The bowl stays full of water. The water on the floor is clean. May I assume a loose water intake connection? Or could I have a gasket problem lower in the unit?
Thanks!!!

If the bowl is holding water and the water on the floor is clean, then you are probably correct that the leak is somewhere in the intake line. Is the water leaking from the base, or coming out through one of the joints?

don't know what model you have but i have the aurora aquamagic in my itasca and after 5 years the water valve is leaking..i can see mine by removing the side panel..it's a slow drip..i made a tray to collect the water so i can put off removing the commode until i get home..i can also see the leak by placing a mirror behind the commode..jim

I had a similar problem on my '96 Pace Arrow and it was the water valve that had a leak. It is not that difficult a problem but is a slight pain to get to the screws and bolts. Mine was 9 years old when that happened. The part cost $29.00 and included all new gaskets so I have a like new throne.

It's not unusual for the o-rings in the inlet valve to go bad and leak - there's probably a rebuild kit availale for your valve. If not, its valve replacement time. It's a pretty straight-forward chore. Noting "nasty" about it either.

Get your toilet make.model and ask any RV parts place for a rebuild kit for the inlet valve or a replacement valve.
