Use with either fresh water or recycled greywater.
Most common I guess would be a thetford.They have a foot pedal operation.Push half way down and water fills the bowl.All the way down it flushes with water like your regular toilet.
So for liquid waste you dont need to fill bowl,just push pedal all the way down and a valve in bottom of bowl opens to drain it,and a splash of water rinses whole bowl.That would use a cup or less.
For solid waste,fill bowl with a half way pedal push.Half way fills with water but doesnt open drain valve.Do your dooty,push pedal all the way to rinse and drain.That might take 2-3 cups.
Water must be under pressure,either with a pump or from an elevated water source.
My RV setup is a thetford toilet,a shureflo 12 volt pump,and a holding tank.When I lived in a bus it was a toilet,pump and a septic.My septic was no more than a 20 gallon sized hole in the ground with a drain pipe from toilet to it,and covered with boards and a little dirt over them.In several years use I never overfilled that little cess pool.
You could skip the pump part and just manually fill bowl and rinse it with water.
