Toilet

How in the blue blazes do you get the toilet out?
Is the water line the only thing holding it in?
I have disassembled the vanity (removed) next to and behind the toilet . The 1972 shop manual is of no help to me. I have the valve disassembled and wan't to take the toilet out.

Do the bolts go through the top or bottom?
Do I have to take something off to see them? I don't want to cut blindly and destroy something that is needed to have a functioning toilet.

On the top left under the seat there is a plug remove plug and a 7/16 or 1/2 nut way down at the floor you need a few extensions or one real long one.
Under the foot flush is another nut easer to get to.

These instructions are based on an Aqua Magic

When you remove the toilet the bolts will be in the 2 and 4 o'clock position.

To replace with new toilet the nuts will probably be on the sides and you will have to move the flange to insert the new bolts.

The flange is a screw in type to move use a hammer and screwdriver or punch to move the flange enough for the new toilet bolts.

Thanks, at least I have an idea where to look! I think totally gutting it would have been my best option thus far. When I am done , I will have everything out except the walls to the bathroom and the walls to the two twin beds. Everything else has or will have been out!

Yes, if your toilet is the original Thetford you need to remove the plug at the top and with a swivel and extensions you can get at the bolt in the back. The one in the front you can find, as noted, under the front foot flush area. Once you take the nuts off, and the water line is disconnected, it will lift right off.
