Has anyone installed a riser under a toilet. The previous owners of my coach had one installed and I would like to remove it. I removed the toilet and the screws holding the riser down but it won't come up. Any suggestions.

I never installed one but I/we have rebuilt and remodeled our old RV. Sometimes people seal the riser/toilet to the floor with silicon or something else. See if you can get a thin putty knife between the riser and the floor.... If so work it around the bottom slightly prying up very carefully. If there are hidden screws you'll find them too.

Good luck

Jerry,

Are you sure that you have removed the nuts on the closet bolts that hold the riser down and not just the screws that may be for a riser cover?

Check the black bag to see if they left the paperwork on the riser in there for you. It would give you a better idea of what you are dealing with.

What problem are you having with the riser. It usually gives a low RV toilet a traditional or comfort height that more closely matches those found in a home.

Got it done. It was just stuck. Found that the pipe is glued to the flange but the pipe only slides into a receptical on top of the tank. Just had to put a little force on it. The flange bolts are on top of the riser in the flange. No way to get to the flange without removing the toilet first.

Great! Your home free...
I'm not a silicon caulker especially around the bottom rim. If there is a water leak I like to see it and repair it before it rots out the flooring. If some need to seal the bottom I would just seal the four corners only. That way if there is a leak it will flow out where there isn't caulking. Just food for thought..
