Winnebago Sprinter RV Toilet 101

We’ve all traveled.  And when traveling, you’re bound to need to use the restroom at some point during your trip. And let’s face it, public bathrooms are sometimes, actually more often than not, less than desirable.

The good news is, when traveling by a  Sprinter Chassis RV you’ll never again need to enter an public bathroom.   It’s all right there for you in your RV.  You’ve earned the luxury of having your own private space to go.   The security of knowing this will come to a clean, safe and successful end.

The Winnebago Motorhomes built on the Sprinter Chassis: The Revel,  Boldt, Era and the View/Navion Series all have bathrooms, but that’s where the similarity ends.

Winnebago Sprinter Toilets
Winnebago Revel Toilet

The Revel was the first Winnebago RV to utilize a cassette toilet.  A cassette toilet pairs the comfort of a permanent toilet with the convenience of a portable black tank.  You can even carry a spare if you want to stay off-grid longer.

The convenience of the “mobile”  5-gallon cassette allows you to easily transport the tank to empty its contents at gas stations, campground dump stations or any other public restroom.

Simply remove the cassette from the locking side compartment, unlatch the handle and roll it to the dumping station.  Nice and easy.  No mess.

The other Winnebago Sprinter Chassis motorhome models use traditional black waste storage tanks.  They are mounted under the RV and you use a sewer hose to connect them to dump station facilities.

In the Winnebago Boldt 70BL you can store up to 24 gallons of black tank waste and the Boldt 70KL floorplan holds up to 16 gallons.  The freshwater, grey and black holding tanks in the Boldt are double insulated tanks with heating pads to ensure they don’t freeze so you can use the Boldt (including the toilet) in colder weather.

The Winnebago Era is about the same size as the Boldt but the black water storage tanks are not as large.  The Era 70A holds 8 gallons, the 70B and 70X floorplans offer 9 gallons black waste tank storage capacity.

These Class B Sprinter RVs: Winnebago Boldt, Winnebago Era and the Winnebago Revel, each have bathrooms that are wet baths.  This means the toilet is located in your shower area/room.  That also means your toilet always stays clean.   There’s even a handy sprayer to make sure of it! (Wouldn’t it be nice if your toilet at home had that?)

Winnebago Sprinter Toilets
Winnebago View 24J Toilet and Sprayer

The Winnebago View/Navion bathrooms are full sized bathrooms, with the toilet located separately from the shower as you would find in a residential house.

All Winnebago View/Navion floorplans hold an ample 41 gallons of black waste.

The View/Navion 24J and 24V offer the cool comfort of a porcelain toilet while the 24D has a composite toilet.

While we prefer you not actually “test out” the RV toilets at the dealership, it is certainly important to know what you are getting into when purchasing a Sprinter Chassis RV.  Know you’re Sprinter RV toilet options. They are much better than a public bathroom!

Top 10 Reasons to Buy a Winnebago Class B Camper Van

 

Winnebago Revel Lithium Ion Battery Use Best Practices

The Revel Class B diesel motorhome by Winnebago allows you to travel down roads others might not even try! This off-road capable camper van is built on the 4WD version of the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis with features such as a power lift platform bed that raises up to reveal a spacious gear garage, a cassette-style toilet to minimize weight, and many more innovations giving outdoor enthusiasts so many choices all while going off-road and off-grid. The Winnebago Revel is equipped with (2) 125-amp-hour Lithium ion batteries with a dedicated second alternator to charge the system to extend your off-grid use.

Revel Lithium Ad Photo

The Winnebago Revel’s 125AH Lithium Ion Batteries are the only Made in the USA battery management system. Some key features to this battery include:

  • 25% more capacity than the competition,
  • Ability to crank engines
  • Reserve Capacity = 10% Reserve
  • High and low voltage cut off
  • High and low temperature control
  • Bluetooth Connectivity and App

Listed below you will find best practices maintaining your Winnebago Revel Lithium Ion Batteries.

TURN BATTERIES ON:  The Xantrex battery switch is located above the back of the dinette on the wall. Flashing lights on the panel indicate that the batteries are charging. Depending on the state of the batteries, the lights will flash in different sequences. Rapid flashing indicates the battery is using reserve power and should be re-charged.

CHARGE BATTERY SYSTEM (Driving) – Do not turn the batteries off while vehicle is on. There is a one minute delay between starting the engine and the alternator engaging. The alternator will engage and charge the batteries when they are between 12.8v and 13.1v. The alternator stops charging once the house batteries have shown sustained voltage of 14.2v.

  • Shore power – Make sure the batteries are turned on and plug in to shore power to charge using the 30amp connection on the outside of the coach.
  • Solar – With the batteries on, ensure the solar disconnect switch is turned to the on position. This switch is located between the Xantrex battery switch and the Zamp solar controller on the wall behind the dinette. The 215w Zamp solar panel is a trickle charger to help keep batteries topped off.

DOWNLOAD THE LITHIONICS APP

Search in the App Store or Google Play store “Lithionics Battery Monitor” and download the free app. The batteries can be monitored through the app after being connected via Bluetooth.

INVERTER/CHARGER

The inverter disconnect switch must be turned on to allow the batteries to be charged through shore power. Generally, this switch should remain in the “on” position at all times. The disconnect switch is located on the rear most panel on the driver side in the back of the coach near the floor. To activate the inverter or to use the outlets or A/C, turn the inverter on at the panel located above the solar controller on the wall behind the dinette.

LOW POWER

When the batteries shut down due to low charge, they can be turned back on in “reserve” to operate the coach but should be recharged before they shut down again. Reserve is the last 10% of the batteries’ capacity. Running through the reserve power to shut down again is abusive to the batteries.

COLD WEATHER USE

  • Turning off – If the coach is going to be stored in cold weather, it’s best to have the system charged 50% or more.
  • Temperature of batteries – The batteries are equipped with heating blankets to warm them in cold temperatures. There’s a switch in the battery compartment to turn them on and off. Use this switch to control battery temperatures when in cold weather. The blankets are thermostatically controlled when on. The blankets start heating when the temperature sensor is 35°F and will turn off when it reaches 45°F. Below 0°F, batteries will not charge or discharge. Plug into shore power. Warm the batteries up manually (space heater, park in a heated building, etc). When the batteries warm above 0°F, the heating blankets will take over warming the batteries. Between 0 and 32°F the coach can be operated on battery power, but batteries will not take a charge. Use the heating blankets to warm the batteries above 32°F to resume charging.

Winnebago’s Class B Diesel Lineup

 

 

Winnebago Revel OCCC, GVWR, GCWR and More

The Winnebago Revel showcases boundless freedom. Built on the Mercedes-Benz® Sprinter chassis the Revel combines function-fueled design, powered by the reliability of a 3-liter turbo diesel engine and the freedom of on-demand 4WD. The Winnebago Revel performance means going off-road is never off the table.

The Revel’s dependable diesel-powered VS30 Mercedes Benz Sprinter Chassis allows you to stay in control, even when off-grid. The Winnebago Revel allows you to stay off-grid longer and more comfortably with two 125-amp hour LiFePO batteries you can monitor via Bluetooth.®   And the new Hydronic Heating System provides comfortable, quiet heating, controlled by a user-friendly LED touchscreen panel.

Once you have your Winnebago Revel, it’s time to get ready to pack for your first adventure. Before you do so, it is important to know the following weight ratings to ensure you do not “overfill” your new Revel.

Revel OCCC

Unloaded Vehicle Weight Rating – This the weight of the Revel with only a full tank of diesel fuel. This rating may vary based on optional content. It will be approximately 7,294 lbs.

Occupant and Cargo Carrying Capacity (OCCC) -This is the total weight of all cargo which includes all of your gear, you, and the freshwater tanks full. This is approximately 1,756 on the Winnebago Revel.

The unloaded vehicle weight rating + the occupant and cargo carrying capacity = the Revels’ gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR). 9,050 lbs. 

Gross Combined Weight Rating (GCWR) – This is the absolute maximum weight of the  Winnebago Revel + any trailer or vehicle towed behind it. GCWR is the unloaded vehicle weight rating + the occupant and cargo carrying capacity+ any towed vehicles (GVWR + any towed vehicles. )13,550 lbs.

Towing Capabilities – The Revel has a factory installed 5,000 lb. tow package. However, keep in mind if your RV is fully loaded, using all of your OCCC, up to a full GVWR of 9,050 lbs. that you are still limited to the GCWR of 13,550 lbs. So, your trailer or towed vehicle should not exceed 4,500 lbs. (GCWR 13,550 – GVWR 9,050.)  

Some additional weights you may see if you were to weigh your Revel is the gross axle weight rating for the front axle and the rear axle which are 4,101 lbs. and 5,360 lbs. respectively.

We will compare the Winnebago Travato Class B Van powered with Lithium to the Winnebago Boldt with Lithium below.
