A. VacuFlush® Sanitation System
The 378 has the VacuFlush® sanitation system as a
standard feature. The system eliminates the unpleas-
ant sulfide odors which plague saltwater systems. Flush
water is no longer drawn through the through hull fit-

proper knowledge of the system. Damage to the
water system can occur.
The VacuFlush® toilet operates in a different way from
other marine toilets. VacuFlush® system uses a small
amount of water (a little more than a pint) per flush in
addition to a simple vacuum. The toilet is connected to
a fresh water system. Fresh water is the key to an
odor free bathroom compartment. VacuFlush® toilets
are equipped with an integrated vacuum breaker which
prevents the possible contamination of the potable/fresh
water supply. See Figures J4 & J5 and refer to the
drawings at the end of this section. Also, refer to the
manufacturers literature includedin the owner’s packet.
See Section J-1 for general water system information and
instructions on filling the water tank. The water tank will
not be filled while connected to shore water.

The transom shower is standard on the Four Winns 378
Vista™ model. The shower unit is located on the star-
board side of the transom near, inside the shore power
tub. Refer to Figure J3 and to the locator drawing at the
back of this manual.
The water supply system can be used for showering or
washing down the transom. As long as there is water
pressure, the shower faucet will operate. A transom
shower mixer, below the transom shower handle, allows
one to select the temperature of the water.
Fresh water tank capacity is limited. Connect the boat to
shore water before using large amounts of water as re-
quired when washing down the boat.
