Obviously there are leaks.
When is it happening? When there is water pressure no matter what, only when flushing? Are you sure it's the toilet and not a water line in the area?

Or someone with a bad aim.

Sounds like a seal. Never could understand manufactures installing carpet in the bathroom

If tthe bowl isn't cracked then it has to be he seal. I agree carpet in the Bathroom is so unsanitary.

Several years ago I had a similar problem that drove me crazy. I pulled the toilet three times, replaced seals, replaced flush valve and lines. Nothing helped. Finally had a flat tire one day. While changing the tire, I noticed that the spare tire bracket was mounted to the rear wall of the camper --- with absolutely no sealant. Rain water, or even drainage from the air conditioner, was following the mount bolts through the wall and onto the floor behind the toilet.

Just pointing out that anytime water is found near the toilet, the toilet always gets the blame.

I am so glad we all have joke, because we all have been on the receiving side. Made me laugh despite the situation.

Am I the only one that has ever had the residual water in the bowl swig out while driving?
No leak... just water flying out of the bowl over a bump.

Ours is 31 years old and started leaking end of last season. This season we took it off and the flush valve was shot. Ordered a new one and installed our self and no more leaks and no more wet carpet.
We always sit when we use even for #1 and again no wet carpet
A good way to have a complete cleaning of toilet,used garden hose and Bleach White, looks brand new.

I had an older Southwind,I thought I had a leaking toilet gasket, new one didn't help. It turned out to be a crack in the elbow of the water heater. only leaked when hooked up to pressure water supply, & sprayed under the toilet flange. Not sure if your Bounder has similar proximity between toilet & water heater.

I had the flush valve leak on my 5er. I took it apart and greased it with marine grease. Never leaked again.

It was tricky to get the valve mechanism back together. I had to stand on my head and let it fall in a slot, then get the screw started.

What make and model toilet is it? You can download owner manuals to troubleshoot it.
