New Toilet

I had to get a new toilet for my 250RB. $117 plus 9.95 shipping, not a bad price.

No there was nothing wrong with my first toilet. Wife and I decided to bring the sunset trail home and pull the windjammer up to Cahokia, IL where I've been living for work. More room, has recliners, and also to try everything out before we take it down to Florida.

She was going to stay 2 nights with me when we took it up, took the dog also.
First day the toilet wouldn't quit running, I noticed it just in time and shut the water off. So we had no water. Then when working on it moving the flush pedal back and forth I broke a piece on the toilet base where the pedal connects. So I was having to flush it with a screwdriver. It was the weekend and no rv places were open, I don't even know if they keep toilets in stock anyway.
So I'm in a bind. I have this big trailer set up, need it to live in for work, and no functioning toilet.

So I made a plan. Took the toilet out. I came out very easily, I was surprised. Brought it home and stuck it in a corner of the shop. Took the toilet out of the sunset trail and took it back up and put it in the windjammer. Works great.

New toilet for sunset trail is supposed to be here tomorrow by fedex.

Well, you solved your problem fairly easily. Can the old one be fixed?

Sounds like a Thetford they are notorious for the pedal falling off. A good idea is to install a valve in the line coming into the toilet.that way you can isolate the problem and still keep water working in the trailer

I couldn't find a replacement base.

If it's a Thetford, most of the repair parts that are available cost more than replacing the toilet. Buy the Dometic RW 310 or 320, 310 is a round bowl & 320 is elongated, parts are readily available & inexpensive.

Toilet installed, trailer back to usable condition.

I also got around to lowering my hitch ball 2 inches to match the trailer height, that was the difference in height between the 1500 I had and the 2500HD I just bought.
