Can I move toilet flange?

I was hoping to replace Dometic 310 toilet with 320 model, but flange is 1" off.
Is there any easy way to move it?
Thanks in advance.

Is the newer model (320) bigger than the previous model (310)?

I don't understand how the flange can be off. You're talking about the flange on the floor?

It's more than likely that the flange is attached directly to the black tank, so you'd have to move the black tank, too.

The manual says you need 10" clearance to the back for the 310 and 11" clearance for the 320. So I'm assuming you don't have an extra 1 inch behind the 310 as it's installed?

Yes 320 is bigger, elongated.
There is no room behind 310.

An offset flange will offset to a maximum of 2". If you want to offset only 1" forward, you will have to also offset to the left or right an inch or so (think cam). Also, offset flanges require much more depth than a standard closet flange and require you to cut an oval hole in the floor to accommodate that depth. Whether or not you can use one will depend on how much space you have between your floor and the top of the black tank. Offset flanges are very flimsy and do not last long, but if you are dead-set on using one, get one that incorporates a metal ring that will spin around the outside edge - these are much more durable than the all-plastic offset flanges and they have several more holes in them so they can be screwed to the floor to make them as secure as possible. They are also better for getting the center you are looking for. The all-plastic offset flanges are flimsy, have a limited number of screw holes, and the way they are configured limit you on exactly where you can set your center.

Good luck,

Bruce

An Offset flange will work. if you do not have enough depth between teh floor and the top of the black tank you can raise the level of the toilet by shimming below the toilet with a Non-Absorbant material. Exterior grade plywood could be cut to fit the outside profile of the toilet and then sealed with a polyurethane varnish so as not to absorb any liquids that could have leaked from the toilet seal.

Where do you get offset flange?
Also how do you remove old flange?I guess it will be glued to black tank.
I got all screws out, but can't pull it out.

At a plumbing supply store. It attaches to the old flange, it doesn't replace it. Hence the reason it raises the toilet height.
