What did you put it in? I bought a 320 thinking it would fit, but it did not. I have a friend with a 2109S that we believe it will fit in. I had to go with the 310. It's unfortunate because the 320 is really nice.

Picked up the warranty replacement 310 yesterday and installed it this morning. It is infinitely better than the 300, I don't understand why they still produce the plastic bowls.

When I took the 300 off today it had already accumulated a bit of waste in the cavity after cleaning it out and siliconing the seals last week.

Thanks to Dometic for shipping out the replacement to meet us mid-trip, but it doesn't make up for supplying a flawed design in the first place.

If Dometic didn't make them, RV manufacturers would buy the cheaper plastic version from Thetford.

That doesn't explain why Dometic still makes defective plastic bowls.

Specs are available online somewhere. You can know for sure if it will fit, with or without modification, before he pays for it.

Is there a definitive way to tell if you have a 300 vs a 310?

Yes. It is on model/serial number sticker, and it is on your build sheet. And if it's and all plastic toilet, no ceramic.

The 300 has a hollow plastic bowl that flexes and creaks when you sit on it, the 310 has a solid ceramic bowl that is silent when you sit on it.

Has anyone ever added a sprayer rinse hose (like on the kitchen sink) to one of these toilets? Thanks.

The warranty replacement 310 that Dometic just sent me at no cost has a sprayer rinse hose.

Sure. There are many threads about adding a sprayer and as mentioned in the previous post, some model toilets come with them or can be added as an option.

I looked at it when I purchased a new toilet but discovered the water to the sprayer is only on when the flush lever is stepped on. Also adds one more hose to winterize.

yes, there is a sticker on the base of the toilet that lists model and serial number

Domestic toilet 300 replacemenr

After owning my Forest River Rockwood Ultra Lite for 2 years we got tired of the smelly bathroom. I tried all the fixes, tightening down, water treatments, cleaning longer and different pods and powders. I contacted Dometic and a replacement is on back order but should arrive in two to three weeks. I’ll keep everyone posted.

I believe they’re sending a 310 but they just said a replacement is being sent.

You will be quite pleased with any replacement over the 300

I believe the replacement will be another 300 but the newer generation without the design flaw. The upgrade to the 310 is an additional $75. I hope I am wrong, we upgraded to the 310 after a similar issue, so much nicer.

I don't believe there is a newer generation without the design flaw. Ours was is a 2021 trailer and it had the same old problem.
