bowl in there.

As for electric vs manual, you'll need to make sure you have enough room for the pump, which sits to the side of the base. Typically the discharge on an electric is 1" while the manual pump and vacuflush are 1.5". I'm assume you could use the 1.5" for the electric.

I have a 1995 2400 SCR with the original porcelain pump toilet. It works great just like the day it was new. I have never used but my guests report It eliminates majour feces with extreme relish....

If I had a small holding tank, I wouldn't go with an electric flush. It flushes too much water with every flush. When I had a manual pump, we loved it for a lot of reasons.

1) You could 'dry flush' fluids, so no need to use so much water. Particularly helpful when we're drinking beer.

2) Any time we leave the boat overnight, as well as when we go to bed, we use the faucet from the sink to fill the bowl with freshwater. (heat and/or time and salt water starts to smell very badly).

3) Less draw on the batteries when we're anchored or on a mooring (we leave the dock for weeks at a time. Last year, aside from 2 short runs back to the marina ducking hurricanes, we were out 10.5 weeks last summer).


I replaced my Jabsco electric flush with a Raritan electric flush. It allows to dry flush and uses freshwater for regular flushes. This reduces odor and impact on the holding tank. However, we have 2 x 60 gallon water tanks. I wouldn't use a freshwater flush on a boat with a 13 gallon holding and 20-30 gallon freshwater tank.

Personally, I'd stick with the manual flush. Just one guys opinion.

You could look into vacu-flush as well but itís a much more involved project. Iíve had both electric and vacu flush and can confirm electric uses a lot more water. The vacu flush on my 2900 was fairly conservative with water usage. We had a 30 gallon freshwater and 16 gallon holding tank. The holding tank would last the weekend for 3 people but not much longer.

They are great when they work. No smell, efficient, quiet and easy to use. But Ö they can be temperamental as vacuum leaks can be difficult to diagnose. Also you will need space to add the vacuum pump near the holding tank.
