Toilet Leak?

I have a 2002 Nomad travel trailer with a rear bath. My central heat vent is located between the toilet and the shower. Couple of months ago replaced toilet with the Aqua V. I have recently noticed small amount of water in the floor vent and upon investigating the water is coming from the toilet side. No other leaks around the toilet on the floor or behind the toilet just trickle in the vent......question is what could be leaking on the toilet and what to check out first. I am assuming I will have to remove the toilet.......Any answers appreciated
Thanks

If the toilet was recently replaced it is likely a seal at the base that has not sealed. If there are bolts/screws holding the toilet down to the floor, you can try tightening them a couple of turns each. Wait for a day or two and check your leak spot for progress. If you get some improvement you can tighten a couple more turns, but there is a limit so if the leak persists after the first try and does not improve on the second look elsewhere. Anything that was disturbed during the swap. Pipe connections can be checked quickly with a toilet paper wipe.

Thanks, I have done all that but there is still water seeping into the vent from under the floor/toilet. No water found around toilet or on the lines in the back. I
may have to have someone come check it out. Was hoping I could fix it myself
Thank you

Your right, there is nothing left to do now but to lift the toilet and check/replace the seal. It's unlikely for a seal not to work, but it does happen.

Update

Well, it turns out was not the toilet. After having the repairman come out twice checking all areas known to leak and not finding any except a small drip at corner of area where heater was decided to replace water heater. Come to find out that was it.
