With the aid of mirrors, a flexible shaft on a cordless screwdriver
and lots of contortions, I changed the valve on an RV toilet in place.
Before I understood how they attach.  Now, in about 2 minutes I spin
off the two anchoring nuts and give another minute or two to
disconnecting the finger-tight water line nut and just lift out the
toilet to work on it.  RV toilets have a foam rubber seal instead of a
wax seal so unless the toilet has been in place for years, no need to
change the seal.  Just set the toilet back in place, spin the nuts and
you're done.
