I have the above installed in my Rapido V55 cqmpervan which is 9 months old and with 16,000 Kms on the clock. we have had no problems until our last trip. the cassette was 2/3rds full and we travelled over uneven roads in the montains in Italy for the morning. when we got to a service point and i took the cassette out to empty; it had leaked into the bakc channel in the cassette compartment.
there was no evidence of leks, damage or any other thing that could explain this leak. we cleaned, disinfected (repeatedly) and the odour has now gone away. lthough we qere very careful for the rest of the trip and checked frequently under various conditions, it did not reoccur.
has anyone else xperienced htis and is there an explanation?
First, while it was not full, we did go thorugh various hilly roads and they were not the best surfaces. theefore, deduce that, while hte cassette is good, it is not completely sealed so combinaiton of full(ish) and rocky drive, could cause leaks!
just glad it did not build up the pressure resulting in blow back!!!!
thanks for advice regarding replacement seal. However, it is relartively new and the seal is in perfect condition. I usually check at end of each trip and put silicone grease on it to keep it supple (in the toilet manual as recommended).
It seems to be a useful lesson; do not travel on mountaion/uneven roads when the toilet cassette is full (or try and open at very high altitudes!)!
the dealer is going to check it out in December as well so, if any further information, will share it with you all.
the dealer looked at the problem and replaced the toilet fittings that connect the toilet to the cassette. it had been fitted badly and was not connecting correctly thus allowing leakage when on the move.
that said, as the winter has arrived, we have not yet tested it fully but seems to be OK.
