Residential style toilets

Looking to see who knows of brands of toilets that some rv manufactures put in RVs with tanks. NDJollyMon has one in his and i know the "Park" models have them. I am thinking of getting one to replace mine. It just doesn't function correctly.

and google does not work. i get searches for normal rv toilets, chem toilets or black water tanks...

Cant use a home toilet in an RV. The big issue is holding tank capacity. Every flush will take 1.5 gallons of water and would fill the typical holding tank in no time. Now if you are really insistent on doing it, then any toilet would work as long as you have the space.

Go to your favorite home improvement center, and look for a toilet that you like, and get the dimensions to be sure it will physically fit the spot you want it in. Then, you can get a residential bolt-down mounting setup, and hook it up yourself. It's really not too complicated. And, since you could get a pic of jollymon's toilet, maybe you can also get a manufacturer's name for his. That should give you at least a starting point. They really aren't made to be transported around in a mobile environment, such as RV use. Usually heavy porcelain also, which is why they are mainly only available in a park model, not built to be towed around a lot. Randy

Not to mention, if you just leave the valve open you will have issues with buildup of "solids" in your tank.

well with them freezing open or shut atm i got them open. ive been dumping a pail of water down after each "use" of the facilities and i can see the bottom of the tank now! (was a layer of frozen stuff down there) so i think its been working so far.

I debated about the going to a hardware store thing. I heard somewhere that rv toilets are "11" inches from the wall but residential need one more inch. and the gooogles. they do nothing. dont know if its just not right key words or too many or what. but i will keep trying
