We have an irritation since we bought this coach(36M). the toilet squeeks when we sit on it and move. I was wondring if there are other Sunrise owners who have the irritation and if they had found the cause. I have had delars and customer service at Winnie try to fix it and they have reduced it for a time but it comes back. As best I have been able to determine the floor is not the culprit.

I had the same trouble with mine. I kept loosing it up& retighting until it quit. Drain the water down before you loosen it. I don't believe we have the same toilet though. By the way, we hate this sea-land toilet we have!

Same with ours ...Sealand. The squeaks can come in handy. If I need to go and hear the squeaking I know the throne room is occupied...

It's plastic on plastic rubbing. Check out Camping World or someone similar for a china-bowl toilet. You can even get one in two different heights... had them in two previous RV's. Worth the money as far as I'm concerned, though I haven't changed out the one from my Sightseer yet.

When you pull the toilet make sure all the screws are in the floor flange that screws to floor and may need a sealent under floor flange.
Should be able to tighten lower half of pedestal with four bolts to floor flange after placing rubber seal than tighten the steel band around bowl and pedestal so no leaks will accure there.
I have two toilets, Sealand, which I had to rebuild because of leaks ,loose toilets and pipe falling out of floor flange into tank.
While your at it check that pipe into tank, to make sure pipe is glued to the floor flange.
I will not discribe what its like when the pipe is not glued here but its not nice.

Ours is a "china-bowl" and still has squeaks. I just haven't been bothered enough about them to try to find out what exactly is squeaking. It could be the plastic trim around the water connections I suppose...

Guys! I emailed Sealand after finding out I was not the only one. they recommended that I lube the clamp area where the China clamps to the body with something like Vaseline. I haven't gotten the time to try it, but thought I would pass it along.

Sounds like the fix as described by 007!

Great information! I might try to install a china bowl myself. Seems like it's pretty straight-forward...
