Toilet schmoilet

My old gal came with the Traveler model which has one pedal and is hooked to water lines on the side and back and also has another line for this sprayer like the one most people have on their kitchen sink for which I am confused as to its purpose.
Anywho, I am faced with the decision to replace toilet altogether or repair some small leaks on the lines.
Recommendations, advice or suggestions welcome!!


Oh and p.s., boy did my former owners not know how to aim!! Gross.

The sprayer is available for a rinse aid to clean the bowl.

If the original toilet is all plastic, new units can be porcelain. Easier to clean and will not age like plastic.

Best luck

This posted upside down.....location, side of toilet near main water valve but up higher on underside of bowl. The flat out stream was lessened by some tightening but still drips.
Washer replacement inside that brass cap possibly?

This pic is an attachment from behind the bowl, one line the sprayer and not sure as to the other. Whole thing broke off when I was attempting to figure out if the sprayer could just be removed and let the other do its purpose as well as simply trying to get some decent pics to pinpoint exact place of leak be it crack or seal or.....

Ok....I bought the new "two headed" kit but I am now stuck with how to get a thick rubber piece into the back side of where the longer piece that broke off screws in to.
Do I remove the "head" of the toilet considering the pedestal wrap did not lead to the area I am dealing with?

I take that to mean you didn't find the article useful. I can do some more research on your behalf, but really need to know the make and model of the toilet in order to do that.

The only direct experience I have is with vacuum breakers that pass through a grommet that's pressed into the hole, as in the article. I think that was the question you were asking, isn't it?

Correct, wrong article for situation.
I have the correct new part I think, I simply haven't had any luck finding out if it is safe to literally yank out the only leftover part I accidentally broke in half and the black band looking thing behind it.
But then again, I am not 100% correct it is the same part due to how this new one that will go into the back of the toilet is much shorter.
With literally an inch and a half space back there to crook my fused neck, I don't want to run the risk of making things worse.
My toilet is a Traveler, but I am only coming up with Dometic and SeaLand parts and having to assume based on looks, shape and size that they are correct aftermarket items.

http://manuals.adventurerv.net/Domet...s-2000-100.pdf

My toilet is the one on the left and the diagrams are a joke to say the least where my above queries are concerned.

I looked for a while and could not find any Sealand/Dometic Traveler toilets (110, 111 or other) where the vacuum breaker has screw threads where it enters the toilet, as yours does. The Traveler 510/511 has a longer tube than the 110/111, but it still enters the toilet through a rubber grommet that presses into the opening in the toilet.

I replaced the breaker on a 511, and that's how it went in.

I'm wondering how old the toilet is. Any dates on the label? If old, parts may be difficult to find. A press-in, 511-type breaker might work, if you could remove the old grommet and fit a new grommet in its place.

That's about all I can come up with.

I guess I will remove the "head" off of the pedestal base and see what else I find along with all the urine splatters and dust and germs, LOL

This one seems more like the one I had one but I can't tell if that is a screw on cap, the white round thing. I don't see threads on the end of the tube either.
And that is only if I bite the bullet and just yank the thing out hard resulting in probably having to replace entire toilet.

That's about all I can come up with.
With much tugging, twisting and a small amount of cursing, I finally got it out, along with the grommet.
And of course, the one I bought is, as we figured, not long enough in the tube that reinserts nor will the Dometic one Camping world might have in stock tomorrow have the threads this one did or the black grommet included judging by its photo
Dometic Hand Spray Kit - Dometic 385319054 - Toilet Accessories - Camping World
Unless the black grommet is that bone colored ring?
It is either that or the ring I had to first unscrew to even get the broken tube and grommet out.

And no, no dates of any kind, just Traveler Sealand and some town in Ohio I think it is, LOL

We recently experienced the same sort of link, changed our vacuum breaker/sprayer hose fitting in our 1993 Monaco Dynasty coach and have experienced leak-free flushing for a while. We made a video, too. Sealand model 511 toilet with a Domenic replacement part.
