Cool Wobbley Sealand Traveler Toilet

OK, as part of the restoration of my 1984 34' Limited, I replaced the original toilet with the Sealand Travelor. The toilet is really nice, but it has a noticable wobble when you sit on it. The floor was a little rough where the flange mounts, but all in all, not too bad and only slightly rotted. Really, the rot is limited to the immediate area around the hole. However, the screws did not have really good material to bite into when mounting the flange.

Is it normal for this toilet to sway a little? Do I need to rework the sub-floor (say no, please). I have already installed new cork floors throughout, so access to the subfloor is somewhat problematic. What about pouring rot doctor all under and around the flange?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

hello panabax ,no it should not wobble at all ,do whatever you need to reinforce the floor ,You could fabricate a riser out of a larger piece of wood
coat it with firberglass resin ,no fiberglass as your sealing the wood .It could be large as needed and say 3/4 thick ,new premium wood of some type ,somthing that could be stained to blend in with the flooring .You would have to extend the toilrt flange a little for the thicker support .I would give that some thought ,I replaced my subfloor and still did a 2" riser and veryu happy ,our traveler lite is solidly mounted .

Good luck there,

scott

Thanks

Thanks for responding. I was afraid of that. Oh well, I will pull the toilet and see what kind of access I can get. Maybe the cork panels will come up easily in the bathroom. I will let you know what I end up doing to shore it up.

except for the question of.......

how far doth thou rot go?
me hopes not far,
but don't know
