Question Removal of toilet flange

I bought a new Dometic toilet and the bolts to hold it to flange require the flange to be turned to match bolt pattern on new toilet. Is there any cutting of pipe needed and can any parts needed for repair be purchased at places like Lowes?
Thanks !

I had this issue with our motorhome. Even though it may not seem like it, it can be turned without cutting anything on rv's from what I have found online.

I used a standard flat pry bar, put the end of it in the groove at an angle, and went to town on it with a hammer until it slowly worked its way to where I needed it.

Agree, on mine the flange fit down into the drain pipe about 3 inches and was a really tight fit and also over the years, it had stuck really good. I had to pry up a fraction of an inch before I could get mine to turn.

Home flanges and toilets all all standard, don't know why RV's should be different.

If your flange doesn't have grooves or slots to adjust the bolts, then go to lowes and get one that does. It should be a 3" flange. Pry up on your old one one side at a time until it comes out and replace it with the new one. This will make installing the new toilet easy.
