We just purchased our first RV a 1989 Champion Telstar. In addition to driving it home from Vegas Nevada where we bought it, we have taken our maiden voyage on the Island to Long Beach. Other than the toilet springing a leak "Miss Dasiy" has performed admirably. I am in the process of taking the toilet off and replacing the gasket. Hopefully this will fix the problem. I also ripped out the carpet in the bathroom and replaced with stick on tiles.

Rickas, Welcome to the IRV2 website, glad you joined our group.
Glad you had an enjoyable first time experience with your coach, the new gasket should fix your commode. Ed.S

Glad to have you aboard.

When you reinstall the toilet, be sure and use a new washer in the water connection to the toilet as well. Just one more source of a leak.

I'm sure you will enjoy the "new" coach.

Ken

Thanks for the welcome and the advice. Got the toilet fixed not sure if it was actually the gasket or not as the inline hose was kinked and water was leaking from there also. I put a new fitting on in addition to being able to turn off the water supply ( if future leaks)it fixed the angle of the hose so it no longer kinks ergo no more leak. Man these RV manufacturers did not design these things for easy access did they?

Welcome! But any type of toilet repair, RV or not, isn't any fun at ALL (nor easy!).

Hope it works for you...glad to have you on!

Rickas, glad to see you got the toilet repaired and now you can spend more time on the forum with us. We had an 78 Champion Titan several years back. We had a lot of fun in it but out grew it with the girls growing up. Glad to have you here and look forward to reading of your adventures.
