Make sure to rinse the black water tank very well. Little things get stuck on the full sensors and give false readings. We flush the heck out of the black tank when packing up and leave about a gallon of fresh water in the tank along with the nice smelling additives. When you drive along it sloshes around to keep the tank clean.

Received my new 300 Dometic toilet on Friday. Installed it on Sunday afternoon in about 30 minutes. Smell seems to be gone, and this one will actually hold water in the bowl. Headed to Myrtle Beach in a couple of days for a week. Time will tell, but I think the problem is solved.

Use the GEO method of treating the black tank. Do a search on this forum for the discussion, or do a Google search on it. But most opinions are that it is what works best, maybe not in every case, but in the majority.

I have read the 300s have a faulty seal as others mentioned. I just purchased a new TT and ours is a 300, I contacted Dometc regarding what I have been reading and sent them my serial number they replied quickly and said the problem was fixed at some point, so they are aknowleding the issue and were fast to respond. I would contact them as others indicated they were easy and quick to repalce them.

My dealer just replaced our 300 with a 310 ceramic bowl. The flap valve was loose on ours. Roskopfs RV in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin has been great so far.

My 2014 V-Lite (bought new in July 2014) was in for several small warranty items. The dealer said they had never heard of the stinky toilet problem. They tried to blame it on the way I treat the black tank (dump, black flush, then chemical pack and 2 gallons of water). They backed off when I explained this was my 4th year of RVing and I'd never had an odor problem before. They said they couldn't do anything because it wasn't leaking. When I told them about all that I had read on here, they still weren't convinced.

I came back to the forums and re-read that you just need to call Dometic with the model and serial number. I passed that on to the dealer and they called Dometic. Dometic told my dealer that my 310 wasn't part of the original problem model, but they were starting to get calls about them, too. So, they're sending a new toilet to the dealer overnight.

The dealer thanked me for solving the problem. I thank y'all for the information! I hope this info can help someone else.

The dealers should take a few moments from there money gouging days and read up on their products.. My dealer was told several times about the domestic issue even though I fixed it myself. . They still have no idea.
