How to Deal With the Dometic 300 Toilet Recall
If you have a Dometic 300 toilet in your RV, you may find that a foul smell is making your freewheeling travel less fun than you expected. This popular RV toilet has a problem with an internal seal that causes sewage to leak back up into the bowl. The resulting odor is not only unpleasant, but the leak can also damage the floor of your vehicle. If this is the case, you're going to have to deal with the Dometic 300 toilet recall.
Replacing the defective toilet is the obvious choice, but unfortunately, the has been going on for over six years. At this point, service representatives don't seem to agree on what the company is prepared to do to make the situation right. But you don't have to spend hours on the phone trying to get a straight answer. DoNotPay can cut through the work and get you a solution quickly.
How Do I Make a Claim for the Dometic 300 Toilet Recall?
To claim a , follow these steps:
- Find your toilet's model number and serial number. This will be on a sticker at the back of the toilet, right under the water valve.
- Dometic hasn't been clear about which serial numbers are recalled, but the fixed model of the toilet will have a serial number that starts with 04. If your toilet has a serial number that starts with a different number, it may be included in the recall.
- Call the Dometic Service Center at 800-321-9885 between the hours of 8:00 AM and 4:30 PM (ET).
- The service representative should be able to help you order a functioning replacement model or an upgrade to a 310 or 320 model for a fee. They will instruct you to discard the defective toilet.
Some people have reported having problems getting help when they call the service center. If you don't get a helpful representative on the first try, it's worth your time to call back at another time. If you cannot get a satisfactory response from the company, the dealership that you bought your RV from may be able to help.
Why Is There a Dometic 300 Toilet Recall?
When the 300 series Dometic toilet was manufactured, it was built with the upper and lower compartments sealed internally. However, this seal doesn't seem to work much of the time, and when it separates, waste seeps back up into the toilet.
Because the seal is internal, it's not something the consumer can fix on their own. It must be replaced.
Will I Get a New Toilet Right Away?
People have reported differing reactions when they call customer service. Some representatives insist that it's a warranty problem, and if it's been more than two years from the original date of purchase, the warranty is no longer valid. It's important not to let the problem go very long, because the leak can damage the floor around the toilet, and Dometic refuses responsibility for that repair.
The dealership that sold you the RV may help you if you're having problems getting a satisfactory result from Dometic. Of course, that's one more office to deal with, so there are no guarantees you'll get help from them either.
