toilet relocation

I'm remodeling the bath in my 97 Aerbus on an F53 chassis. It would sure help if I could move the toilet back about 3" closer to the wall. I'm sure I could deal with cutting out and patching the subfloor to do the relocation if I could also relocate the holding tank attachment. How is the toilet flange attached to the holding tank? Is it relocatable? How is it accomplished?

Any and all info is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

When my pipe dropped out of the flange and into the holding tank, well almost, but did separate from flange. I found the pipe into tank is held in tank by a rubber grommet seal. If you pull hard enough you can move the pipe up and down but do it slowly.
If your going to move flange I would find a possible off set from pipe to flange so you can use same hole in tank. If you brake the seal to tank be prepared to have some bleach handy because if your dumps miss getting into tank you will need it.
Thats the other half of the story when pipe drops out of flange.

If you can not off set the drain pipe to align the tank inlet port and the toilet flange, you could change to a toilet that uses a built in maceator and can pump it through a smaller hose with no problem. I can t recall the make & model names but it should not be hard to find with google search.

The offsets should be available at Lowe's or HD. In the plumbing dept.

There is also a special offset that has a 45 degree elbow built into the closet flange. It is useful in situations where there is a tight fit or an obstruction nearly below the existing closet flange location. Look for it an a plumbing wholesale outlet if you can't find it in the big box stores.
