2014 Cherokee 254Q - Sewer Smell Inside

Ok folks, never had this issue before. Black tank is a clean as I can get it, I had a Tornado installed when I bought it and even flushed out with a flexible wand a couple days back, it still smells like a rest room inside, then I noticed on the bathroom medicine cabinet that the unit is equipped with a 360 siphon fume extractor. (360 Products Inc) Well looking at their web site and the vent on my roof they look nothing alike. Has anyone heard of this and does it work?

any help is appreciated.

Check the toilet for manufaturer name and model number. It should be posted on a label on the side/lower area or check the rear with a mirror. If you have this make/model, it has a known history of having a seam leak. Call Dometic if you have this unit and they will correct the issue. Otherwise, no recommendations or thoughts on this issue.+

Thanks for the reply, forgot to mention at first smell, I didn't have any water in the bowl and the dealer told me that was the issue as water would keep the smell from coming around the seal, kinda made sense as your home toilet has water in it, so I took some water out and dumped it in the bowl and it did seem to knock down the odor somewhat but not enough as to not smell something.

Seen a couple threads on this. Most of the folks say the toilet is shipped to them and I guess they are installing, how does this affect warranty?

Final note, I contacted Dometic and gave them my serial number and sure enough it's a defective toilet and they are sending me a replacement due to arrive next Wednesday. If nothing else their customer support is the best. According to spokesperson the warranty is not affected by installing yourself.

Thanks to all for the valuable information.

A little late now, but I wasn't interested in tackling the install myself. I had Dometic ship the toilet directly to an authorized service center and they installed it in a day.

My dealer is over an hour away. Someone posted it only took around 30 minutes to install, so figured I would do it myself. Now the disposal of the old one will be the next issue.

Thanks again.

Got the new toilet and installed today, got a major problem as I broke the water fitting screwing it on the toilet. Is this something I can repair myself? The water hose does not come out of the floor anymore than already exposed, I can't win for losing and have a trip in 2 weeks. I applied some glue but can't imagine that will do anything.
