Wayne, what are you calling the riser? RV toilets don't have what I know of as a riser unless you mean a toilet seat riser for someone who needs a higher seat height. It would not flood your house if it broke. It might pinch a bottom, but it doesn't control water flow.

'Riser' would be the connecting pipe from the shutoff valve at wall to bottom of tank?

Hay STMs!
Today was a good time to see the Sonoran desert come into bloom. Many things at their peak, others just beginning.

Here are ocotillo (2), cholla (2), barrel (1), and prickly pear (1) cactus in bloom, and saguaro (2) just beginning.

Also a sign by the tour road that we sat by for a while. About 20 bikes came by but nobody did this trick. Dang, woulda made a great pic!Click image for larger version

Barb - Wayne's familiarity with the riser harkens back to his days at NASA when he tested the space toilet.

The tour guide was extremely upset but the tourists got a big kick out of it. The riser can be seen just below the seat in the center.

Hay, I saw that at Houston Space Center in the early 90s. Did some work for them.

Astronaught Bob Crippen is supposed to have perfected the vac operated space toidy called Crippens Crapper.

Wayne, were you there? The hose in front is....nevermind. Not going there.

But does it or can it leak - or need to be periodically replaced to keep from leaking? Our little half bath has a riser - but it's rally nothing more than a platform that the toilet is on as best I know.

Riser. Raises something, right? My toidy is bolted to da floor!
If my previous MHs had risers I would not know. Never had issues except a water valve. Cant replace what I cant see.

Oh and fyi. I have 20,000 of just Buchart Gardens in Victoria.... Have them on a separate hard drive, but filled up 2, so now have a supersize one, But sometimes i am just too lazy to go back and look.... 22 countries, 46 states in 10 years, and we both have digital SLR cameras...
Btw.. If you never heard of groovebook. It is a great way to get 100 prints a month, for like $3.... I saw it on Sharktank, i will bring and show you. Quality not super, but it is a great record...
