Need help with leaking toilet

I recently acquired a Dodge Tioga motorhome about 3 months ago. Class C. The bathroom has one of the older plastic toilets. No leaks around the floor. But it leaks where the fresh water line comes into the toilet whenever the toilet is flushed. Doesn't matter if it's city water or the fresh water pump. This is an older Aqua Matic so the floor screws can be tricky to get at. It has double pedals on the floor. Anyone ever replaced or repaired one of these before? Thinking about getting toilet rebuild kit. But I need to figure out the easiest way to get it out, and back in again.

If you can find the manufacturer name on the toilet, Google them and look for info on repair kits.

I have replaced the water valve assembly on my aquamagic before. Pretty easy as long as you remove the toilet first

A toilet leaking at the valve could be gasket failure or improper winterizing, allowing ice to crack the valve body. In either case, see if a replacement kit or valve is available. Often the best first step is to remove the toilet, 'sterilize' and replace parts on the workbench. It's made by Thetford, so I believe parts are available for most models. By the way, some Thetford toilets have a cover over the bottom part, hiding the bolts. Remove the cover or shroud first to aid in removal.

I have determined my toilet is an Aqua Magic Galaxy Starlite. The high unit. The ball valve is not leaking. There are no leaks in the base. So either one of the hoses in the toilet base are leaking ( the hose from valve to bowl) or there is a hairline fracture in the bowl.

So my next question would be. How do you fix a hairline fracture in an all plastic toilet??? Click image for larger version

The manual has troubleshooting for leaks, I'd suspect one of their suggestions before worrying about repairing a cracked bowl.
