I have installed several in RVs. Piece of cake if you have a toilet with standard style seat bolts (domestic 310 or other similar). Most toilets are plumbed with pex pipe 1/2 inch so a simple sharkbite T with a valve and 3/8 male is all you need. The bidet at Lowe’s has a standard 3/8 water line and screws right on. Other brands (bio bidet comes to mind) have proprietary threads that must screw onto one of their Ts and can be a little more involved. The supplied T is for 7/8 thread for the cold water tank connection at your S&B, but you can usually request a HOT water T and it will be standard 3/8 thread and you can splice it in with a male and female 3/8 thread to 1/2 inch pex sharkbite.

Anyone that thinks a bidet in an RV is a bad idea has never tried one. Uses very little water and you use as little as 2 or 3 squares of TP per use. These things are awesome for your black tank.

Well pic or not the short answer is if the holes will line up with the bidet's adjustable plate yes it can be done. Just try the one Brondell at Lowes and if it does not fit take it back no issues. If it does indeed bolt on then get a 1/2 inch to 3/8 inch threaded T valve and get er done in 10 minutes.

The first use is a bit unsettling. By the third use you wonder how you ever got by without it.

The cold water just isn't a factor.

I'm bummed to find that my new Montana came with a crappy (HA!) Thetford toilet and it doesn't want to play nicely. My Dometic 310 arrives tomorrow. [emoticon]
