Toilet still leaking from vacuum

Does anyone else have this continued problem of the vacuum breaker failure? Every time I flush a spit of water comes out the rear.

I received a new vacuum breaker, installed it and it still happens!

I keep a towel behind the toilet on a 2014... sad.

Dometic toilet

Call Diane at Dometic and see what they can do for you. They just might surprise you.

Just think it should never happen.

When mine leaked I did a fix while camping - stuck a small rubber disc (actually a cupboard door rubber bumper, large) over the hole atop the valve at the back of the toilet through which the water spurted. It fixed the problem and the flushing action was never diminished at all. My toilet was a Thetford and worked better than the Dometic that is in the 27RLWS - the only 'appliance' that I will change out in this trailer one of these days.

Mine did it during city pressure pit stops. Don't know if its a water pressure thingy but it stopped.

I'm experiencing the same issue. We have a 2014 Rockwood Ultralite 5'er, and the John worked fine for 2 seasons. This year, I had to replace the flush valve due to a pin hole in it, and now the vacuum breaker is spitting. I notice that if you release the flush pedal slowly, it won't do it, but if you let up on the pedal quickly you get a real good spit.
I've been winterizing by blowing out the lines, and suspect a bit of water must have been left behind and caused these problems. Next year, I'm pumping in antifreeze for sure.
Does anyone have a contact number for Diane at Dometic?
