OK we found the problem, we actually removed the toilet, it is the valve up in the back connected with the handheld sprayer. It was so damn clogged, but with power pressure the little black rubber ring got displaced, so it now spraying water all over. So as I travel this week I'll stop at a Camper World and have them replace it. So the container of water will be filled for now. One thing we did have installed when they replaced the toilet was to have them add an on/off valve just incase I had water issues. Also bought an extra water filter to attach to hose when connected outside water systems

Toilet water line cloded

I'm beginning to wonder how many people only use the low-point drains in draining their systems instead of removing the Water heater anode to drain it first. If the anode is removed first (after opening faucets to relieve water pressure), all the white crud from the deteriorating anode comes out the port where the anode is installed. Low-point drains should be used last.
If the low-point drains are used first, some of the white crud comes out into the cold water line where it waits to be run into the toilet valve and bath faucets. See comment above by "Flybob".
The anode is the ultimate problem, not water filtration on the city water inlet side. The manufactured system, when new, is absolutely clean; no FOD or other particles. If a filter is needed, it is in the water delivery line immediately prior to the toilet valve.
Bottom line - check and change the W/H anode regularly.

Very Good Point !!!
As I said I drain the W/H after every trip !!!
It maybe a waste of water,,, but I conserve in many other ways !!!

I just had the same problem. The only way to clean it out is to remove the toilet.

Can someone explain to me exactly where this is located? And how often it should be replaced?

Thanks

The anode rod is the big plug screwed into the bottom portion of the hot water heater.

If it is a suburban water heater this link may help. If it is check once a year or more often until you understand how the water at places you go to affect it.
