Toilet Flange

I have a 2000 Bounder 39Z. I'm replacing flooring in the bathroom. Can anyone tell me if the toilet flange is screwed in or glued? I have removed the screws in the flange but it's not moving. Thanks

I have a 2002 Winnebago Journey. On mine, it was glued in. I put the 2 toilet flange bolts in opposite each other and used a large pry bar and carefully worked it back and forth and it came out.

I love it, have to be of a certain vintage to appreciate that I bet

OP, I'm not sure about others, but mine was glued.

"calleryj".....If its glued on, see if you have a panel where you can reach the top of the black tank. It's probably hose clamped into the tank. Loosen the hose clamp and pull the flange and pipe out as one unit.

I would be sure the drain pipe is not attached first....if you force the flange out, you may damage the fittings/pipe down stream.

Just say'n.

Toilet Flange

Calleryj.... try twisting it to break it loose. I recently did the bathroom floor in my DutchStar. The flange was screwed down, but it was also glued to a one foot down pipe that friction fit into a flange on the top of the black tank directly below. Yours may be held in place by sealant, or perhaps just by time and gummy grit. Apply some torque and see if it helps.

To the pipe. glued. to the floor screwed, at least that is the way most of 'em do it.

YOU can get a "Screw in" replacement flange.. IT has an expanding rubber gasket, as you screw it in (to itself) the gasket expands.. I've only seen it in a store never used one.

toilet flange

The flange is threaded into the top of the tank. Put some pressure on it and it came right out. Thanks to all.
