I'm very happy with how Dometic has resolved this issue for me!

I have a 2014 Shamrock 23ikss. After only the first night of camping, my wife and I noticed the foul odor from the bathroom. A quick search online brought me to this forum thread. I contacted Dometic on a Monday. On Thursday, I had a new series 300 toilet at my doorstep, apparently they fixed the seal so that the problem shouldn't occur again. I carefully removed my original 300 toilet from my camper. Outside, from the rear of the unit, I could see liquid sewage that had collected on the inside. Then as I unboxed the new 300, I was very disappointed to find that it was damaged. The two plastic parts at the top of the bowl of toilet were split. It appears they are glued and snapped together and one of the two screws in the rear of the unit had been stripped.

I immediately contacted Dometic on the phone (Friday morning) . They were very understanding and agreed to send me another new unit, this time a series 310.

When I saw QuietTimes post above regarding the size difference between the two models I became concerned that the 310 may not work for me. It just arrived this afternoon (Tuesday) and.... it fits! I am very pleased with the fit finish and flush of the series 310. Thank you Dometic.

To reiterate - the 310 fits fine in a 23ikss.

So for those with the "revised" 300 can you see a difference between the old 300 and the revised 300?

NOT feasible to place a hood over the solar panel, every time you park vehicle in storage. Thanks
Installed solar exhaust fan. Had immediate loud vibration inside RV. Could not quiet unit. Placed in trash can and ate the $32.00 cost. I would not recommend the unit, due to the noise issue.

Just wanted to say thank you for sharing this info!! Just picked up my FR Cherokee and had used just one day and was already noticing an smell. Looked up the models to find both my toilets are 300's. New ones are in the way!!

Thanks for this post, I had the "stinky" problem with the 300 model. Called the company and a new 310 on the way. Great service from the company.

Went in camper for the first time in a few weeks and talk about a funky bathroom. Thought I stuck my head in a public urinal. Talked to Heidi and should have the upgraded 300 middle of next week. Thanks

I'm having the same problem with my Dometic 300 toilet. I contacted Dometic and was told to contact the manufacturer too. Can you give me Diane's phone number or email too! I would really like to take care of this odor problem before the winter. Thanks for your help with this.
