RE: HELP Leaking toilet

My leak was the valve. $50 bucks from CW for an incredibly "modest" looking plastic replacement. Had to remove the whole toilet to get adequate access. One of those "character-building" RV days. Start by stepping into a puddle of ice-cold water at 6AM. Spend the morning looking for what ends up being an incredibly expensive (for what it is) plastic part. Spend the afternoon disassembling the one system in the RV you really never wanted to deal with! But, end the day with a satisfying flush! Sounds like I did not get all the water out of that valve in the toilet. I still haven't had a chance to drive out to where I store the trailer to look at it... (30 minutes away). maybe this winter I will disconnect the water line into the toilet and blow air into it. Lucky I did find the part on amazon for $28, if this is the actual fault and not just a loose supply line or something.

RE: HELP Leaking toilet

One point just in case. I assume you are using a pressure regulator between CG water supply and input hose, right? I am not hooked up to "city" water, just from my fresh water tank. and if I do, yes, I use a pressure regulator. THANKS!

RE: HELP Leaking toilet

Our Thetford Bravura model is held to the floor with 2 nuts/bolts, one each side at the base of the toilet. Ours are covered by plastic caps, some models may have a snap on cover to hide them. Just undo the bolts and lift the toilet and turn sideways to see the valve mechanism at the back of the toilet, the plastic water lines should be flexible enough. Ours was leaking from a split/crack in the water valve (about $50 at our local RV store. Also replace the wax or foam seal ($2-3 part) were the toilet seats to the pipe going to the black tank. Almost all toilets, stick house or RV are held to the floor with the two bolts held to a toilet flange screwed to floor and sealed to plumbing pipe. Beverley and Ken Yeah, newer generation a little easier to remove/install. these bolts are hidden pretty well. I'm pretty handy so it shouldn't take too many swear words! I better get the toilet off and see if I have a split valve or loose line somewhere!

RE: HELP Leaking toilet

Interesting.... I tried to reach back and hand tighten the supply line and it was tight, I could feel the water leaking further up from the supply line. I guess I need to take the toilet off and turn it over and inspect it before I start buying parts. I was also thinking that I should add some dyed water into the bowl and see if colored water leaks out the back to help eliminate bowl seals..... looks like a pain to take off the toilet bowl. 2 nuts hidden inside the toilet. see manual. owners manual link

HELP Leaking toilet

Had the trailer out for the first time in 8 months. all appeared to be going smoothly until I notice water leaking behind the toilet. it is very tight back there, and I am not sure exactly where it is coming from. How do I get my toilet apart to look at it? It is a Thetford Aqua Magic SH with my hand I blindly followed the supply line and it is not leaking from there, but fairly close to it. So what I was doing was turning of the pump when not in use and the leaking stopped for the most part unless there was built up pressure in the lines. Thinking it is a water valve.... thoughts please.

I need a dump station The Dalles to Portland, OR

I am leaving on my first trip of the year to a new area. on my way back I need to find a place to dump my tanks. I will be coming from The Dalles and heading west on I-84. Yes, I have seen the websites that list them, but I don't trust them too much as the info can be outdated or there is not enough info on there. I will need this dump station to be accessible and open on Sunday June 23rd. I see Memaloose State Park says it is free, but I think I must pay to get into the park. I am no longer a Good Sam member, could I use the Camping World dump station in Wood Village? Price? Anyone else have more ideas? Thank you!

RE: Boondocking suggestions in Mt Hood National Forest(OREGON)?

good boondocking just north of Black Butte all along the metolius river . bring good maps and a gps gorgeous among the ponderosas plenty of downed lodgepoles for fire wood hiking along the metolius . I have been on the Metolius before my RV. I remember lots of camp grounds. are all the boondock spots further north after all the camp grounds or in between? Thanks for the info.

RE: Boondocking suggestions in Mt Hood National Forest(OREGON)?

thanks for re-bumping this topic. as 2 oldman and others have said Oregon is boondock camping nirvana . those folks who spend their time in an rv park and cannot get along without full hookups are totally missing out . we have camped along quartzville creek. our favorite boondock camping is near little summit prairie near the ochoco ranger station. take hwy 126 eastbound from prineville , onto 123 , onto road 42 . actually all over the ochoco national forest . Thanks for the info. I will need to scope that area out. The wife needs some sort of water source (creek, river, lake....) I just need quiet! :)

RE: Boondocking suggestions in Mt Hood National Forest(OREGON)?

Okay, I know I haven't been on here in a while and I haven't used my trailer since deer season (Oct 2012). Well the weather has been getting better and I need to use my trailer to justify owning that thing!!! since this is my thread I thought I would add some links and consolidate some info so I can come back and access it. Old Barlow Road was great, just need to make sure that you can get in and out. 1 lane dirt road with limited turn around areas. http://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/26173672/gotomsg/26925956/p/1.cfm#26925956 http://www.hogtimemusic.com/nomad/WIB2011.htm http://www.blm.gov/or/index.php http://freecampsites.net/attribute/states/or/ With the portland area becoming so large, I really think if you want to "get away from it all" you need to drive atleast 2 hours away from the population center. Last year I scouted several areas with out the trailer. took pictures, made notes, but I think I need to drive a little further away from Portland.
