Drip,drip,drip

The toilet has a brass nut on a valve on the bottom of the flushing mechanism that constantly drips. I have tightened it until I chickened out. Any suggestions?
Thanks

Make and model of toilet may help broaden the group of members who might venture a reply.

Sounds like your water valve is leaking and needs to be replaced before the leak causes damage. It is easy to replace and all RV dealers keep them in stock.

Turn off the water---back the nut completely off then take a look. Maybe a washer? A flange? split tubing? or the leaky valve, but with the nut off you may be able to see the problem clearly.

Thanks guys: I'll give it a try.

George Z: It's a Sealand by Dometic. Standard on all Alpine Coachs.

Chris:

I happen to have a new valve replacement kit. It's yours if you'd like it. I changed to a Concerto toilet with electronic flush and don't see ever using the valve kit.

Chris, it's the water valve, follow advice and change it, not hard, most rv dealers can get it and then can change it too.

Thanks everyone for your help. Special thanks to Take Pride for sending me the valve I needed. Thank you very much Mr. Pride, you are a scholar and a gentleman.
