Thetford Aqua Magic IV Toilet Replacement

My 1999 25C Six-sleeper has the original low profile Thetford Aqua Magic IV that won't hold water at the blade valve seal. I have never liked this plastic toilet, so looking to replace it anyway, rather than repair. Has anyone ever replaced one of these with a Thetford china bowl toilet? If so, which one?

I need to stick with low profile and am looking at the Thetford Magic Style Plus. I am open to all thoughts and ideas...the A/S comes out of winter storage on Saturday.

Thanks...
JC

One of the main issues with replacing the plastic toilets with ceramic bowl toilets is the distance between the center of the hole and the back of the toilet. On the one you mentioned the distance is 11" vs 7 5/8" for the plastic model. On my 25fb I don't have the space for 11". So if you have about 3 1/2" to spare between your current toilet then you should be able to upgrade.

JC, did you ever replace the Thetford Aqua Magic IV? I want to replace mine with a ceramic toilet and was wondering if you have any advice (I have a Sunline Solaris, actually, but found your post just thru Google). I was worried about the comment Kelvin made about the different sizes of the toilets on the interior. What did you finally choose? Thanks! Aariel

Not yet..

Barely used the trailer this year and got the bowl valve to hold water. Maybe next year.

Thanks for the reply. I thought you might be interested in a message I received from Thetford the other day ... [btw, the "middle of the flange" means where the bolts are, she clarified for me later]. Here it is:

The replacement toilet that I would recommend would be the Style II. The bolt pattern of the two toilets would be the same the only problem is that the Aqua-Magic Style II is 9-1/2" from the middle to the back of the toilet, where the Aqua-Magic IV is only 7-1/4". You will need to make sure that you have enough space between the middle of the flange and the wall. If you do not have the space, the upgrade would be an Aqua-Magic V but that one does not come with the ceramic bowl.

If you have additional questions, please contact us.

Thank you,
