Nope. It took me about half an hour because I thoroughly cleaned everything.

Heck even I was able to do it and it took longer to look at the instuctions that came with the seal than to do it almost.

I had a place that did and only charged for actual time it cost about $50 because I already had the seal. It was worth it!

I'll tell you my story which may help. When I bought my '99 2 years ago the seal started leaking. So I took everything off just to inspect and clean. The ball had some heavy scratches in it and it was original, so I replaced that too. Then I noticed a small drop of water on the shaft of the water valve, but nothing on the floor. Since I knew this was original too, I replaced that too. So for $100 I got a whole lot of peace of mind and a new toilet. Oh, if your Traveler model didn't come with a hand sprayer, I highly reccomend adding one of those, very handy!

Our MH has a Sealand toilet. I replaced the flush valve and vacuum breaker. While I had the toilet out I checked the seal and ball. They looked good, so all I did was clean both of them. The toilet bowl will hold water well over a week without loosing any of it.

I agree on the spray hose. Great for cleaning the toilet and sometimes helping empty the bowl of solids. They're fairly inexpensive, you just need a new vacuum breaker with the extra outlet to attach the hose.
