Bathroom Waterproof switch


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know a source for the bathroom waterproof switch.  There are 2 switches; the pump switch and the light switch under the cabinet.   I was thinking about putting in a switch to turn the composting toilet fan on/off.

I just had another thought.  Is the switch in the bathroom for the pump really necessary?  It seems redundant with the pump switch on the SeaLevel II Tank Monitor.  I could just use the present pump switch in the bathroom for a Compost fan switch.

Not until you are buck naked, standing in the shower, and, realize that you forgot to turn the water pump on.😊

The original Elites, like our 2008, don't have a pump switch in the bathroom. It has never bothered me, as it's one step in our small trailer to reach the switch by the SeeLevel. 

A few original owners added a switch in the bath, and Oliver adopted the idea. (Pretty sure Scubarx and dckiefer added the switches early on.)

You should able to find a similar weatherresistant switch and boot at NAPA, but if it were me, I'd spend a few dollars more and buy a weatherproof labeled blower rocker switch at a marine supply. I'd be less likely to accidentally turn off the fan.

Do the new Olivers still have the little low light that illuminates the floor? If so, I'd borrow that circuit instead. We never use that light, and you'd still be able to run the blower if you turned off the main pump switch, as we do every time we leave the trailer.

The switches themselves are the same as used elsewhere in the trailer and are not waterproof.  An optional splash-proof boot is used on the bath switches.

On my 2018, Oliver used ZF/Cherry RR and SR series switches , part numbers: RRA32H3FBBNN (DPST for light) and SRJ23A3BBBNN (SPDT for water pump 3-way). The optional boot is p/n 00150751. For later model trailers, I'd recommend pulling one of the more accessible switches by the door and verifying mfg and numbers.

It might be easiest to just source them from Oliver but Digikey stocks them I believe.

I just unplug the Nature's Head fan connector cord. Why mess around with a switch.

Go camping instead.

When & why do you guys turn off the Nature's Head fan? Thx

I'll unplug it when we put the trailer in storage.  After emptying and cleaning the toilet of course.

It would be pretty easy to add an inline switch on the cord, which I guess would make it slightly easier to turn off.  I'm like you though, why bother if you can just pull the plug.
