Is it a Thetford? If so, it may be leaking at the ball valve/seal in the toilet. If you have a strong urine smell it is probably a Thetford. Mine was designed with large pockets at each corner that held the water from the bowl as it leaked. It eventually smelled to high heaven before I figured out what was going on.

If it's the Thetford I would replace it with a Dometic. If not, or if it is, look for a leak around the valve/the seal in the bowl. The Thetford has two screws/bolts at the very back of the bowl (hard to see) that can come loose and let the seal leak.

A known problem with Dometic is a slow leak from bowl to base and not noticed until base fills. Call Dometic and they will send a replacement, at least they did in the past.

We had the same problem with our Dometic. I contacted them and they mailed me a new one. They were very easy to deal with.
