Lucky break!

In an all to rare lucky break, while the flange was all rusted making it unusable, the screws had also degraded making it fairly easy to dislodge them from the floor. And the big shock was the flange screwed right out like it would on one of those DYI repair shows and didn't require explosives like in my normal life.

I also went ahead and bit the bullet on replacing the toilet, figuring it was all apart and the new seat did look a lot more comfy. They are also on sale at PPL so why not? I went with the Dometic Traveler Lite 210 with sprayer in the bone color.

How's this for trailer talk?

Folks, its time to leave medieval toilet habits behind (pardon the pun)! The 21st century is waiting for you to catch up. Wiping your keister with a handful of paper just doesn't compare to the sanitary elegance of the modern bidet toilet seat. And once you start using it, well... I've never felt fresher! (My wife says she wishes she had this device when she was still menstruating.) What I'll save on toilet paper over the next, uh... 200 years, will pay for the device.

Two bathrooms in our home have toilets equipped with Toto Washlet bidet seats. <http://www.totousa.com/Default.aspx?tabid=88> They require 120VAC to operate, but they have heated water, heated seats, heater air drying, stream oscillation and pulsation -- all adjustable -- and some other features, all of them controlled by a wireless remote. My little 1955 riveted aluminum airframe trailer, 15' ball coupler to rear bumper, has a new Thetford Aqua Magic Plus (china bowl) toilet, and a 12 gallon black tank.

But no factory Thetford bidet seat. However I have located and shall hopefully acquire and install a decent little unit that will do the job -- the Smart Bidet SM 100. <http://www.idealm1.com/Smart_Bidet.php> I don't have a water heater in my little railer (no shower, no need) My onboard fresh watertank is above the floor, inside the trailer, actually below the stove/oven, so I don't need water heating, anyway.

The "big trailer" Airstream owners can shop for bidet seats here <http://www.mydispenser.com/Bidet/bedit-menu.html> It'll soon become your favorite appliance, I guarantee it.

Spartanaciously yours,
Michael

Michael!!!!

Pretend the theme to 2001 A Space Odyssey is playing in the background....

I feel so enlightened, transcending my previous cave man station in life.

Better than fire (ouch), club (ouch again), or leaves (itch).....

Thanks!!!

Steve

BTW I am not kidding my DW has wanted a bidet in the bathroom for years - had no idea that a such a thing as a bidet seat for a toilet even existed - nice!

Thanks Michael!!!

Rodney, I don't think there is any goop for this purpose, but check at the hardware store. If there is sealant, it'll be the same stuff used for residential toilets.

Hi Rodney,

You got me curious, I am also in the market. Planning to replace carpet with cork and the old Thetford has a broken seat. Hard riding with a broken saddle.

Anyway, I downloaded the manual and the only mention of any sealant is if it is being installed in a shower stall (or wet bath, I guess), see Installation, page 4, step 4 & Figure B. Otherwise the floor seal, step 6, takes care of it.

I know that the Thetfords have a closed cell foam floor seal and no sealant. I guess they would also need something in case of installation in a shower or wet bath to keep water from outside the throne from getting to the floor underneath.

I didn't realize that SeaLand was a Dometic product till you got me checking. They look like a nice place to "take care of business." Post some photos when you get it installed. (Unoccupied, of course.)

You don't need sealant, Just the big foam $45 gasket. Adios, John

Rodney,

Don't forget to balance your running gear and install a good sway control device.

Just use the foam ring. Domestic toilets use a wax ring and they will not perform correctly in a RV. Too much movement on the AS and would eventually leak. You can get a foam gasket at any RV supply. I've bought it at my local RV before.
