Surveyor 07 Toilet not working, water for everything else

I have my Surveyor 07 set up, and the toilet was working fine for a few uses then all of a sudden, whenever i try to flush it, no water comes in, just the hole opens up for the water (if there was any) to go out. The entire rest of the rv has water, and the pressures great. Any idea whats going on?

Turn your water pump off, disconnect the water fitting on the back of the toilet (it just unscrews). Pull the tube loose, put a towel under it and have someone hit the pump switch on and off quickly. Does water come out? then the problem is with the flush valve on the toilet. If not the problem is up line somewhere from the toilet in the plumbing. Has anything frozen? Has it been cold like Kydan said?

yeah,its been cold, the drain for the shower also clogged up, im thinking it was ice for that, and the toile, in thinking that it froze, i poured some water down the toilet, a couple hours later i heard the shower water finally going down, and the toilet would flush, thanks for the very precisse advice., Its pretty cold so thats probably what happened.

Similar Problem

I've a similar problem with my Flagstaff 5th wheel. Traveling south in the frigid weather the toilet worked fine. Nice heavy flow with ever flush. All of a sudden during our 1st 80 degree weather the flow slowed way down to a trickle. It still works but each flush requires the valve be held open much longer to get a satisfactory flush. Thoughts???
