Toilet Seal Replacement?

I am in the process of replacing the floor (with Armstrong vinyl tile) in my 2009 25FB Int. When I get to the bathroom and lift the toilet to replace the linoleum under it, will I need to replace the toilet seal? Or can the existing seal be reused?

I have looked at some YouTube videos and it looks like it has a foam cushion seal of some sort. There is no evidence that it is leaking.

Thanks!

Toilet Seal Replacement?

New seal is always a better idea. You won't be able to get it back together exactly as it was. Cheap precaution against leaks both water and sewer gas.

Replace it. They are less than 10 bucks. I pulled my toilet twice in the past year to deal with a leaky flush valve. I put a new seal in both times to be on the safe side.

Thanks for the recommendation. Replacing the seal does make sense. Are they readily available?

Any RV dealer has them. I got mine from eBay.
