Toilet questions

My 2012 Eddie Bauer has the toilet flush pedal on the left side (if seated), next to the bathroom cabinets. The ones before this one had a front lever. This is inconvenient for me. I'd much rather have the front pedal or the pedal on the right so I could easily use it while walking out into the hallway Is it possible to switch this pedal to the other side?

Also anyone know of a replacement lid for this one?

Paula

I have nothing constructive to add, but "use it while walking out into the hallway?" And I thought I was put upon because I'm supposed to put the seat down.

To flush it without getting my foot stuck between the handle and the bathroom cabinet. Nasty bruise right now.

Paula, just break down and get a Pedal Pusher Stick.

1. One inch PVC (custom cut, to your length, of course). Add end caps to custom cut PVC.

2. Drill hole through and near one end of Pedal Pusher, and install rawhide shoe string loop.

3. Install removable 3M hanger adjusted to your desired height at back of commode.

4. Lastly (but most important), set down and enjoy your new Pedal Pusher.

I have the 27' EB and believe we have the same toilet. As far as I can see, to achieve what you say you want to do will require a new toilet with the pedal on the other side.

Get one of those new Dometic porcelan toilets. They are skinnier, taller, and clean much easier. No sprayer needed.

As I remember, (I haven't seen mine all winter) the pedal sticks out the front a bit on the left side as you sit on it. (You can flush it with your heel while sitting, if you like.)

They are handicap height, so it's much easier to get up from it. Also they use regular toilet seats that you buy at Lowes, Home Depot, Menards, or wherever.

Did I mention skinnier? Mine opened up quite a bit of room next to the cabinet.

Oh, if I sell 100 of these I get a new camper.

Yes, mine also has the higher skinnier toilet, no top rim so overflow could happen easily. I'm left handed so I am probably right footed. I might just make a push rod.
