Couple more mods and we now have an awesome new toilet.

Where are we today ?
Rock Glen Resort Arkona Ontario
      We have a perfect day to some inside repairs.  Overcast, rainy and cool. So at 8:30 this morning I began the install of our new toilet, expecting a few minor issues and yep we had some. Not a big deal but took a few hours to get things all done. Couple modifications to do. Easy to do and all done.
old toilet
     The main issue was the anchor bolts did not line up. So to the local Hardware store in town and picked up this adapter ring as seen below. But a minor problem here it raises the toilet 1/4 inch above the floor. Not good, we rocking and rolling all over the place.
      So not to modify even more. Picked up a small piece of plexiglass and cut it to size and sure did the trick. Almost. Jus a tiny piece of plywood make it all fit.

new brass flange and plexiglass booster I made
      Below is the new install. Same high profile with a ceramic bowl with no rim too a bonus!. Nice and easy to clean.
sure is nice and a good price too
       Now to relax for a few minutes and our friends Bill and Patsy arrive from London. Checked out their new amazing 5th wheel, They plan to go fulltime next year.
Bill, Clemson and Patsy, they both do blogs
  the odd time to, as well
        While we enjoyed a "Happy Hour" here we had our chicken on the Q right beside us. Turned out perfect too as usual.
so crispy, tasty and juicy
Just add a salad and some hot sauce we ave a feast
          Now that was another wonderful day, even decent weather too..
          Thanks again for stopping on by.

  2. Good thinking on getting the new ring and the plexiglass to prevent the wobbling toilet.

  4. Fixing a toilet may not be lots of fun but look at the alternative. Using rest stop bathrooms would be even worse. Good job!
