Oday 272 Head Installation

Hello all,

I just purchased an 1986 Oday 272. The head was removed by a previous owner and I am planning to reinstall a new one. I am wondering what head others have in their 272s? Was the original a "full size" or "compact" head?

Also, what is the lifespan of the holding tank? Anybody have to replace theirs due to a failure? It is a poly tank under the Vberth.

Thanks for any help!

-Andy

As far as I know, my holding tank is original and my 272 is also a 1986. My head is a standard Jabsco.

Do you have room for a composting head?

Original was very probably a compact.

Re: Oday 272 Head Installation

An inspection of the tank should reveal if it has any issues. If it looks to be in good condition with no cracks and fittings and hoses look good, I would not replace it.

I do believe I have room for a composting head but I think I am going to go traditional.

There is a tank that is there and I will have to test it to see if it is ok.
