Toilet

I have a 1970 31' International Sovereign Land Yacht
the toilet has a black rubbery seal between it and the screw in flange on the top of the black water tank.

This seal is diminished to the point that it will not hold a seal and water is leaking onto the floor with each flush.

I need help either finding a replacement seal or finding a replacement toilet

Thanks.

gasket

I got the gasket at my local RV dealer, but take the old one to the dealer with make and model of toilet, as there are several styles.

toilets

We have the original toilet in our '67 Globetrotter. Setting it on the lawn, we ran a hose to fill the bowl with water. Letting it sit for a few minutes, the water level drops. Guess we have a bad seal, or is this a feature that drains the bowl automatically so water doesn't splash out while travelling?

Bus: that's a different seal than firefighter is referencing. He's talking about the one that is analagous to the wax ring seal on your house toilet. The one you're talking about seals the blade-valve that controlls flushing. My understanding is that it too can be replaced. You might try cleaning out the groove that the blade slides back and forth in with a coat hanger. Sometimes little pieces of TP can get jammed in there by the blade if you let it close too quickly. that'll make just enough room for a sloooow leak.
I've also read here that silicone spray on the valve seals will help to lubricate them.. And there's some stuff that thedford sells called "drain valve lubricant" that might also help, although I believe it is intended for the waste tank valves..they pretty much work the same way.

make and model

am i to assume that the model of the toilet dictates the seal rather than the model of the trailer?

yep. I don't think airstream had any proprietary toilets...but I could be wrong. pretty safe bet that they always used 3rd party standard stuff in that department.

I have a thedford in mine...don't know if its original or not.

This may be what you are looking for....

This is a bottom end seal rebuild kit. Does not contain a new blade valve though, just the seals. I paid $26.95 from local RV place.
