Alan, and you didn't even use Duct Tape. Red Green would be so disappointed. But what ever works.

Haha I left this out of the red neck post cause i didnt know at the time how it would have worked. But I can say now that it is very noticable.
I got some of the wifes vaseline and a Qtip and lubed all the moving parts. Haha I have to say Much better, almost on rollers.

If you have boat or plumbing store around you there is a teflon lube that they use that dosen't break down as fast a vaseline. I left it at camp and can't give you the brand.

Speaking of the front porch !

our previous 5er had a sensitive foot pedal and called dometic about it,
two days later I have a whole new 510 on my front porch , no question asked !!!

Never installed it as we traded not long afterwards and it's in the 3rd garage gathering dust...

I too would rather an elongated toilet like MOST homes have nowdays

Thetford sent parts for our toilet pedal issue (pedal kept falling off). We called the local RV repair guy today, told him that we needed parts installed on a Thetford Aqua-Magic Residence and he told us he wouldn't even work on that model. Not one of Thetford's better designs.
So, we purchased the Thetford Aqua-Magic V. It seems to have a simpler flush system and fits the space nicely. We don't really care if it is a high end or low end toilet, we just don't want something that falls apart after 5 months use. We'll see.

I know this is an old thread but my OEM toilet flooded me TWICE last summer. The toilet will not hold water in the bowl when you want it to but the bowl fills and overflows when I go to work for the day!
First thing to go when the snow melts and the park opens, replacing broken spring will be task 2.

Replace it with a Dometic 310 (round bowl) or 320 (elongated bowl) not another Thetford POS, you'll be glad you did.

Take it from someone who has been there! Regardless whether you repair the existing toilet or replace it, it is well worth the money to purchase inexpensive water alarms and place them strategically around the rig. I put one on the floor next to the toilet, one under each sink and one in the underbelly. They can save you big bucks from major water damage! One other very important recommendation..................Whenever I leave the rig for any amount of time, I turn the water off!

We had the same problem. Replaced it with a Dometic. I also added a shutoff valve behind the toilet in case we ever need a quick water off.
