Newbie needing some help

Just bought a 2006 Forest River Cherokee 28A TT. Have really enjoyed the last 3 weekends. Have a couple of issues that maybe someone can help me with. We have no manuals so I cannot look up the answers.
1. No water comes out of the toilet for flushing, I believe just pulling the handle half way will pump water into the bowl is this true & if not what do I have to do. I assume the water comes from the same hookup of city water as the sinks and shower.
2. Excess moisture dripping from the cooling fins in the refrigerator, is this normal or should there be some type of drain or catch basin in the fridge.
3 I have a Winegard crank up antenna but when I plug in my coax cable I get no picture even with the booster power button pushed. Do I need a digital TV now for this or what? Thanks to anyone that can help me on this. I am sure I will run accross more questions as time goes on. Great forum everyone, I have learned a lot.

As for the toilet, sounds like maybe a bad valve. I would loosen the line coming to the toilet and verify I had water pressure to the valve. I may have been unhooked and capped due a freeze sometime. Once I was sure of water pressure, I would look at the valve on the toilet for the problem. Might be able to find a diagram on the internet if you search.

As for the refer, quit opening the door so much. Will stay colder too. This is not a home refer, so plan when you are going to open and close the refer. Mine has a drain to collect the water and release it outside.

As for Television, you eithet have to have a digital t.v, pr a converter box. No analog stations left. Use a known working t.v from the house and try it.

Hope this helps a little. Maybe some others will have some ideas.

For the toilet is your pump on and are the sinks working?

We get the fridge condesation after we turn it off really. have to wipe it out before leaving. So thats pretty normal unless you are in and out of it alot.

Windrider is right you need a digital channel converter for the tv...
