Help Rotating Toilet

My toilet is turned a little too far and so it's easier to go by leaving the bathroom door open or sitting a little sideways on the throne. Otherwise, your knees are up against the bathroom door.

I want to rotate the toilet a few degrees counter-clockwise. So I removed the toilet and then removed all the screws from the flange. But it seems the pipe is glued into the actual tank, and I'm unable to budget it. Any thoughts on how I could break it free without breaking the black tank?

Had that dilemma (I think) years ago. I think you can take like a Dremel or similar tool with a round cutoff blade, cut around the inside of the sewer drain, remove it and replace with a new section that you can put the flange on...if that makes sense. You will need to reseal/glue the new section.

While I haven't had to remove that toilet flange on an RV did have to do it in the house. Using that Dremel or, better yet, a 1/4" chuck capacity die grinder, cut the top off then make one cut down the side of the fitting. By doing that, you may be able to break the rest free and slip the stub off easily with a screw driver as that cement will often break loose. Your replacement will need to be a black ABS or RV type fitting as you already have on your RV. It will need a dedicated ABS cement. A note on that cement - the combo PVC/ABS cement just isn't very good and may break loose due to driving vibrations.

Good luck and let us know how you make out with the project

I had to turn mine about 45 degrees.
Just took of the toilet and used a dremel to cut new holes on the flange for the two bolts that hold the toilet down. Used new gasket and it is working fine.

Obviously the people that build these things never use them.

Here you go NOTANLINES- another business opportunity - develop a swivel mount for the toilet and maybe add a rocker recliner option?

I rotated my toilet a few degrees in a previous camper. I removed the toilet and the bolts to the floor. Then, I took a flat screw driver and hammer and gently tapped the flange and it began to rotate. When it was in the position I wanted, I put the bolts back in and reinstalled the toilet.

I tried that, banged on it pretty hard, all to no avail, the glue is holding strong.

I think itís time I invest in a dremel tool. I think Iíll try this before resorting to cutting off the flange.
