Now to get it back in

Found an appropriate flange, apparantly they are all plastic now. To compensate for it not having a metal part, I purchased a "tabbed" flange(metal) at Home Depot, and re-fit it to go under the plastic flange. I drilled the metal to match the holes in the plastic one so I can use stainless steel screws to pass through the plastic, then through the steel, then into the 3/4 inch plywood floor. That way I have the plastic flange attached to the metal flange attached to the floor. Being "horizontally challanged" (read fat) I want all of the support I can get to hold the toilet level and steady. Had a friend who once ended up in a jam when the floor gave way beneath the toilet in his mobile home. Not a pretty mental picture. How do you explain that to the rescue squad, whose members will not stop laughing long enough to perform a proper extraction?
Pressing on,
bill b.

When I was a kid, I remember my grandmother being thrown off the toilet as it broke free of the floor in my grandparents trailer. She was young at the time, so no extraction was needed. I guess it is important to mount the toilet securely.

But how do you get the black water tank out, because it is leaking?

The black water tank for your Airstream, is below the floor.

You should find a large rectangular box that covers it up, underneath the fllor.

flange

I couldn't get the flange out of my 1967 waste tank. The floor was bad and I cut it out and even tried a 36 inch pipe wrench. Finally used an air chisel and hammered it out after breaking the metal flange to pieces. I think it was glued in. Have to try to repair the threads now

No, the flange was not glue in by Airstream, but they were difficult to remoce 40 years ago.

Best way, is as you did, break the metal flange in pieces.
