I haven't heard of an electric toilet.
Is an "electric toilet" a vacuflush system?

It would help if you would post the brand and model of the toilet. That would help readers with the same type answer your question. Information about level adjustment may be found on line or in your user's manual.

Not necessarily. The Thetford Tecma is a macerator type toilet, not a vacuum flush. The Thetford has a two button control panel however.

How much is "too much". Is there any way to measure it? Is it staying on for more than 20 seconds? Be careful adjusting. You do need water in the black tank or you could get dumping problems. Most people use too little water when flushing their toilet and get problems.

The previous owner installed an adjustment potentiometer on the toilet control panel in our Mandalay. I can control the water used. Very handy. I'll try to get a pic next time I'm at the coach.

Thetford TEMCA used numerous control panels over the years......

Your 'one button' design is an early/entry level control panel. It is preset and not adjustable (pre April 2006 part number 36082)

A 2 button control panel was used (April 2006 to present part number 36387)
Not sure if interchangeable
Contact Thetford and inquire

If you have a valve in the water line going to the toilet, you can turn the valve down, limiting how much water the toilet will fill.

Here's the picture of the control panel in our Mandalay. The previous owner installed that adjusting knob which I can use to control how much water is used in the toilet.

I have the same controller. On the very back there is a small dial you can turn to increase or decrease water level in bowl when you flush.
