Bravura Install Question

Repaced my Aqua Magic Galaxy 30 on my 73 Soverign with a new Bravura.
This Bravura is not seated and rocks, old galaxy seated firmly to flange.
also seat cover hits vent shaft on left and vanity counter top on right.
So did any one have problem with seating this unit?

Be sure that the rubber bottom seal is put on correctly (up/down orientation) and that the flange bolts line up properly. The outer rim of the Bravura should be directly on the floor and not touching the floor flange.

Tighten the flange bolts and you should not be rockin' or rollin'.

I replaced the Aqua Magic on my 20' Argosy with a Bravura but because it is deeper in the back, I had to cut the silly little storage compartment behind the toilet off, the one that was there on the Argosy. I like the Bravura, because it is a larger toilet, but because it is larger, it is not a direct replacement for toilets in close quarters. Thetford does not make this clear in their literature.

I had no problems with the flange, or seating. Mine is solid, like the original was.

Check the directions for the proper locations for the mounting bolts. My old toilet had the bolts at 11:00 and 5:00 and the Bravua suggests 9:00 and 3:00.

Thanks for input.

I will pull toilet to look at the closet flange seal, Thetford Tech support said this is the best replacement because of same bolt placement. (11 and 5) i can modify seat but i can't puy up with a {rocky} Bravura.
