If debris got into the ball valve that allows fresh water in it could flood the bowl. Re-flushing may allow debris to be flushed through valve. Also lubricate any linkage from handle or pedal to prevent binding.

I'd guess your holding tank is full.

Sounds like your bowl fresh water valve may be leaking allowing water to enter the bowl. Ours will leak a little into the bowl if the campground water pressure is on the low side but after a short time it will completely close.

BTW, in you last post, it sounds like you may be leaving you black water tank dump valve open to keep your tank empty. If that is the case, you may end up with the dreaded 'pyramid' in the tank. It's a good idea to keep the tank valve closed until you need to dump...that way there's ample water to rinse out the solids/paper. We try to use extra water when flushing the bowl...well, unless we are dry camping. My apologies if you already knew that little tidbit. Bob

Yep, probably the water valve. Ours stuck once a couple of years ago and flooded the throne room floor. I played with it some, letting the lever pop back up to close quickly. Then put a bit of lube on the mechanism where the flush lever contacts the nylon/plastic round gizmo to push the valve open. We've never had another problem with it.
