Leaking Dometic Toilet

Found water on the bathroom floor this morning coming from the toilet. Fortunately itís fresh water. Took the west off and discovered itís coming from an area right behind the seat attachment. When we step on the pedal to put water in the bowl it comes out of that the highest point behind the seat. Seems to be the water supply. Any suggestions. NO ONE can get us in for a month.

You most likely have a Dometic Model 310 toilet. Check this on the sticker on the base below the foot flusher. It's hard to see. Use your phone and take a picture of the sticker.

Once you have determined the model number, look on-line to see how it is configured. The repair should be fairly easy. You may possibly need a new flush valve for about $10. There are many You-Tubes telling you how to do this.

If you have the Airstream dealer do this, it will probably end up costing you the price of two new toilets.

And if you need to replace the toilet, it is an easy DIY effort. Takes as much time to unbox and prep as to install it.

It was the water valve when we had a similar problem.

Quite easy to install.

This is true. I just priced a brand new Dometic 310. It is $205 on Amazon with free shipping. I know because I have priced them and am about to order one for my 2015 25FB.

The dealer may be able to squeeze you in a month from now, keep your Airstream for two months, and charge you $400.00 to fix your old toilet.

First toilet delivered from Amazon had a broken hinge. Second toilet delivered from Amazon had a broken hinge but in a different place. Fortunately, my laziness outsmarted poor packaging as I had not returned the first toilet yet. Between the two toilets I could assemble a single perfect toilet. I assembled the broken parts into a single imperfect toilet and shipped the mess back to Amazon.

That's a funny story. I love it!. If mine arrives broken, I will not be in a rush to send the broken one back
