After stopping in an RV place I bought a new toilet flange and new gasket. The RV techs reccommendation was to not mess with the original flange at all, it would be asking for trouble. His reccomendation was to buy a new flange, cut the threaded part off (which he did for me), set this new flange right over top of the old one (a little silicone in between) line up the screw holes and fasten to the floor right thru both flanges (I might have to cut a little more off the new flange to get the desired height).
My other thought is if I don't end up that much higher, just doubling up on the gasket. I'll make my final decision when I see the finished floor height.
Any thoughts on advantages or disadvantages for either way?

p.s. I already have a higher toilet!

Tom,
I used 'plumbers goop' to re-attach my dump valves to the tanks. It dries slightly flexable and sticks to PVC like nobodys business. It would be great for sealing the joint between the old and new flanges. I got it at the local hardware store.

I'm with gardner on the Goop for your application. Been using it it for years and always keep some in the coach. Extremely versatile, but, the down side is its like silicon, its really tough to get off if you ever need to.

I wouldn't double the gasket. Its a much more likely to leak for you (in my opinion) seems like you could adjust the flange height as has been suggested and seal that well and then you should be good to go. The problem I envision with two gaskets is they will roll on each other and not provide a good seal. You have to be a little careful setting the toilet in place with just one of them easy enough to get things off center. Ask me how I know. But the gaskets for my application didn't have the screw or bolt holes. Just looked like donuts which fit over the male portion of the toilet which then sits down on the flange. At least that is what I recall.

I think the question still stands...Does the toilet flange screw on or is it fixed to the down pipe in some other way. I just bought a new toilet and the mounting bolts are 45degrees off. It would be great if i could just rotate the flange to fit the new toilet pattern. I am going from the old thetford aqua magic style to a SeaLand Traveler.

Any further updates or input would be really helpful!

Thanks

OK, it does indeed rotate. I rotated it and resealed it to work with the Sealand. Good luck to anyone that needs this info in the future!

I did the exact same thing a couple years ago. You will enjoy the new 'throne'. I did have to put a new seal in mine last year as it stopped holding water. This year I left some rv antifreeze in the bowl to stop the rubber from drying out. That was the suggestion of the place I bought the gasket from. We will see if it works in a few weeks when I get the bus back out of storage.
