Here's a good description on removing mold from wood. From the Western Wood Products Association:

When it comes time to lift the commode, does the Microphor use a common household wax seal?

No, you have to access the trap at the back of the toilet. You can usually do this from the slide side reaching thru the wall where the slide tracks are located. You'll need to unscrew the trap and three air lines and then the two screws which hold the toilet to the floor. After all this is removed you can pull the toilet away from the wall and inch or two to remove the fresh water supply.

David, You are 100% correct (as usual) for the air operated Microphor. I think that the LF220 electric (straight drop) model uses a standard wax seal.
From their installation manual:
"Turn toilet upside-down and place enclosed Wax
Ring (P/N 27208) or optional Odor Shut-er™,
P/N40052-3, onto the bottom mounting flange of the
toilet hopper. Carefully turn toilet right-side up and
place over the center of a standard floor discharge
flange. Press toilet down firmly and evenly to form
a seal between the wax ring and the floor flange.
Mount the toilet to the floor with the four Closet
Screws and install Bolt Caps over the closet screws
(both provided)."

Our 2001 has the Microphor LH-220. We were able to remove it through the rear cover. It does use a standard wax seal. Ours is 12 volt only, no air operation.

Wow, you guys have been busy on this thread since I posted this morning. I, on the otherhand, have removed all the 1/4 inch subfloor, with the exception of the commode area. The subfloor look great and will be ready for new material on Thursday.
Ian and I will brave the cold and traffic and head to Irving in the am. My supplier has plenty off stock and it is all there at their warehouse.
David, the back support of the slide is concealed by a cabinet. It does have the vertical sliding door that moves when the slide moves. I did not find any more leaks of any kind. Coach is in great shape and with the material they selected, will look super.
Ernie- tired of the cold and nasty wind here in Weatherford.

I got rid of the Microphor $%#$%@ air toilet. Here's a link that shows the macerating toilet I put in its place in case you're interested.

I like the Microphor LF219 air toilet. It's ingenious, simple to work on and rebuild, and at least for me, it's always worked.
