Dometic Rolls Out New Toilet Seat at Florida Show

Tue Jan 9, 2018

151553464929880.pngDometic will display a new toilet seat option to the RV aftermarket at the Tampa, Florida RV Supershow, January 17-21., the Elkhart, Indiana firm announced this week.

A company press release states that since the Dometic 310 Toilet was introduced several years ago, consumers have continued to suggested changes that have been made on the aftermarket version. For instance a standard slow-close wooden seat has been added to the 310, which is also available as a replacement for an existing plastic seat.

The company says the wood seat is much sturdier, and gives consumers what they said they wanted: the comfort of home. Additionally, the slow close seat allows for a quieter close and eliminates slamming and pinched fingers.

The efficiency of the toilet is also remarkable, using only one pint of water per flush. The ergonomic foot pedal allows users to press partially to add water, or press fully to flush.

Dometic’s 310 toilet is available in white or bone, tall or short, and can come with an optional hand spray.
