Let's talk about toilets.

Anyone having issues with toilet not holding some water after flushing?

Now before you jump at the ball gasket in there. I have replaced it already and still have the issue. When I took it apart I did not notice any sharp edges or rough areas on the ball valve. This has been an issue since I bought the unit.

the thing works but it does leak some gas back into the coach. We typically leave the bath fan on low all the time. It is an annoyance.

Has anyone replaced with alternate throne. If so what model and manufacturer did you change to and did you have any mods that had to be accomplished to make the replacement work.

2018 DX3 TS

I will be contacting Dynamax but just looking for any suggestions.

Thanks

Personally I don’t see this as a Dynamax issue as much as the toilet manufacturer.

Is it a Thetford or Dometic?
What model number?

Ours will do that unless we let the valve slam shut.

I use a thetford seal conditioner. Seems to help. Would love an alternate toilet option, but right now it seems to help.

I agree that it is the toilet manuf. that is the warranty source. However, Dynamax is the builder of the MH. If Dynamax is not aware of issues with their build then they will just keep building as is. Not always the best over time. By talking with them I may find that there has been past issues and they have moved to something else. I would have a choice to move up to the "new configuration" or just replace with same. They may also have other/better suggestions. (They see a lot more units than mine). Personally I really don't care if it is warranty or not.

I think it is an Aqua Magic II. Thetford??

We had that issue as well, and the advice we got on this forum was as houstonstroker mentioned above - let the ball slam closed. I was prepared to replace the ball as well, but after we started to let it close with some force we’ve had zero issues. To me it’s counterintuitive and something I’d normally get onto our girls for doing, but, in this case, it works.

Check the pivot points of the shutter. Mine wouldn’t hold water and one of the pivot points had come out of its recess and I had to reset it.

Try one of the macerator toilets BC puts in the I5? I like it. It's called the: Tecma Silence Plus

^this

We've had zero problems since letting the ball "snap" into place. Before that it was very hit or miss.

Only toilet swap I've seen is for composting but that's a whole nother ball of wax

Like the slam suggestion, we merely pull up on the pedal when this happens and that has stopped the seeping.
