Pulling the toilet should end the madness.

I have withheld this story for five years, but here goes.

A neighbor of mine is a chronic practical joker - his long suffering wife just responds by buying more and more life insurance so that when she has him bumped off, it will pay her well!

So... finally he pulled a tasteless prank that was just the last straw. She vowed revenge and got a rubber tarantula that was spring loaded so that it could jump off of the table or whatever. He and a buddy were watching the Redskins go down the crapper when her hubby decided to clear the way for a few more brewsky's and stepped into the unlighted bathroom. He turned the light on, raised the lid and was just getting ready to sprinkle when he saw the spider - and tried to flush it down - whereupon the spring let go, the spider flew up and he, in shock screamed like a girl and baptized most of the bathroom walls, floor and ceiling!

Talk about a practical joke backfiring.

Neither of them will EVER live that one down.

Paula

I agree that you should just be done with this and pull the toilet from the floor. I did that job last year on Old Lucy (2000 Safari 25FB) in order to replace the flapper gasket. I replaced the floor gasket at the same time. I would recommend that if you do pull the toilet, you replace both of these gaskets.

Once the toilet is out, I think that you will have much better shot at retrieving the toilet brush. I would try this first as pulling the toilet is pretty easy compared to pulling the black tank.

Your dilemma has taught me a lesson. I am now shopping for a toilet brush with a 3' handle.

Is the Vaseline for smell? If so, wouldn't something like Vicks Vapo Rub be better to mask things?

I have a goatee and mustache - never stuck Vaseline on my face before - sorry if this is a dumb question.

And good luck with the toilet!

Wow - and I wasn't even drinking - yes I meant VICKS - not vaseline.

It's threads like this that keep me coming back to the Forums nearly every day. This is a hoot!

Apologies to the, um, "injured" parties. May success follow your many "explorations".

Jim

Take it to your Airstream dealer and have them get it out. Worth the $$$$ they charge per hour. Besides they will probably be in a hurry to get it out, finish it up, and close it up.

I like the idea of the holes and strings on the brush. But, why bother at this time. It's in there, it did not block the dumps, maybe it won's. Keep checking to see if it passes under the toilet and see if you can "fish" it out.

I like Pappys idea, or a small child, but then you could get charged with either spousal abuse of child abuse.
