Dometic/Sealand 310 leak

I'm camping with someone who has a Heartland fifth wheel and their Dometic/Sealand 310 toilet is leaking between the pedestal and the bowl. Water, or whatever, drips out of the 'seam' between the two apparent parts.

I've looked at every parts diagram I could find online and nowhere does it show those two parts seperated.

It looks like there is only the one seal, the one at the bottom of the bowl.

It's so much fun working on someone else's toilet.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Those can NOT be separated "technically." I've done it before, but you can't get parts for the in between seal, AFAIK.

Thanks

The owner of the heartland called in a mobile repair technician. The seal is made out of neoprene and replacements are not available.

Getting the two parts apart takes removing the toilet, turning it upside down and removing the 4 nuts that hold it together.

I would have filled the seal area with silicon RTV or a hand made gasket and stuck it back together but they opted to replace the entire toilet.

Net cost was way more than expected but at least now they have a higher quality toilet that does not have any non replaceable parts.
