Tecma Toilet water level

I posted this question in the RV Systems and Appliances but have gotten no helpful responses so decided to ask here since so many of us CC owners have the Tecma.

My Tecma toilet is not holding the proper static water level. The manual says the factory setting is 1/2" above the top of the bowl outlet. The bowl does fill to that level after a flush but it then slowly drops to about 1/4" below the top of bowl outlet. I have read the manual thoroughly and there is no reference to this issue. I suspect a leaking check valve or something similar. I have done the manual water level adjustment but it always drops no matter how full I adjust.

Looking for suggestions from anyone who has had similar issue.

Remove the screws in the wood cover behind the toilet and pull up on the hose..it had worked down and let's the water escape.

OK, that is my plan. I called Thetford today and they seemed stumped at first, put me on hold, then finally told me the same thing. The rep suggested I might use a zip tie to hole the 'J' pipe up a bit.

From the pic in the manual there seems to be a couple of stainless clamps on that pipe. Do I need to loosen either of those or just pull up on the thing and hope it stays?

It has been awhile since I did mine. I. Think when you get the cover off you will see what needs to be done.
