This is really good information Coot, no doubt others have had or will have problems with this bowl problem. Ours is brand new and it took reading the directions and operation three times before we figured out just exactly what it was doing. Now I know what to do in the future, also I am installing shut off valve on the wall behind the toilet, that I can at least cut it off first:
Thanks for covering: Also, just posted a followup on our future FROG Rally we want to have here in Marietta, GA on the 4th of April, would love to you and the bride come visit:

suggest taking pictures before you remove the pedal showing where the return spring seats, pictures after the pedal is removed of the valve and its position. The tech that replaced ours last year assembled the valve out of phase and the water wouldn't shut off so he had to come to the trailer and re-do it. I just got lucky as I didn't take pictures.
