The toilet seat hinge on one side is broken. Can it be replaced and how? A local shop said I'd have to replace the whole toilet. I sure hope not! Ed B. (Ft. Myers, FL)
Ed, in most cases, the toilet will not have to be completely replaced. The hinge can be replaced on many RV toilets, though it may entail replacing more than just the hinge. For example, on one model in the Aqua Magic line, the hinge is actually an integral component of the vacuum breaker assembly. So it all depends on the brand and model of your toilet. If you send me that information, I’ll be able to determine with better accuracy. But I’ll hazard an early guess that it is indeed possible.
