We had this problem in our last one. It seemed to start when the water/RV antifreeze in the bowl evaporated over winter and the gasket/seal dried out. So I put hot water in the bowl to soften the seal and applied some mineral oil, fixed it right up, until the next time.

Remember not to use the toothbrush for its intended purpose again after that...

and it seem a lot easier to maintain, to fix those annoying little problems, than a boat...often that called for a dip in nettle (small jelly fish) infested water.Definitely not fun.
