Aria 2 replacement RV toilet

Looking for a replacement toilet for our Essex. Current toilet is an Aria 2 and hoping not to have a change mounting studs.

You might check out the Dometic 310. According to them, Dometic, the 310 is a direct bolt up to your existing flange (Aria 2). Their number is 800-321-9886 FREE. It has 2 bolts at 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock. The high (18") model looks right.

Only possible complication is that Newmar uses two lag bolts to bolt the Aria 2 to the wood structure below. It does not bolt to the flange in my 2007 Newmar Mountain Aire 4528. Thinking your Essex might be the same.

I rebuild my Aria 2 a couple of years ago and so far so good. Let us know if you change yours out so I and others could replace our noisy ones.

Good Luck!

The problem is that the Aria I in my MADP is mounted with the lag bolts, which is good as there is no flex. But the bad part is the tile on the floor is cut out so this can be done. I'm not sure the 310 will cover the tile cuts. The Aria is 15" across at that point.

Also my floor flange isn't so good so to use it would require replacing it as well. I'm in the rebuild process. Bought all of the working electrical part through Amazon for about 1/2 of the Thetford wants at list. Got a new switch, both elect solenoids and both Vac Breakers all new in original plastic bags for less than $120 with free shipping through Amazon. My slide and motor work fine. What I am thinking of adding to this toilet is a spray wash down like a sink sprayer to facilitate cleaning the bowl at times. This was improved on the later Aria II by having the entry water come into the bowl like a home toilet around the upper rims instead of at the rear and forced out by deflection. I don't think this will be hard to do just a bit of plumbing.
