Replaced Toilet

Our bathroom has gotten to where it smells pretty bad all the time not matter how much we clean it.
Now I started seeing water coming out from under the Toilet base at by the floor.
I pulled the Toilet off and found the plastic pedestal had broken where the china bowl attaches and it had been leaking inside the pedestal.
There was quite a bit of stinky water inside the base that ran out when I lifted the toilet off the floor.
Bought a Dometic Model 320 Toilet and installed it in place of the factory installed Thetford Toilet, cleaned up all the mess that had formed under the toilet by the flange, the Dometic 320 is much nicer Toilet and no leaks and no smells.

I see what you did there.

JB...hopefully, the floor didn't absorb any of that water.

I hope so too, it did not appear to have absorbed any water, everything looked solid, but I am not sure.

been thinking of making that change myself. Had the 320 in our last RV and like it much better than one in our RW. Was it a easy swap no special Mods Needed for the change?

The swap was very easy. Took longer to clean up the mess and sanitize the flange and floor from the internal water leak in the Thetford Pedestal than it took to actually remove the old Toilet and install the new Toilet.

Just remember to dump and flush the black tank real good before doing this, it can be a crappy / smelly job !!!!

The Dometic 320 water connection is in the rear and I did not need to modify the water line to reconnect it. (I understand the Dometic 310 requires the water line be modified to connect it)

Just remember the Dometic 310 and 320 Toilets are longer than the Thetford Toilet and require more room behind them to install.

Due to the way the toilet is mounted in our FL, there is plenty of room behind the toilet and the Dometic 320 fits fine.
