New Toilet Time !!

I'm looking to replace the toilet in My Jayco 31RKS TT. I have a leak in the back of it anyways, PLUS,I want to get one that is higher (Handicapped model). Can anyone offer suggestions for what to get or not to get? I'm looking for one that washes the bowl well. Thanks

What do you have now? Cause it does matter when upgrading. Not all interchange with the current closet flange.

Go to a major RV store such as Camping world of if in Michigan General RV and take a look at what they have.

There are many designs.. The only suggestion I'll make is this

There are two seats, Round and Oval, Oval is better.

Sun Mar. Invest a bundle and never deal with the black tank again.

Thetford makes a toilet riser that you can use with any RV toilet.:

Dometic and Thetford RV toilet models:

RV Toilets - Dometic

http://http://www.thetford.com/HOME/...6/Default.aspx

Tweetys.com usually has very good internet prices on RV products and here's their toilets to give you an idea on cost:

http://http://tweetys.com/rv-toilets.aspx

Do you know the actual height you want? Maybe you can find one that is close to the height you want without using a riser? I know some RV toilets are taller than others and they make a "high profile" model. If you presently have a plastic toilet, now might be the time to go with a porcelain toilet. Or maybe you can just install a riser. I don't see a Dometic riser.

There is a flange adapter available so different toilet makes can be used:

http://http://www.americanrvcompany....it%20instr.pdf

By comparison, a standard residential toilet height is around 14.5" - 15.5" floor to rim, so an RV toilet at 17.5" is a lot taller. Just 2" makes a big difference.

Unless you get this done at a shop, make sure you replace the gasket between the flange and toilet even if it looks okay.
