  1. try following my posting ( PapaT ) as we discovered Pink Fluids down under in the cassette housing click on this link below:- www.caravantalk.co.uk/community/topic/101514-dometic-toilet-is-this-progress/page/2/#comments
  2. Hello Everyone after consulting with my dealer to pursue a warranty claim on my behalf, only to come back yesterday 27 Jan 20 with a statement that Coachman will not replace the dometic toilet under warranty. I stood my ground an d ask WHY?. Dealer stated due to wear & Tear and we broke it with rough cleaning????. I strong email went back to dealer with my thoughts to explain the issues we experienced, and I received a call stating that Dometic was the ones that rejected the claim not coachman. and now Dometic have changed their mind and will supply a replacement toilet FOC, but not the labour cost. Dealer also stated that Coachman will honour the labour costs. so all good in the end. just await delivery of new toilet, and I will arrange service at same time. Good Result for us. PapaT

  8. Has anybody experienced this problem that we have. is it possible to acquire a replacement elbow discharge part ?. and next question is how do you gain access to detach the flush pipe from the broken elbow bend within the wc bowl rim?. appreciate any help possible. PapaT
  9. Am keen to here of someone that may have experienced this problem, and how they resolved it PapaT
  10. Hi fellow Dometic Toilet owners. we have just experienced a failure with the toilet flushing discharge part within the wc bowl rim. It has broken away leaving the elbow & pipe within the bowl rim and the cover piece coming away in my hand. that now explains as to why we were experiencing, having pink solution water seep into the cassette area below, as each time the flush button was depressed, with this crack failure we never knew was there until the discharge part came away in my hand whilst cleaning around within the rim, So the big question now is, is the elbow two part available to buy, and how do you separate the upper bowl to get within the inner side of the bowl to connect the pipe to this elbow discharge part?.... appreciate any comments and help me to get this sorted. PapaT

  13. No I make sure all / any contents of flush tank is dropped into cassette and emptied to Chemical Toilet before moving off the pitch. PapaT
  14. Hi Everyone with Dometic Cassette a Toilet. Thats is our VIP 575 now approx 18mth old and I’ve notice a lot of water leakage down into the cassette locker, mainly the pink diluted water from the Flush tank. is this leaking between the seal and slider bar at bottom of toilet bowl, and is this due to lack of maintenance on my part. Ie use of OKS 1110 grease and the silicone spray etc to keep the seal fresh. Or does one have to remove and replace the seal annually? appreciate comments on how to stop this seepage down under, as its uncomfortable experience getting wet whilst emptying the cassette PapaT
  15. Hi All thanks for advice on this topic. And I would also advise you that my local caravan dealer ( although semi- retired ), helped me out and sourced the spare part from Coachman Parts and revived the replacement Roller Hanger within 1week. With my own skills, refitted the replacement roller hanger guide and all good to go again. PapaT
