Had experienced some uriney smells from the toilet for a while but always thought that this was in-between (daily) toilet bowl cleansing. Had also noted some fluid leakage on top of the cassette as I took it out to empty.
Until I read an article recently by another Burstner owner who has been experiencing similar issues, I had assumed that this was minor and not an issue. I now rhink otherwise!
Personally I believe that the toilet cassette opening is not wide enough to cover all of the opening in the bowl.
Has anyone else the same problem?
Thanks

The toilet will not be unique to your burstner. They are made by Thetford and fitted to just about every motorhome made. It may be that the cassette to bowl seal is past its best.

I agree, no problems in our Burstner.

There is fluid on top of the opening flap, now and again, when I empty it but that is a result of the flap being closed before all the flush water has drained and easily solved by opening and closing the flap.

Find the model number of casette and search ebay for a fresh up kit
You get a new cassette unit and toilet lid assemble for about £70 or so
Plus you then have spare unit

Our s did same it was top flap seal gone it was a small fortune for a new one and our flap opening pin had failed once so I bought a new one job sorted

I know graham I have done that and it worked great on old one
But our cassette was a batterd and the opening flap was in a bad state so I asked the money manager for 70 quid and she said yes now that don't happen too often
Anyway I am down in sarens yard on riverside heating on full blast cooking my tea and can't be arsed going out its too cold
It's a sad life
But it could be worse I could be in bluebell drunk again

My loo was leaking and liquid was laying in tray underneath and smelling like yours.It was a 2010 model van. I had a word with thetford who sent me the complete new centre of the cassette. It had a higher seal so made a better contact, free mod.

In that case, Peter, I would have done the same :)

You should have said you were at the Riverside - you could have got a taxi to the Coronation and bought me a pint :D

I found once the cassette flanges had not engaged with the underside of the bowl correctly. Now have to withdraw the magnetic sliding cover to check engagement when replacing the cassette.
