What’s the one most important feature of your recreational vehicle? Of course, it’s the RV toilet!
When that one RV appliance malfunctions, everyone’s frustration and temper will quickly come to the surface.
RV toilet repair can be a messy situation. Limited accessibility usually requires you to unbolt and remove the toilet from the RV. That’s just to gain access to the mechanical parts that make it function.
Before you head off to the RV dealer to have them repair your problematic depository, consider this:
Their labor rate is around $100 an hour. Just having them remove and reinstall your old RV toilet will cost you more than the price of a new RV toilet!
Man up and remove the old one yourself. It’s only held in place with 2 bolts.
You’re better off to spend your money on a new toilet instead of repairing the old one.
You may want to upgrade to a nice porcelain RV toilet, while you’re at it. For just a few more dollars you can have the same quality feel that you experience at home.

I’ve been involved in RVing for over 50 years — including camping, building, repairing, and even selling RVs and motorhomes. I’ve owned, used, and repaired almost every class and style of RV ever made. I do all of my own repair work. My other interests include cooking, living with an aging dog, and dealing with diabetic issues. If you can combine a grease monkey with a computer geek, throw in a touch of information nut and organization freak, combined with a little bit of storyteller… you’ve got a good idea of who I am. To date, I’ve shared my RV knowledge in over 300 articles here at The Fun Times Guide! Many of them have over 25K shares.
