    I was told to move the toilet away from the wall and the serial / model numbers are on a placard on the back size by all the mechanicals. I didn't get around to working on mine yet. I think I'll wait until after the holiday before I risk messing something up and being down 1 toilet.

    Depends on the model as to where the info is. If he could attach a picture it would be easy to tell him.

    Went to the site and my head looks pretty much like the Alantes A5 except the handle is a little different. When I drill down for the details it says the A5 was replaced by the Alantes Freedom on 9/1/05. It says "for information on units manufactured prior to 9/1/05 click on this text", which takes me to "NOT FOUND". There is no excuse for that happening on a corporate web site. I will take a photo next weekend when we return to the boat.

    Anyway, I'm getting closer to the info I need. Thanks.

    I had the same experience with their site before you! I laughed when I read this.

    Mine has a plastic handle on the left side. Is that what yours looks like as well?

    That's the same model I have then. Can you tell me if it has an impeller setup or if it's a diaphragm that pumps the water from the lake into the bowl?

    What's your toilet doing wrong that you need to fix it?

    It has a FloJet pump/impeller mounted in the hold below the head. The head is not holding water in the bowl after each flush. Only an inch or two. We have been adding a couple cups of water before each use, but it goes away after flush. Somebody told me that's the check valve. What does a check valve look like in that unit?

    So it doesn't have a diaphram style pump? Does it actually have a serviceable impeller?

    Ours does the same. I was told adding a vented loop to each toilet should do the trick. I contacted Raritan and priced the vented loop at ~$100 each.
