Question toilet flange ??

OK the flange on the right is the original flange the one on the left is the new flange.
is the plastic piece on the original something you need and if so can i get it at a RV parts store? By the way the plastic piece on the original is glued to the flange. i am thinking about going to Lowe's and getting a coupler that will screw on to the new flange and sticking it into the black water tank.
what do you guys think?

Osolow,
Is hole the current black tank threaded??? The flange and black tank on my '87 was threaded and you have a newer trailer than me so I find it confusing that a newer trailer would have an unthreaded black tank. Did a previous owner use the flange you pulled and just seal / caulk the flang into the black tank?

Can you provide a photo of the hole in the black tank???

Osolow,
Is your original flange threaded into the white "sleeve" that was in the black tank? Can you tell if the white sleeve was inserted into the black tank or did it (heaven forbid) break off from the top of the black tank? A close up of the original flange and the hole in the black tank might help.

I think some flanges have inside threads as opposed to outside thread. And I have also seen flanges that slip into the sewer pipes with just a rubber seal.

It looks like it. Our '74 has the threaded flange, it looks like your threaded part was cut off from the black tank. Try holding the flange, and unscrewing the plastic piece from it.

the threaded part looks as if it was glued to the top of the black water tank .
due to the toilet flange having glue or something put on the threads makes it impossible to break the flange and the threaded part apart from each other.
i have looked at the water tank it looks good just no threads now for the flange. i don't have the time or money yet to replace the back water tank so i went to Colaw today and picked up a rubber grommet to use.
