Toilet pedal
« on: November 07, 2017, 02:16:27 PM »
The left petal on my toilet broke.....(The one that opens the flush valve..)

How involved is it to replace that petal?

That would depend on the make and model of your toilet.
I would like to apologize to anyone I have not yet offended. Please be patient and I will get to you shortly.

All I know at this time is it's a Thretford (?) toilet....I don't know the model #

If this helps it has two floor petals...One that lets water in and the other that opens the valve to dump the contents...

It's that petal that broke...(dump contents petal)

Disregard my previous post.....

I decided replacing the toilet was a better option....

I'll do that instead of replacing a pedal.....

Good plan, we're on toilet #3 (I think it's a Dometic 310 series) - hopefully this one will last a while.

That is the very best idea you could have. Repairing RV toilets is a crappy job. I have replaced two of my toilets so far.

John

What went wrong with your Dometic 310 series toilets?  I am on my 3rd 300 series in two years.  Mine leaked at the seam on the pedestal and were replaced by Dometic at no charge.  On the new one I taped off the seam and applied three coats of RTV sealant before installing the toilet.  So far so good....

I replaced the plastic "toy" toilet in our previous RV with a Thetford Aqua Magic Style Plus (with Water Saver sprayer) porcelain bowl toilet in 2008. When we bought our current RV in 2013 that had another plastic toilet, I swapped the Style Plus with it. The only "repair" its had with full time use is a replacement bowl flush gasket, about a 20 minute job. I also used a new base gasket when installing it in our current RV of course. We really like the easy clean porcelain bowl and the standard residential seat.

Replace it.  You gotta take the old out anyway.  New is inexpensive and new.
