I would have taken the offer of the 310 but I was afraid of the offset difference from the wall.

I hear that, I was thinking the same thing.......the extra inch and a half with the 310 puts the top of the toilet that much closet to the back wall, however the 310 fit the 300 base on the floor, and the water supply, perfectly, no alterations needed. Anyways, the main thing is we have a toilet that works properly!

Got my upgraded 300 the other day. Waiting for the snow lo melt and install it on Friday night after work. The weather here has been from the low 30's to subzero temps. We are having a heat wave this weekend (50's) so it's a great time to spent some time at the campground.

310 issue

Just to throw my 2 cents in. We had the Dometic 310 for a couple years and were fighting the odor issues off and on the entire time. It came to a head on our last trip. The 310 is two piece and the base and bowl were separating, this coupled with urine getting trapped inside the toilet was causing the smell. I removed the toilet, not a pleasant experience, but could not tighten the two pieces. We had to replace the toilet and have had no odor issues to date.

I forgot to follow up on my previous post. Took about 20 minutes to install. Was out camping last weekend and all was well. Was at the 12 hours of Sebring race a few weeks back and our potty was a five gallon bucket with a luggable Loo seat. The Dometic 300 is a definite upgrade. Lol. Opted not to get the 310 due to fit issues.

Glad to help out but the credit goes to other thread folks who got me pointed in the right direction. I have to say the creaking and squeaking of the plastic on plastic when your lower end is firmly seated is a issue but it's not like your there for too long. Gotta make sure you have plenty of Aqua Chem in there too not to mention a good rinse when you get the rig packed up. I bought one of those clear back flush tubes to hook up to the sewer line and attach a those to it (not your white hose). I have seen a few use their fresh water hoses and it makes me cringe. Get one of those flex hoses that shrinks when you turn off the water. Packs up real good. There is nothing like a fresh black water tank to start your camping experience!

I appreciate the information on the toilet. We are on the road up the ALCAN and had the same issue with a toilet that smelled like an outhouse. I called Dometic, and they are shipping one to Whitehorse, YT and I will install it there.

I joined this forum because I am having the same problem with my Dometic 300 toilet. I bought my 2013 puma 26RLSS in February 2013 . Two days later the smell was there and I could watch the dirty water slowly seep into the bowl. I told the dealer about it and their response was I didn't know what I was talking about. I broke my arm a few days latter and that was the end of my RV days that summer. I took out my RV last week same problem. I started researching myself and found this forum. I called Dometic today and sent a email to their customer service. I did not get the Same response that the others on this forum got. Told me I need to take it back to the dealer(the ones who think I'm an idiot ) Any help?
