While camping in Oregon, the water supply valve on the back of the toilet began leaking badly. We shut off the pump which meant no water use for 8 days but we did OK. My portable sink was a great convenience and the campground facilities were nearby. The dish water was emptied into the holding tanks.
LHC has sent a new Water Module and a mod for a supply line cut-off. The cut-off allows only the supply to the toilet to be stopped, so the rest of the water system can still be used.
My question is about Thetford’s instructions for replacing the Module. They begin with removing the toilet. I used a mirror to check out the area and it looks like the Module connections are all visible behind the toilet. They could be accessed, although it would be awkward. Is it really necessary to remove and reinstall the toilet just to replace the Water Module?
We don’t plan on doing the job ourselves but I’d like to know what to expect. The kit includes a new seal but in my search for info, it seems that the result of reinstalling the toilet can result in odors. It’s just that we’ve never had odors and sure don’t want them now.
Then again, our Casita is 14 years old so maybe the time is right for a new seal.
