Had the same problem a short time ago. Not a nice item to work on, but someone has to do it. What I did was hold open the flush valve and wiped under the commode opening with a rag and then sprayed the rubber seal with silacone. So far, so good. Hope this works for you.

Itasca uses Sealand toilets, which are quite easy to maintain.

Leakdown is caused by an accmulation of lime scale on the teflon seals. You may be able to dissolve the lime by pouring in a few cups of vinegar, and then working the valve after the vinegar has leaked out, to dislodge any lime residue.

For really stubborn stuff, or a maintenance operation, you lift the top half of the toilet off, providing you with acess to the teflon seals, which just lift out for cleaning.

Removing the top half of the toilet only requires removal of two screws: The one that holds the plastic shroud around the toilet; and the screw which secures the clamp which holds the upper and lower part of the toilet together.

I have a THETFORD toilet and a replacement Flange Seal Kit I would like to install but upon quick inspection, it wasn't obvious to me how to remove the toilet from the tank. Is it simliar to the Sealand? I think my problem maybe bigger and the result of a leaking black water tank. Oh the smell inside! And dripping water outside near the tank. Gotta start somewhere.
