travler toilet leaking

Have a Traveler toilet in an 03 Newmar. Issue is it does not hold water in the bowl, but problem is intermittent. Bought a rebuild kit over winter because last fall it would not hold water at all, slow leak. This spring it seemed to be working fine, now this week, 6/20, it started leaking again, but not all the time. Anyone have same or similar experience?

They are super sensitive to the smallest piece of anything at the black gasket. I carry a good brush(often recycle my dish scrapper brush) and when the water stops holding I hold the pedal to the metal and brush with vigor then flush and rinse extra well. This always seems to clear the unseen particle.

Try to put more water in the bowl. Ours will leak out if we just have an inch or so of water on top of the ball. When we fill the bowl with several inches of water it holds. I'm guessing the added water weight causes the gasket to seal. We also just replaced the seal and experience this problem.

Sometimes if I left it without water the seal dried out. A service manager at Campiing World told me to use regular Vasoline petrolium jelly (instead of what they sold!!!!!). It worked fine for about a year then I re-did it and it worked well. Just shut off the water put on a plastic glove or "doggy bag" and apply it to the seal.

Wheel bearing grease works the best" I've tried vasoline and it just doesn't last; wheel bearing grease won't desolve; it's a little messer but will last a long time.

Never leave your boil without water in it; the gasket will dry up in no time.

Ours is like Vegasdan's - seems to want to have a couple inches of water in it before it stays in place.
