Thanks. Actually she says it starts leaking after the water is fully heated and notices it after she turns the heater off. She was able to get down and trace the leak up to where the inlet attaches at the top of the toilet tank or at least can feel the wetness at that fitting. However when the tech comes out we are going to have him check everything. I will also ask her to check when the shower is on. Last night it happened without her having the shower on.

You mentioned that you're hooked up to city water. Do you have a pressure regulator in the water feed line? if you don't, you could have higher pressure than the RV's plumbing system is designed to handle and the additional pressure caused when the hot water tank has heated the water may be just enough to start a leak at the weakest point.

Another possibility at the RV toilet is that the leak is not where the water line attaches to the toilet valve but is the valve stem. The valve stem is sealed with an O ring which can fail. When this happened on my toilet, it leaked for over a year into a basement storage compartment before I realized what was leaking. (I thought the water in the compartment was from the roof or the city water connection.) When I discovered that it was from behind the toilet, it still took me over a week to locate the very very slow drip from the valve stem because it's in a location that's almost impossible to see.

Update. Turned out to be just a loose water intake fitting at the toilet. The tech came out and just hand tightened it. Problem solved. My Wife could not reach it and he could. Thanks everyone for your input and help. Happy it was not something more serious.

Thanks for coming back and updating us on what it was. Though it's kinda what we expected it to be, it's always good to hear what it was and how it was fixed.
