We don't actually want to REMOVE ours, but it has a "fresh" water leak that seeps out from beneath the stool when stepping on the flusher. My husband is afraid of breaking the outside plastic casing which must be removed to access the water line. Is there some "trick" he needs to know about?


This toilet is an AQUA-MAGIC GALAXY. Serial # 08420.


Thank you so any help you can give us!  Paige and David Bridges, Wills Point, TX

P.S. We have a 1986 Holiday Rambler Amuna-Lite.

John, this turned out to be more major surgery than that. My dear husband removed that toilet 3 times! Replaced hoses, etc. It STILL leaked. Took it - the whole toilet - to the RV repair (only about 20 miles from us, praise God) and found that it was a "diaphragm assembly" that had gone bad. It's located at the upper most part inside of the toilet. (Part of it makes for hinges for the outside seat and lid.) With replacement parts, the bill came to $72.00, which is still cheaper than a new toilet. But I DO appreciate the helpful replies from both you and VK.

If it leaks when you depress the flush pedal, I do NOT think its just a matter of tightening something up, its due to o ring type seals etc. in that flush valve assembly and they arent all that expensive or difficult to replace if you go to the RV dealer armed with make n model numbers. Most I've worked on simply have two vertical bottom johnny bolts that hold the toilet down to the floor flange and Id just REMOVE IT so you can do the repair sooooooooo much easier. If I recall you just buy a new bottom seal flange gasket and a new flush valve n youre off to the races. Its not really rocket science its just that things are tight n close n hard to get to.

VK, you are very kind to give us a detailed explanation. I downloaded a book for this toilet and it had some illustrations that seem to tell us the same thing. My husband is just very cautious about trying to remove this thing because it might be damaged in the process. The only problem it has is a small (fresh) water leak from beneath when you step on the pedal. We're sure it's just a matter of tightening the connection and putting the toilet back in place. Wish us luck!

Hi There, 

The Galaxy has two nuts to remove the stool. One is by the pedal if you hold it down. The other is in the back, directly below a plug under the seat. You will need a long extension and a universal (wiggle) socket will help. I'm remembering 1/2" but not sure...

It is very difficult to get one of these toilets apart without removing it. They usually have screws in the most inopportune places. It would probably be easier in the long run to pull and repair.

If you decide on a new one, the Thetford Bravura is the replacement model. Hope this helps.  VK
