Did you check the back of the toilet for a water leak at the pipe connection, might be loose, it is screwed on.

Almost forgot, turn the water pump on while checking for leaks, gotta pressurize the lines

Can you see the area behind the potty? Can you see where the water line comes out (i.e. from the floor or the wall)?

Its possible there is a fitting that is leaking in the hollow space under the "step", or you might have an internal leak in the toilet itself, or it could be that the leak is elsewhere and the water just finds an easy path out that way.

With no faucets turned on, does your water pump cycle on and off? That indicates a leak in the water lines somewhere. If you do NOT hear the pump cycling, its possible that the toilet itself is leaking around the floor flange (*ick*) when flushing.

First, look carefully in the cabinets and under the shower, inside the sewer bay and so on for leaks. If you don't find any, you will have to pull the toilet to check it, probably.

If it's a Valterra toilet, and I'm sure it is, be sure to check the flush valve up under the back of the toilet.
These are sometimes overlooked when winterizing and will burst do to freezing of water left in the actual valve itself (Don't ask me how I know).
Anyway, if it's not a loose connection or a flange leak, that's most likely the culprit. If so it will require removing the toilet to replace it, unless you are some sort of contortionist and can get in behind there and swap it out which is unlikely.
Good luck and I hope it's an easy fix for ya!

I had the very same thing happen to my Class C. There is a "T" in the water line under the step. In mine the "T" had cracked and was leaking. It would soak the floor in front of the toilet but didn't smell or look like "toilet water". I had to tear out the front of the "step" to get to the pipe. It wasn't difficult to fix but required some distruction. If you don't find any other possibility, I would think this is your option. Good Luck.
