I have a Thetford Aqua-magic IV toilet in my 1990 Shasta. At least that is what I THINK I have. I got no manuals when I purchased mine RV. I found the PDF manual on-line at their web site, and downloaded it. It looks like my toilet. Anyway, the water supply to the toilet leaks.
It appears that it has for some time now, as there is a DPO repair, consisting of a thin piece of plywood at the rear portion of where the thing bolts to the floor. Now it is slightly taller (about 1/4" at the rear) and moves when you sit on it! This sets up more problems. The water supply line is only so long, with no give to it. So the rest of the DPO's fix was to add in a double threaded plastic piece of pipe to increase the length, and thus make everything bolt up, right?
WELL... with the thing tending to want to move, it was only a matter of time until trouble would follow. Where the supply line goes into the tiolet, on the bottom, in back, it began leaking there when the onboard pump would reach pressure. I haven't ever been brave enough to hook up to city water pressure.
I thought I had repaired the problem, by installing a length of 18" flexable hose between the stool and the supply line. Wrong!
The last time out, the pressure blew the line out of the bottom of where it is supposed to attach to the toilet! For the life of me, I cannot see how it ever held any pressure to begin with! there seems to be no way for this assembly to bolt to the toilet itself. It just slipped right out. Only the ridgid supply line was holding it in place to begin with, and my repair allowed it to blow out under pressure.
So my long winded question here is a simple one... Can this toilet be repaired, or should I start looking for a new replacement? I know that I should also look at the condition of the floor beneath my carpet around the base of the stool as well!
Thanks in advance for your wisdom,
