Toilet model

My 1986 345 has the original toilet. I have a small leak up high under the seat while flushing. It is a Thetford toilet but I do not know what model. Anyone have any original paperwork on their units?
Thanks, Rob

Rob,

I don't know what model you have but it sounds like a vacuum breaker leak. It is usually located in the rear of the unit, high on the back just below the seat. If it is bad, they have to be replaced......very easy task.

Lew,
You normally have to pull the toilet to do this job, is that right?
I have seen the exploded view from some newer Thetfords, and I was suspecting that might be it.

It depends on how tight the bowl is mounted to the wall. Sometimes I can get my hand back there and can wiggle out the v. breaker. It usually just slips into a rubber fitting. If it is screwed in.......you're screwed! But really, it's no biggie to remove the 2 or 4 bolts that hold it to the floor and get to the back. If you do......replace the closet flange/wax ring to save yourself the job of doing it again down the line. Use an inspection mirror to check how it's in there.
