Update....

I have never backed away from a challenge (get the old A Magic working properly) but I have caved into the pressures of the relentless "dw".

This morning I ordered a brand new Sealand Traveller Lite. Price was 219 Canadian plus 14% taxes.

Maybe with a little I can get her to pay half...lol

I gotta dumb question Andy, if you read this, how can I convert my 2004 Safari's single pedal to the older dual pedal. I loved the seperate bowl fill pedal because more times than not, I hold the single pedal too far and it drains out into the tank. Is there a kit or a parts list you know of that I can swap this out without severely modifying the head? Our 2003 19' Bambi had the dual pedal, but our 2004 25' Safari SS has the single.

May sound too simplistic, but our '75 Argosy had the same problem with water draining from the bowl. Hubby (John) removed the toilet and found previous owners/guests had flushed non-compliant objects down the toilet. These became lodged and prevented the flapper from closing properly. Once cleaned and re-installed...original toilet works perfectly and did not cost a cent.

"non-compliant".

A little petroleum jelly on the ol' flapper can't hurt either!

That and let a little valve lube sit in the bowl once/twice a season...

Thetford makes a tool for just such a job(cleaning the slot for the slide closure). It looks like a bent screw driver and really works. Sure fix for leaking bowl. Call Thetford to order. Paper stuck in slot. To prevent, make sure no paper left in bottom of bowl when going into prolonged storage. Also add water to bowl so it won't dry out.

our 74 thetford still works!

Amazingly enough, with continued use, and cleaning, our original thetford is now retaining water in the bowl, with no special fixing!! Why replace??? These originals are amazing??

woohoo.....Just spent the best $6.00 buying one of those extendo mirrors to see in small places. What I found was a nasty little concrete like wad of TP that took some good elbow grease to get out of the flange slot. I tried and tried previously but couldn't shake anything loose and thought there was nothing there just faulty mechanics. I was all set to order the whole flange kit replacement but thought I'd give it another go. I bent a set of tweazers to get in there. A crappy job but somebody had to do it. Made my day!!!

That's when you feel good about that box of disposable latex gloves you bought.
