We have hull #3 and it is called a 2007. Not sure about the original heads, but I suspect the Jabsco in the forward head was a replacement. It suffered from hose kink that ultimately leaked and created an ugly few hours. The full porcelain design means you can't access the mechanisms without removing the head from the base. It looks nice, but is completely unserviceable. Form follows function for me. The Raritan design leaves everything out there to be serviced and works perfectly. Of course, it's brand new now...

I don't know that our Y valve is stuck, but it wouldn't surprise me. It is physically locked as that is the requirement here in on the US side of the Great Lakes. It is locked so that the pump out branch of the valve is open, and that all works fine. The macerator motor turned when we surveyed it, but it has not been tested under fire, so to speak.
