dometic 310 china toilet

I am also looking for the "right" toilet for my '87 Avion 32S.I like the Dometic China 310.Now I see they offer it in "Bone" color,It looks grey,but as usual not one supplier has a large decent picture of what it actually looks like.
I like this toilet because it is taller than my current toilet which seems very low...
I am also going for "looks" in a toilet.

What about the Thetford Aurora...that's the one I'm considering. It's China, and comes in high or low profile. Seems like a good replacement to my Starlight/Galaxy (yuk).

Can't you just use only two of the bolts? On my two-bolt toilet, the flange has four slots.

It never occurred to me that I needed to use more than just the most convenient two.

Possibly, you might have to rotate the flange to get two bolts into a good position to use them...

The new 310 china has 2 bolts at 3 and 9 o'clock.This flange cannot accept two bolts at 3 and 9.There is an adapter kit offered by sealand.I think its what I need,But I want to be sure before I order it.

I see.

From your photo, it looks as though the four existing bolts are all exactly opposing. If you rotated the flange an eight of a turn tighter (or looser), one pair would be at 3 and 9 on the clock, wouldn't they?

Or what simple thing am I not getting here?

Thanks Aage! That may be a great idea.This flange is original to my coach,a 1987 Avion 32S.The bolts look somewhat rusty,but I assume they are only going thru wood,so they should loosen up and cooperate.Or is it easier/safer to use the sealand adapter kit.....

Hi,
I replaced an old plastic toilet with a great china bowl model. To save alot of time, measure out your width, length and heighth specs. Call Steve at Vintage Trailer supply. Be sure of your size, he did a GREAT job for me, finding the right model that did fit my Globetrotter. What a difference that made to the quality of the bathroom.

Well, I don't know anything about an adapter kit, but I know that I wouldn't want to add any height to the assembly.

And, those bolts? They shouldn't be going through any wood; they should be only going through the plastic (or iron, can't tell from here) of the flange, and that's it.

Take the flange out, if you have trouble getting the other (unneeded) bolts out. Again, I can't tell if the bolts are on elongated slots, or just in tight holes. If they are on elongated slots, you don't need to do much to pull them out. A wiggle or two should do it.

Anyways, the flange just unscrews. Maybe it's stuck a bit, if it's never been out, but there should be nothing holding it in there beyond the threads into the tank. Shouldn't be any screws or bolts holding down the flange. Tap or two with a hammer and a screwdriver should get it started. Not too hard, now...

Toilet

Back to this problem.I am ready to install my new toilet Dometic china 310 which is a 2 bolt,My original flange that is bolted to the floor will not accept 2 bolts at 3 and 9.I have been advised that I cannot use a 2 bolt toilet with an adapter because it will leak.Now I have a brand new toilet I guess I cannot use or return.

Can you not rotate the flange so that the holes are at 3 and 9? Unbolt, rotate, re-bolt.

This is assuming that the bolts are at 180º from each other, and the flange is bolted into the wood, and not your tank (both are the Most Likely scenatio, IMHO)

toilet flange

No,Its bolted to the floor.And the bolts are rusty,so as soon as the Phillips screwdriver hits the head,they strip.They would need to be drilled out,I dont want to mess with that.I have been advised to buy another Toilet with a 4 bolt.Which is too bad,because I really like the Dometic 310.
