I may take it out Sat. The lithium spray definitely helped, it will now shut the water off by itself, it just takes about 5 seconds to shut off completely. Would not take it to a dealer or Camping World, would rather do it myself and know it was done correctly and not have something else messed up.

This one holds water just fine, in fact, you can put about a cup of water in it and it is still in there 4 or 5 days later, so it is not the flapper or ball valve.

Vince, I also have a Dometic. I Had to replace the blade seal on a year and one half toilet. The foot pedal would stick open. I called Dometic and they sent me a new blade seal at no charge. I still have to lube the new seal about every third camp-out because it sticks. JUNK !!!!!

I used an liberal amount of plumbers silicon grease to the full face of the gasket. Its lasted probably a year already. Water off, valve wide open, grease the heck out of it allow to "soak" in a bit.

Water continue----------

Water continues to run for about 3-5 seconds after releasing the flush pedal to place some water in the bowel so it will not be "DRY", at least mine does and always has.

If all else fails, call 1-800-521-3032 When you call, have available:

Your Name and address
The toilet model and code from ID label
The problem/reason for claim.
proof of date of purchase.


Good luck

Evidently the lithium grease has worked its magic as the pedal is working just fine now. Water continues to run for 2-3 seconds and puts about 2" of water in the bottom and shuts off just like it did when we got the trailer new.
