The ones that are currently in place seem to have the brown paint - like the ones used on the interior of the moho.

They are #6 X 3/8. Get the 316 ss screws. I get most of my fasteners from boltdepot.com
Works for all the screws around the window.

Thanks Chris.

Sizing screws might seem a little mundane, what with everyone else replacing engines and converting to air ride suspensions, but that's where I'm at!! Nothing amazing. Replacing screws. Fixing awnings. Replacing/upgrading lights. Little things.

Got to thinking and looked at my orders for some of the many screws that I have bought for the AS's, They are #4 x 3/8. Sorry about that.
When buying Stainless Steel screws, I would always get the 316 grade, they are stronger and will cut into the aluminum good. What you would get at any of the box stores would the 18-8 grade, not as tuff!

Screws, and mirrors, and lights, and awning ... and a little camping

Did a bunch of little projects...

Replaced the exterior window-holding screws with stainless steel; repaired the passenger side mirror (thanks Chris); replaced the aisle lights, replaced the door lights and lenses, replaced the dock and spotlight bulbs; fixed the awning.

The awning had some non-standard hardware, and the z-lock was not functional - would bind up when deploying the awning. Zip Dee customer support was very helpful, as well as an old thread on the forums, and inspired me to remove, disable, and reinstall the lock, which is now simply a spacer between the end of the roller tube and the awning arm.

And went camping for a couple days at Geneva State Park. Everything functioned as expected, but as usual the repair/replace list got longer.

Now we are on to the toilet. As you all know, the toilet is on a rather high pedestal. I think its an original toilet, and the flush seal is no longer sealing. I either need to replace the seal or replace the toilet, preferably with a shorter model. Any suggestions on a replacement?

of all the toilets I have used over the years the porcelain Sealand511 is by far the nicest. You do have to consider which side the flush pedal is on

Dometic has a cheaper version as an option, but I do not know much about that one:

I agree with Peter, the Sealand porcelain is the nicest RV toilet that we have ever had. This model also uses a standard home toilet seat!

If this is the one you have, the seal is no problem to change. Get the Sealand seal, they say that it last longer!?

yes, Chris, the standard home toilet seat is the other plus. If I remember correctly, the seal is Sealand specific in size and screw holes (4 versus none on the other toilet seals)

Yes they are a little different for the floor seal.
Ours had to have the hole in the side for the over flow.

The ball seal is: Dometic 385316140 Sealand Toilet Bowl Seal, with side hole
Floor seal: DOMETIC / SEALAND 385310063 FLOOR FLANGE SEAL

Just a good time to take it completely out, clean it up good and refresh the install with new seals.

My problem is I can't figure out what toilet I have, so I can't get new seals. There does not seem to be any markings on the bowl or the "tank", and I have looked all over, behind and everything.

I may just have to spring for a new one. I have never installed an RV toilet - I am hoping there is a universal mount.

I found a document that gives the dimensions of the various Dometic toilets models, so I should be able to figure out which model it is.

It looks like the one in Chris' photo, but who knows. I am missing the foot pedal cover, so that distorts things a little.

Receiver reinforcement?

Thanks guys. I have decided to order the 511 - its on the way.


Now on to other issues....

Looking for someone to reinforce the receiver (and rear frame?) to allow me to pull something, either a small trailer or a toad. Recommendations in this field mean a lot to me...... so what do you got?

Its a motorhome after all, so I don't mind driving, but this is primarily directed toward the Ohio, PA, Indiana, Kentucky people. Can't go to that state up north out of principle....
