Sealand Toilet Problem

Our Sealand toilet suddenly stopped working. No water in or out. It has never had a problem before. It is either a 510 or 511 - I am not sure which one. Thank goodness it was our second last day on the road after 4 months in Arizona. I have checked all the lines in and under the coach for leaks. The rest of the taps and shower work fine.

Suggestions?? Thank you in advance.

I think the only difference is height and associated parts. No water in or out says the inlet valve dose not work and the Ball (flush) valve dose not work. The only thing that operates both is the foot peddle. The plastic peddle could be slipping off of the lever but you should notice that, or the lever came undone. The plastic peddle is held in place with a single screw, if memory serves.

I assume the poor man's bidet doesn't work either!

Thanks, Harold. I checked the pedal and it is secure. I have the owner's manual with the diagrams. I may be able to replace the ball valve myself [maybe?] if I can order one.

PPL has an online parts catalog and they sell parts for these toilets (don't ask me how I learned). RV Toilet Repair Parts Online Catalog

They also have some nice exploded views of various toilets models including yours to help ID the part numbers. SeaLand Toilets - Motorhome, RV & Marine

Sealand toilets

Our Sealand toilet stopped sealing last month. We checked on repairs, but the parts cost as much as a new toilet. So we ordered a new toilet from PPL. They promptly delivered it to the mail forwarding address in South Dakota - not to where the rig was parked!! It took a week to get another toilet delivered to us, even though we offered to pay overnight shipping. Just make sure the person taking your information knows the difference between a billing address and a shipping address . . . . .

My SeaLand quit sealing not long ago. Took the pedal cover off and tightened the one screw, knock wood, its been working for a couple months without anymore sealing problems. Sorry for getting off thread.

Mine stopped sealing twice, first time I replaced the rubber gasket that seals against the ball, $18 - $25, if memory serves. Year or so later, stopped sealing again. Removed the whole thing and and dismantled it. Not a pretty job, but somebody had to do it! Cleaned about 1/8 inch build up of pretty blue mineral deposit from the Ball valve. Haven't used the blue stuff in forever! That was two years ago. I also had to replace the foot operated inlet valve because of leak at about the same time. After replacing it, having the old one in my hand, I found all would have had to do was tighten the packing nut on the bottom (almost against the floor). Paid $50 for it from Baurdry "Stick 'em Up" RV, in Tucson.

Biggest problem I have had is keeping the 4" round seal at the floor from wearing out from vibaration. Nasty job changing that. And it is a case of a $0.75 part costing up to $20 now!

If I never have to work on it again, it will be too soon!

Harold

Sealand

Has anyone installed a riser on their Sealand toilet. Does it involve lengthening any hoses?

If pipe fitting will not reach new location a short flexible hose should help you just as you might do in your home toilet.
