Our own B has aisle shower and outside shower wand- we use the campground shower or if remote, the outdoor shower.
Our RV toilet only sees liquids- even paper goes in a bin.
I tour with rock bands on buses- the #1 rule is no #2.
This way you avoid tough clean outs and chemical experiments under neath. We essentially run chemical free, odor free.
( sickness requires a double bag method for the solids- the "bag of shame")
On the road we use the arena showers- with flip flops I have avoided and foot fungus or warts in over 35 years on the road- no kidding, I have showered more times in hockey arenas than I have in my own home.
a few tour buses have showers in them, we usually use this space to stack cases of beer. to fire up the water heater and the weight of extra water is a pain.
We find this a comfy way to travel.
