Suggestion: tuck in some 1" fiberglass matt and aluminum foil (radiant barrier) before you put the panels back. Al between the foam and FG.

Repaired black water tank. So what happened was I was replacing the toilet socket and cracked and broke the fitting that connects to the top of the tank. I bought a 3 inch coupling, epoxyed it in the previous hole. Then flex sealed the whole area. The waste valve also need some small repair even though it didn’t seem to bad but I went ahead and epoxyed that area as well as flex seal and will be replacing the whole waste valve assembly with a new one. I’m glad I found out the old valve did not work anyways. Sorry forgot to take before photos but here are some afters.

On mine, two bolts hold down the toilet, one on each side. Unscrew the nuts and disconnect the water line and the toilet comes up. After removing the toilet I had carpet under the the toilet flange. Usually 6 or so bolts holding that down but mine were rusted away. I tried to remove them and that’s how I broke my tank. If you can get yours out and it’s like mine, you should be able to unscrew the PVC extension (with the toilet flange) from the tank top of the tank (be careful).

Glad you got it fixed!
Yea... the whole carpet in the bathroom thing... :? . That's one of the 1st things I did was to remove all of the carpet from the entire coach.

I just looked - mine doesn't have bolts like a household toilet, just slides around the flange apparently. The 4 legs can lift from the floor.

Yes carpet everywhere! It blows my mind! But mine is gone except the drivers cab which will be redone when the home area is finish.

Looks like you have a different toilet than I did!

Update photos. New waste valve installed. Previous walls that made the bathroom, fridge housing, and closet have all been sanded and put back up. Plumbing will be rerouted as it used to go through the closet and In front of the fridge. Will now go behind closet and behind fridge. Started building the built in couch which is actually more designed as a day bed. I’m putting a wall behind the drivers seat which is why I built that hollow post in the pictures. Unsure if I want to use it yet but it’s main purpose was to hide/make the wall behind drivers seat flow a little better. We will see as the build continues.
