Tecma macerator toilet water level issues

Anyone out there have the Tecma macerator toilet (Isata 5DS) and have the water in the bowl leak down? I have the water level set and after a flush the water will drain out in about 15 seconds. Additionally the indicator on the switch panel is red and the black tank is not full. The only thing I saw in the manual was something about moving the drain hose up? Do I have to remove the toilet to do that? Seems like a lot of work for an adjustment.

Sorry about the photos being sideways, don't know how that happened. Anyone else have this issue?

The sensors for the toilet are separate from the Precision Plex. Unstick them and move them into the right place.

The water leaking out is associated or just the red light isse is because of sensors in the wrong place? Where are the sensors?

If you find that it is a water level problem, the owner’s manual states to press and hold both flush buttons simultaneously to enter the program mode. After 3-5 seconds, water will begin entering the toilet. Release the two buttons when the desired water level is reached. Tecma recommends water should be about 5” deep, but I think that’s a little high. Happy camping.

Done all that. Water doesn't stay in the bowl. It goes away in about 15 - 20 seconds. It's leaking past whatever valve internal to the toilet exists. Beyond my technical skills. Nothing in the book about it and very little on the internet. I was hoping someone on here had the same problem and figured it out.

Sounds like an internal problem. I have not seen that issue on the 5. Have you tried it with different angles of the jacks? I carry a small level and sometime tweak the jacks.

Great thought Scott, I have not tried this on level ground, perhaps the bleeding down of the water has to do with how I'm sitting? I'm going camping on Sunday I'll check it then and fingers crossed it's just a leveling issue?

Coach level did nothing. The Tecma thinks the tank is full. Tomorrow I will look at the tank sensors, do they look different than the regular sensors? How can I tell which is which, just look for two about an inch square?
Thanks,

Have not had this problem so can’t offer any good solutions.
