Thetford Aqua-Magic Style Plus toilet problems

I have a Thetford Aqua-Magic Style Plus toilet in my 2011 Newmar that has always had problems holding water above the waste ball, has had two waste balls break, and has had a water valve drive arm break. All this with 104 days of camping. I'm torn between continuing to repair it or replace it with another brand, like Sealand. Any similiar experiences out there?

I have to answer to your problem, and this is because I was having the same issue the first couple of years RVing. The problem is friction between the toilet seal and the dome.

Plumbers Silicone Grease. Can be bought at f.x. Lowes

Use nothing else, because other stuff may cause damage to your seal.

Direction of use:

Turn off the water to the toilet.
Put on a thin latex glove.
Find a peg and put it on your nose.
Step on the pedal like you do when you dump.
Stick finger in the silicone and rub the black seal where this seals to the dome.
You could also apply some to the dome if you like.
Turn water back on.
Remove glove and nose peg.
Pad yourself on the back, because job is now done.

Try this - I know it works. This would normally last us roughly 2 month of constant use, but since to job is small and easy it's not to bad. Just do it again.

Great. Thank you very much. I'll take your advice and hope I get longer service from the unit between break-downs.
