ELKHART, Ind. – Dometic will be showcasing the new Moderno toilet and HandWave Control Panel at RVIA, Nov. 27-30.
The new Dometic Moderno toilet comes fully equipped with VariFlush technology. A first in the industry, VariFlush technology allows a single bowl to accommodate multiple flushing technologies including VacuFlush, MasterFlush, RushFlush and Gravity.
The Moderno toilet is an all-ceramic bowl that is elongated and tall to provide the luxurious comfort and feel of a residential toilet. It also has smooth-contour modern styling that simplifies cleaning and improves hygiene. In addition, it has a slow close seat with silent performance.
The Toilet Control Panel, used in conjunction with the Moderno toilet, has HandWave motion sense technology and capacitive touch display that offers a fresh approach to lavatory use. The HandWave technology allows users to flush the toilet without touching the display.
There are intuitive icons on the Control Panel that allow users to add water, flush or service. These icons provide easy operation without language barriers. Each of the icons has backlighting to enhance low light visibility.
The Toilet Control Panel is backward compatible. RVers who want to upgrade to the Moderno toilet can replace the existing control panel without remodeling.
Two color options are available for the Moderno toilet: white or bone. Additionally, there is an optional bidet seat available in white only. The Toilet Control Panel is available in black frame.
