Kathy have you installed the toilet yet? How did it fit? Do you have any installation pictures, etc.

I have a question - how to you access the riser area under toilet where you attach the bolts?

I stumbled upon some of your other posts about an Argosy. Do you have an Argosy? If so, those bolts can be tricky. Do a search on Toilet removal Argosy. There's a good thread out there. you might need a ratchet universal joint for one of the bolts though. That's how I got mine out.

Biggoofball, I now have a 1976 Argosy 24. = ) I just updated my profile.

Where are these bolts and what replacement toilet did you install? I'm not even sure if mine has the original or a replacement, but a new one would be nice!! This one is sitting slightly off center and the lid won't stay up by itself.

Thanks!!

I used a Thetford Aqua Magic 5 Low Profile. It's not China but it works well. Here's a photo. This toilet mounts on a closet flange, just like in your home, except it uses a rubber seal instead of a wax ring. The seal came with the toilet.

TG Twinkie, did you have to remove the lid to the "Secret Compartment" in order for the toilet lid to stay up?

We were able to keep the secret compartment cover, but we had to relocate the hinges to move the cover up a few inches so it would clear the toilet when opened. Yes, the toilet lid stays open (on level ground). :^)

I will be able to keep the lid, I just haven't gotten around to putting a new cover on it and installing it. I don't care for the shiny gold covering on the old lid.

Some pictures of how we relocated the secret compartment lid

This shows the finished product. I wasn't too fussy and left the old screw holes exposed when the lid is opened. Simply move the hinge and the roller latch down an inch or so, and recover to suit.
