Question My Thetford Tecma silence plus Toilet drains

Hi Folks! I need some advice on my Thetford Tecma silence plus electric toilet. The water level is suppose to be 1/2" above the out fall hole, and after each flush the water reaches that height but then slowly (about 20 seconds) it drains out and stops draining when the water level is about a 1/2" below the top of the out fall hole. Is there any type of a seal or check valve in there somewhere that needs fixing or replacing? I've checked older threads on this forum and some people have had the same problem as mine... but I can't find anyone who shared with us... How to FiX IT! Any help would be greatly appreciated. And I promise I'll pass along the remedy of how to fix it, (if I learn it) should anyone ask the same question.

I had a similar problem with the rear toilet in my Winnebago Tour. The drain problem only occured after I had the toilet moved forward as the lid wouldn't stay in the upright position (too close to the wall) Anyway, I called the manufacturer and they told me to check the black 1 1/2 inch rubber pipe on the back of the toilet. If it's too low, the toilet will drain. I found that the hose slips into a rubber coupling near the floor and all I had to do was to wedge the black pipe so it was higher that it was. I took a piece of 3/4" wood and made a "U" shaped wedge that slipped under the coupling hose, resting on the floor which in turn raised the black pipe 3/4 on an inch. That stopped the leak down. If you need more info. send me a message and I may be able to take a photo but once you look at the black pipe especially where it goes through the floor, you'll see how to make a wedge as I did.
