not sure where you got the 25FDS, since no such number is listed for the 2004 Roo. there's a Roo 25, Roo 25BH and a 25SS, but no 25FDS.

here's a list of the 2004 Roo floorplans with model numbers:

is it a hybrid? do you know the brand/model of toilet.

just trying to figure out which Roo you have. neither NADA nor RVWeb list that model.
is this the floorplan?


the FD might mean front dining and the S is for the sofa slide.

as for the toilet, you should be able to download a manual for the toilet from Thetford's website.
it usually have install pics and operation instructions.

Repairing a Thetford Aqua Magic V

Has all you need.

In fact you may not need a new one. Just remove the old one and poke out the bit of calcium that is blocking the port and open it up with the proper sized bit (BY HAND!)

I think I might even open it up to 3/16" or 7/32" to prevent a recurrence. And as you stated, use the drill bit BY HAND. Do not use a drill motor.

I think I mentioned in my post what size bit I used.

Ack! I just checked and I did not. I believe it was 1/8 inch.

Had the same problem and I started with 1/8 and kept increasing until I got to 7/32 after looking at a new replacement at the rv center in Kissimmee. Had a lot better washing action. 2 yrs later had to replace the whole valve due to leakage inside the valve body.

When I added the hand wand I found I did not need so much water in the flush.
We dry camp A LOT and the wand saves us a TON of water.

Spraying directly on what you want washed down uses less water at higher pressure than the water running around the bowl. Even a lot of water running around the bowl.
