Missing part?

First off yes I am new here. I have yet to complete my profile..."I'll get to that." anywhooo.....

I just acquired a grey wolf 26bh. After bringing it home I gave a look at the toilet and noticed I could look right down the drain pipe. Shouldn't there be a sliding door to keep water in the bowl? Could gases come up this opening? I have yet to see a rv toilet look this way. Thanks in advance for the help. I am sure I will be looking for more in the future.

Welcome to FRF.

Is the flush valve stuck open?
And yes you are correct about the gas problem.

Does sound like the flush valve is stuck open. Check the lever, does it seem to be stuck in the open position? With water on, does it just flow? If the lever looks to be in the closed position and no water flows then the mechanism that operates the valve could be broken. If water flows and the lever looks like it's in the open position then it could just be stuck and might be as simple as you closing it manually the first time.

The lever seems to be in the closed position. You can operate the lever and water will flow. When you let go of it the water stops. I think the mechanism must be broken. Is this something fixable?

I'm sure it is, could just be stuck, put on some rubber gloves and see if the valve will move by hand.

After you get it unstuck or repaired, pour some Camco cocolube with the valve closed, then flush it and it will also lube your dump valve.

The sad part is I can't even see the valve. It is like it is completely missing. Now I just have to wait until after work to investigate more. So thanks for the suggestions thus far. I will report back on my findings.

End results

I took the plunge and stuck my hand down the toilet. What I found was that the blade was completely missing and not just stuck as hoped for. I had already come across a good deal on a new toilet that I was considering. Being a no-brainer after my discovery, I went and scarfed up the new toilet (upgrade, BTW!).

I took out the old toilet, turned it upside down and sure enough the arm was broke that held the blade. YAY! Made the right call with just replacing it. New toilet is great.

Thanks for all the responses. This is why I joined...and to offer some help I can.

Ron
