Although the Sun-Mar Mobile uses Sun-Mar's tried and true three-chamber system, "marinizing" the unit led to some interesting adaptations. The need to be able to handle violent motion meant that the finishing drawer had to be gasketed so that no liquid could escape from the evaporating chamber. The air intakes face the same problem. These have to be located higher up and the air ducted down to the evaporating chamber. At the same time, a special drum locker ensures that the composting drum is held upright under all sea or road conditions. Space constraints mean that a fold-away foot rest is needed on the unit. This footrest has spring loaded legs, and a safety release mechanism to enable it to be removed periodically when access to the finishing drawer is required. To assist installation, strong mounting brackets are mounted at the base and rear of the unit. Electrically, the Sun-Mar Mobile units are quite different from other units because of the unique situation on many boats and RV's. A 4.0 Watt 12 Volt fan is installed in a fan box within the vent stack. This fan, (which is on its own circuit) is designed to operate continuously while the unit is in use. To assist the 12 Volt fan in providing adequate venting, the Sun-Mar Mobile is unique among Sun-Mar units in having a 3 in vent stack. Customers need to supply their own deck vents, which should be constructed to allow adequate air movement while preventing seawater from entering the unit.
