You need a new gasket. Buy a 6 pack.

Sounds like you might need to clean or replace the gasket. Is this while you are camping or while the RV is stored? We lose a bit of water to evaporation when our RV is stored during the summer...so when we go to exercise the genny, we run water in the p-traps and check the toilet water level.

Try putting in some water and then drop a packet of holding tank chemical. Let it set and see if the leak stops. I cleaned and greased the seal and nothing worked until I did the above. It apparently rejuvenates the rubber seal.

Yes, the black one. You get to it from the bottom. You need to take the toilet out. Simple job.
I had a bad gasket for ever. I replaced it a few times. I called the maker and they sent me one for free. It went out. They sent another on. It went out. So, I called again and they sent me a new toilet, free. Call them.

Probably here ... if I remember correctly there is an "old" and "new" style. If yours is an original toilet in your 97 it is the "old" style. Mine typically drains down/evaporates in about one week in storage. I ignore it for now because I'm usually there every week.

We have this problem with the seal once in a while. Most of the time cleaning the seal, then lubrication with silicone spray will fix the leakage for several months. We sometimes have the unit in storage for three or four months and, as long as the lid is closed to retard evaporation, the seal holds and water is still in the toilet when we leave storage. I did have to replace the seal once. I honestly think I got too aggressive while cleaning and nicked the old one. Replacement was easy even for a DYI klutz like me - took about 2 hours. I was told several times to use Vaseline as a seal lube. The toilet manufacturer told me absolutely never use any petroleum product.
