OH CRAP(er)

I removed the toilet today in order to put in new linoleum. Surprise surprise, the project quickly became more complicated. The flange has some rust and I am not sure the assembly would go back together (it had developed some wobble). I gather that the original flange is no longer available. Are the flange/upright bolt sizes standardized across the industry, or am I looking at a new toilet as well?

I guess I might as well ask what people favorite poopers are and where they got em.

Rodney,

Have you ever given it a thought to install a baday toilet? It may just help save on water by limiting the need for a shower when boondocking.

I bought a new plastic floor flange at the local hardware store that fit my 1967. I also bought all the parts at the same store(True Value) to rebuild my original toilet. Adios, John

John, my toilet is held to the flange by two long bolts with dohickies on the bottom that go into slots in the flange. Turning the bolts turns the dohickies and locks them and the toilet in place. Is this how your toilet was attached?

you should be able to get a proper flange at OODMart or regular RV supply shop....I did.. to get the old one off you may need to make an "airstream blak tank wrench" out of angle iron with a grinder... see my thread '69 Safari Bath Floor Repair for details.... thanks to Pizzachop, Zep, and others for hippin' me to dis...

I just made my first pilgrimage to Camping World. They had a great selection of everything RV. Might have a few poopers to choose from. Check them out.

Do you mean a "bidet"?

Um, I don't think a bidet is a toilet, it's meant for washing yer privates, to put it bluntly. They do NOT flush in the normal fashion...

Unless you've discovered one that's equipped for both functions? A bidet, for example, has no lid or ring to sit on.

Anyways, please paste a link if you've found something new or interesting?

They do have models that serves both functions - a google search "bidet toilet combo" yielded many links . . .

I thought you were kidding. I'm not forward thinking enough to go that route. But I am proud that I haven't worked a 'turn the other cheek' joke into the thread.....

No joke intended, really. Just thought that it could be something to help make things more usable and at the same time more efficient.

It looks, however, that the combos are rather expensive!

Well, it would make coffee redundant on a cold morning. That would wake a guy up
