Toilet intake leak...most likely the warranty-busting bad winterization chestnut

Howdy All,

I’m second owner of a 2014 2101FBS, bought it at auction so no way to know it’s maintenance history. This last weekend, attempted to use the pressurized water system, everything worked fine except for a hissing leak on the “y” fitting where the intake water and flush water connect (see photo, sorry it’s upside-down). I did get most of the documentation in the sale, including the toilet warranty leaflet that featured a photo of what appears to be my problem child, with a warning in caps and bold, “DAMAGE TO THIS PART INDICATES IMPROPER WINTERIZATION AND THUS VOIDS THE WARRANTY “. I may be paraphrasing a tetch but that’s the gist of it. The warranty issue is moot, but interesting that my part appears to be a common weak link.

So, okay, assuming I need to replace this piece, exactly how do I get to it? I don’t see any obvious way to get the “shroud” around the bowl-base off to allow access to the part. I’m 6’2” and 270 lbs so this looks like it’s going to be sooooo fun to work on.

And once I do get to the situation, do I really need to use that variety of single-use hose clamp on the flush hose connection? I have had a lot of bad luck with those in the past.

Love some guidance, thanks guys n gals.

Geoff

Disregard my cry for help, folks, I muddled through and fingered it out. I’m now an authority on replacing Dometic 310 toilet valves—hit me up if you’ve got a geyser in the potty and you’re as clueless as I was days ago! Cheers!

Glad you got it fixed. It is always good to learn how to do it, glad you have. Good work.

Thanks! Day 2 and not a drop. And now that the system is closed, I could finally test the hot water...and it works! Woo hoo! Hollywood, Baby!

Welcome to the DIY Club. After a year or so, you'll be an authority on a lot more than toilet valves. And be thankful that you have the inclination to DIY. Can you imagine spending $100+/hr to have things like this fixed?
