Which THRONE do you prefer?

DW says a bucket is not an alternative. We are considering replacing our ceramic Aurora toilet with a similar one that has the same footprint because the seal is no longer working and repair cost is prohibitive. Any suggestions?

Our toilet bowl seal stopped working late last year, I put plastic gloves on, cleaned the seal and repositioned it and then used petroleum jelly on the seal and it has worked fine ever since.

Good luck!

We have had Sealand toilets in our last two rigs and they seem fine. Not necessarily better than Thetford, but a pretty good commode.

Our previous toilet leaked for the past two years. I had tried cleaning and replacing seals with two different types. Still leaked. Purchased from Tweetys.com a Dometic Model #310 for $156.80 including shipping. This was the lowest price I could find online or locally. The 310 has a different method of sealing, holds water very well, and flushes better than our old toilet.

If you go to this SITE
you can download a chart that shows which Thetford and Sealand toilets replace the one you have. It gives the dimensions of the various models and indicates which ones are direct replacements. Of course the water line might have to lengthened or shortened.

Why??

My Techma is great (as toilets go) It doesn't let any smell into the bus ever, heck the black water hardly smells. Water usage is programmed and minimal. Works great.

I dunno about retrofitting into a rig that didn't come with one, but I will never ever ever go back to a manual potty that opens the black tank to my world when I step on the pedal, give me a pushbutton every time.

Thanks to all the replies.
We purchased a Thetford Style Plus. Instalation was relatively simple and I did it myself. Now for the testing....

Just curious but is there some type of bypass method to flush an electric toilet if the electric buttons don't work.

Nope, nothing like that in the manual for the Techma.

The techma is a macerating toilet, it has a grinder and such in it. No solids in the black tank, ever. If you just poured water in it, I'm not sure what would happen. liquids would probably "pass" but I don't believe solids would.
