Toilet not Flushing

FR3 28DS.
Not getting water to toilet but a trickle and not enough to flush. Just cleaned out the aerator on the sinks (kitchen and bath) to clear them; does anyone know if the toilet also has an aerator and if so how to get to it.

You didn't mention your toilet brand.
Toilets typically don't have an 'aerator' per se but do have a valve.
Most are not serviceable but you might remove it and try to clean.

Here is a Dometic 300 series valve.
Doesn't look serviceable.
Again, maybe try to remove and clean or just replace.
Buy it **HERE**

Here is a link to a video.

This happened to me at the Amana Rally

I took the toliet out and rinsed the input out with water while using a screwdriver to clear some of the debris. Also, a red solo cup with some water makes an excellent seal with the hole into the black tank.

Good luck

Yeah, this is normal with a new unit. And even ours at almost 2 years old recently was clogged with the construction debris (plastic shavings mostly). I've always been lazy to respond, and it usually fixes itself after a couple days. Otherwise, I'm just patient to let it trickle before I fully open the gate valve. It doesn't happen nearly as often since we first got the rig, so it gets better. I think it clogs up at the jet within the toilet is my guess. I wonder if you can get a can of compressed air and just spray some air to dislodge what plastic piece hasn't came out.

When removing the toilet is their master water valve I need to shut off first.
I will also try the air trick first.

Not that I know. Just turn off the water pump and turn off the city water connection and bleed off the cold water pressure by opening another faucet. Once the water stops coming out, you should be good. You'll still get some water on the floor I guess, but should be too much. Just a guess on my part, but someone could chime in that actually has pulled their jon.

We ended up having to take ours to the RV repair place because I could not fully turn off all the water. We were on the road when it happened to us. We kept an empty bucket in the shower and as we showered, we let the bucket catch most of the water that would have gone into the gray tank. We used it to flush and rinse out the commode til we could get it fixed. Just do your thing, depress the foot pedal, and pour water from the bucket. Usually does not take an entire bucket to achieve success.
