So I purchased a Thetford and trashed the Dometic 310 toilet.
The flap to gasket fit doesn't last very long. If you use bees wax or candle wax (warmed and softened) on the flap and the bottom of the gasket it will seal again for months. I've kept mine tight for 2 years that way.

Well as you guys have instructed, I unscrewed the water line to the toilet. I can't believe how much grit poured out of the opening. Used the back end of a toothpick with colored streamers to try to clean out the the inlet. Screwed water line back on, turned on the pump, flushed,,, and no water flow! Huh, unscrewed water line again, more grit poors out, turn on pump to make sure water line is clear, screw onto toilet and Presto! Strong solid flush.

Now here's my question, if the whole house water supply runs thru the water filter, where does all that crud come from?

Excuse me for butting in, but I have the exact same problem, but only when I'm on the pump. When I'm on city water the the toilet flushes pretty good.

Crud is from pipefitting beyond the filter, great majority of piping.

Sounds like your problem is probably with the pump and not the toilet. City water and pump water use the same lines so if it flushes well on city then it should flush the same on the pump.

Ok, so now that I know to clean out the strainer behind the toilet, the question is how many more times am I going to have to do this??? I've had this coach for 2 weeks and I've already had to clean the valve out 4 times!! Is this eventually going to clear up, or am I looking at doing this twice a week for the rest of my life?

Ummm. My guess is until you clean out your lines/tank or maybe you have a problem with your water filter. Have you looked at it? Do you have on installed?
This is mine but your may be in a different area.

My set up is exactly the same as your pic. What I'm getting out of the valve looks like dark-ish gray sand, and very small chunks of white plastic.

My water filter is also identical to yours. Can you tell me where you buy replacements? Is there a part number?

I bought two at Home Depot.
They are NOT the real expensive ones but they must have a hole all the way thru the center. I believe they cost $9 for two.
I believe this is them LINK
