Potty Question (shame on you, this is legit!)

Howdy, we have an 89 T3350 which we have had parked next to our barn for the stable hands to use since we bought the spread (2001). just had the flushing mechanism on the toilet of the camper start to leak. Went to the local RV/Marine supplier and they were stumped.

I realize that the mfg is no longer in business. Could anyone tell me what type of toilet they used and where to look to for parts?

Thanks for your replies.

Ken

Thetford is the most common brand of RV toilet out there. Sunline used them as do many other manufacturers.

I am surprised that your local RV dealer could not help you. Repair parts for the older toilets should be readily available.

Post a pic of the toilet here and maybe we can give you more info.

Thanks, I must say that I went into the RV/Marine dealer and they were busy. The laady at the register took me to the wall where toilet/pluming parts were and we both looked and could not find the part hanging there. I waited 20 minutes for the guy at parts counter but it was obvious I would be there for a lot longer. Then, I realized that I did not know the brand of the trailer or the toilet. Came home and found that it was a SunLine and that the comode is a SeaLand. Could not find a model number on the thing though. I will take another trip to the parts guy with the part and afore mentioned info and see if the parts guy can find/order the part for me. If, after that, I cannot find it I will make another post. Thank you for your reply Steve. Ken

Hi Ken

Welcome to Sunline Owners Club

Don't know if this will help our not, but here is the parts call out of several Sealand toilets. Do not know if yours is in there or not.

Once you have a part number then there are many on line places that sell parts if the local RV guy cannot help you out.

Good luck

John

Thumbs up Thanks for your help

Thanks for your help JohnB . I think I'm on the road to a new water valve kit. That link was helpful in leading me to the manuals and identifying my model.

Happy trails to you all!

I had the same problem with our 1984 Sunline toilet leaking when we flushed it. It ended up being a backflow preventer washer. Very easy to fix if you have any mechanical ability. Searched for parts locally but couldn't find any, so removed the valve and made my own washer out of an old motorcycle inner tube that I had, any piece of flat rubber would work. Put it back in and problem solved.
