Good advice.
I just replaced the seal on my 320 (plastic bowl) this morning and the instructions called for silicone grease. Don't use Vaseline or any other petroleum product. I also cleaned the ball surface with spray silicone. It's a good solvent as well as a slick 'em up.

Contact Dometic, I kept having the same issue with my 310 in my 2010 Silverback 29RE. Replaced very expensive gasket and tried using recommended lubricants but would not stop leaking.
So I contacted Dometic to see if they had a fix and was told they would have replaced the toilet for free but I waited to long (more than 2 years) before I contacted them with the problem! So I replaced the toilet with a different brand.

They sent my dealer a gasket for free and allowed a half-hour labor. They stand behind their products.

I have used vinegar in our toilet many times because of the water in Arizona to clean the minerals off of the rubber seal. I soak the entire water system each summer with a mix of 7 gallons of vinegar and same amount of water . Sit for 3 days and drain the tank and wh and flush all system until the water is clear and no odor of vinegar.

Get some plumbers grease from home depot but make sure you get the silicone grease and NOT the petroleum variety. Put a small amount on the gasket and that should allow it to hold water. That silicone grease also works great on the the dump valves.
