Toilet in my 5th Wheel

Does anyone have any suggestions on ti fix the toilet in my rv?? I doesnt hold water in the tank, so it is always dry. It works just fine, just looking to see how to go about fixing possibly the seal.

How can it work fine if there is no water in it ? Step 1 don't use it under any circumstances ! If it does not hold water it will not hold liquid waste ! You need to drop belly and put water in to find your leak , then repair.Good luck .

Do you mean the bowl? If it is the bowl it might be the blade seal is dirty or bad outright. It's the rubber seal in the bottom of the bowl that the blade or in some ball slides under. You can clean around the lip of the seal with a scribe or something like one. I use one of those Gum Stimulators tools works great and can also be used to replace the seal. Just make sure it never gets mixed up with your dental tools

Depending on brand of toilet, a new seal is reasonable and takes less than 30 minutes to replace. Be sure to use lots of plumbers grease if you replace the seal.
