Leaking Toilet

Hi ... we have a leak behind our toilet. We have a 24' Eclipse Attitude. The toilet is plastic, not ceramic and it doesn't have a foot lever, only hand lever flush. FYI.

It's in the elbow of the fresh water hose. ??? An easy fix or a professional repair? Any info/advice ... greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I have done some work on my Thetford toilet, most recently it was a leak from the area you mention. It appeared to be the elbow but it turned out to be the rotary valve. All you can do without removing the toilet is to tighten connections. If that doesn't do the trick, there are two bolts holding the toilet down. Remove them and disconnect the water line. You can then easily access the valve if that is your problem. I positively identified my valve as the leak before removing the toilet using a flashlight and telescoping mirror. I was going to replace the valve but disassembled it instead and replaced an O ring. My valve would have cost about $25 new. If you are handy this is not a hard job. If you want a new toilet they are not expensive, under $200.

That sounds good ... hubby is pretty handy. Is tight space and he's a big guy ... but it beats installing a new toilet. We're SERIOUSLY considering selling this toy hauler and buying a Cyclone 3914. Have only seen it online ... but layout looks good, posters who own Cyclone HIGHLY recommend them ... we'll see. But living full time in this trailer with 2 BIG dogs ... is working ... but could be better. ESPECIALLY with NO water on the bathroom floor, that would be awesome.
