How does Thetford RV Toilet Works?

The Aqua-Magic V RV Toilet comes with around 18-inch-tall seat height. The toilet’s single pedal offers two different functions; you can depress the pedal fully to flush to the toilet, and also you can depress the pedal partially to fill the bowl.

Choose an optional hand sprayer and you can easily clean your toilet at any time. The good thing about the toilet is that it is perfect for spot cleaning throughout the season. Moreover, before preparing your RV for winter storage, use foot pedals to increase pressure for deep weather cleaning.

Keep in mind that when you are not using the toilet, keep the lid completely closed. Also, if it is closed, it prevents debris from falling into the tank. Lastly, you can choose the toilet with a foot pedal or another with a handle flush that is mounted on the back of the toilet; it totally depends on you.

Does a Gasket Seal Come with it?

No, it doesn’t come with a Gasket seal. A gasket seal is very important as it connects two flanges or components that have the same surfaces. It is used wherever a flange is required to prevent leaking. In Aqua-Magic V RV Toilet Pedal there’s no Gasket seal, so you have to add an additional flange gasket.

If you want to buy a toilet that comes with a gasket, then go for Dometic 320 Series Standard Height Toilet w/Hand Spray.
