Leaking Water from Toilet Base

I am having a problem with water leaking around the base of my Model 210 Sealand toilet. Seems like it only does this when I use the toilet and not my wife and it is only in one of the toilets in our camper -we have two. I assume it is a bad seal at the flange mounting to the floor. My question is does this require a special seal or can I simply install one of the wax ring type used for household toilets? If it is a special seal does anyone know the part number I need and best place to buy it??

It will have a rubber seal. You will want to take the base cover off to find the model number. Flush the toilet with the cover off to see where the leak is coming from.

Thanks, it is a Dometic Sealand Model 210 and it seems to be leaking from the rear of the toilet at the floor level. Seems to be weight related as it doesn't leak when my DW uses it, says something about our weights I guess, huh? Anyway, do you replace the rubber seal the same way as you would replace a wax ring in an indoor toilet, in other words does it require setting? Also, where do I buy this??

I've heard of #12 causing the same problem you're explaining. Try tightening the metal band.

The seal is a rubber gasket, no setting like a house toilet.

Here is the parts list with a diagram. Parts List The band Clifftall referred to is #3 in red.

I would Google "Dometic Sealand Model 210" for a supplier in your area. Parts were easy to find for my 510 model.

Fixed the problem by tightening the band around the base of the toilet and tightening the toilet to the floor flange
