I would have a certified propane mechanic look at all of the propane plumbing, before you start lighting up the different system. The leak around the toilet needs to be fixed before you start having floor rot. Get bid on doing repairs, you can save a lot of money if you take the time. Have them educate you to what maintance needs to be done on each system. Set goals and repair a little at a time and As soon as you get these problems worked out you should be go to go.

Sorry I didn't get back in time to see the CL pics (actually I checked a long time ago but haven't gotten around to catching up on forumy stuff). Did you sell it? Do you still have pics? Thanks!

I have not been on here for some time.

Did you get your issues worked out?

If you have any issue with an old toilet I recommend buying a new china bowl one this Thetford Aqua Magic Style II Low Profile White Toilet

Is your toliet a Thetford ? if so I will wager that it is the Flush valve, ours is a 82 PA and needed to be replaced awhile after we bought her.Over time a month or so that seal started sealing again but you could replace when you replace the Flush valve. You can search for a how to video too. not to hard 2 bolts. The Flush Valve was around $35 bucks.
Hope you are still having fun...

As far as the toilet, most likely it is just toilet paper that has jammed into the slot and needs cleaning out. Common problem on the old Thetford. You can remove the toilet, flip it over and remove the valve. Once you get the valve, you can clean the slot and lube the rubber gasket. Very likely it will work nearly fine after that.
While you have it off, you can take a good look at the seal, and replace that if necessary. It also may be cracked where the flange meets the tank. Most tanks are made from ABS, which seems to age and crack after a while. If that is the case, it is unlikely that any repair will last. It is difficult to get anything to stick to the tank, and yet stand up to the flex. Go to TankDepot.com and start shopping for a tank. If they don't have a premade tank that will work, they also will sell a straight rectangular tank, and then will mount fittings where ever you specify. Been down this road, and was able to replace my broken 27 gallon grey tank with a 40 gallon.
