Dometic 310 part?

I was having a problem with water staying in my dometic 310. I tried the boiling water trick, then the plumbers putty. No joy. So then i took it down to a service repair place to replace seal. When they took top off the plastic “nuts” are one time use. They called dometic. Dometic said they “didnt know”. Im literally in the process to file a warranty claim on a toilet that is 3 momths old for “4” plastic nuts dometic says they dont have a part number on? What?

Anyone seen these and what the part number is??

If the flush ball seal was leaking and the bowl wouldn't retain water you don't need to disassemble anything. No tools are needed to replace the seal. The bowl is not to be separated from the base.


See page 2 of the attached manual.

Well, I guess the service repair folks just ate a repair and a new toilet. They are the ones that took it apart. Seems pretty clear to me in the manual! (which I never got because they were the ones who installed the 310 2 months ago!) Thanks for posting the manual for me.

The seal replacement was not in the manual, but a quick search was easy to find instructions...




yep... service folks just bought me a new toilet.

Show them the documents and politely ask what are they going to do.

Awesome info! I also thought the toilet needed to be removed and disassembled to replace the seal. I love this forum!

BTW, seals often dry up and I've been using Vaseline to lubricate the seal to stop water leakage. It has worked well to soften up the seal so it seals but replacement is better!

Thanks again!

This is the only video I can find where someone actually replaces the seal. It's a 300 model, but I suspect, identical to 310 and 320.

You should leave the bowl about 1/2 full of water so the seal doesn't dry out during the summer months.

During the the winter months when the camper is not being used or is in storage you should put at least a quart of RV antifreeze in the bowl. Just make sure the seal is clean and covered with AF, check for leakage and then close the toilet lid.

I have owned several TT with toilets over the years and never had to replace a seal.

My camper was 6 years old when I purchased it. The previous owners never used the toilet or any of the plumbing. They just slept in it while they were building their retirement home and had an outhouse on their property. I never replaced the dry leaking seal because my Vaseline trick worked most of the season.

I just now need to know where to get a new seal. Any suggestions?
