Toilet doesn't hold water

The toilet won't hold water when I try to fill up the bowl and of course it's smelling up the RV. PLEASE give me advice!

There is a the rubber seal around the 'ball' that is not working correctly to hold the water there. See if the seal has been compromised in some way or is there any debris on it to where the ball is not closing correctly. The toilet can be taken out very easily and flipped over and the seal removed and cleaned and reinstall. If the seal is messed up a new seal can be ordered for the toilet unit.

That I don't know.. We are putting Vaseline on the seal in the toilet tank so the gases doesn't come from the black tank until we get it in for repair

Vaseline on seals is generally a NO-NO! Should use Danco silicone paste.

Yep,no vaseline long term. In a pinch you do what you have to. Before going through the hassle of taking the toilet off buy a bottle of seal lubricant, pour some in and work the flush valve

I've had that problem. Cut the water supply to the toilet. Put on some rubber gloves, hold the flush pedal down. With your finger rub away the crusty material that has accumulated on the rubber seal. I apply some plumbers grease. Put some water in the stool and check periodically. If still leaking, do the procedure again. I found that after sitting with the grease on it for a few hours the crust you missed gets softer and you will get more of it to rub off. Usually two times does it for ours. When you store your unit, be sure to keep the seal wet. I pour a little RV antifreeze in mine. Water will get stinky if it sets in the stool very long. Hope this helps.
