Planning to replace our Thetford toilet with a Dometic 311. From what I can tell, the base mounting bolts are the same. Can any one verify that? Are there any other installation issues I need to be aware of?

Thanks for your help.

I'll just add that I replaced a toilet in the MH. Looked easy. That is until I took the old one out and put the new one in only to find out that the water lines where not the same height and didn't reach. sigh.

I had to take the new one out and put the old one back in. So check the water line hook up that it matches.

I changed out the ceramic one in my Monaco. Took about 30 min at the most. Has worked perfect ever since.

i changed toilets several months ago
FUBAR
in this bounder, the floor flange was glued to tank inlet pipe,
and i could not remove it to install a new flange
the bolt pattern was different orientation and i had to use a vibrating multi-tool with plunge saw blade and cut NEW notches in the old flange

this is the 3rd MH, that i replaced the old toilet, and the only one that was a PITA, the other two were easy
