Maybe someone should send this whole thread to him. And it seems like there is only one problem - a poorly designed poop "trap" shelf.
301TBS....You have to remove the toilet and then measure. I'm guessing as each toilet is installed, the length of the pipe is left up to what the installer cuts it to. I cut the pipe as short as possible and then added a bell fitting to make it as large as possible where it entered the tank. I bought a new/larger flange from Home Depot to match the new pipe. You want the pipe to be just long enough to mate with the seal and not protrude into the tank.
**Note...I could not get the flange to fit directly into the opening under the toilet. I had to unscrew the false floor under an adjacent cabinet, which allowed me to slide the new flange into place via the cabinet. This was 8 years ago, so some of the details on the repair are sketchy, but the repair is doable and helped alot. Finding a tank without a shelf would be the best repair. I know they made some for the recall, I just don't know if they're still availalble.
The thing that made me crazy on mine was that there was no water shut off at the toilet. When you needed to plunge the toilet, you had to go outside and turn the water off at the spigot so the water wouldn't run while plunging. Adding a valve to the water line at the back of the toilet would be handy.
I also tried to add liquid soap to each flush, but that only helped a little.

on my coach i had to pull apart the flange where the handle is and get a long pair of needle nose plyers to grab the factory punchout for the tank that was left in there.it would always drain very slow until i got the punchout plastic out of the way
