Toilet Bowl not holding water

Toilet bowl not holding water above "flush lever" and gasket. Anyone ever had problem with this - seems like it's probably a warped gasket that's not sealing properly? This is in my 2015 Wildwood 261 BHXL...not loking at it right now, but I'm assuming it's a Dometic toilet.

Thanks!

Seals are available.......easy to change......you need to know the model to get the right seal

We've had that problem a few times and a simple wipe around the seal with some paper corrected the problem.

The new seals, after install'n, recommend you coat the seal, where the slide ball rubs, with silicone grease that Lowe's, or HD carry in the faucet repair area

Mine would leak down too. I used the lube that I use on the rubber orings on my swimming pool filter basket. Fixed it!


Now I'm going back to looking for my 10mm wrench! 2016 Wildwood 27RKSS

Mine came with a glorified (plastic) Popsicle stick that you use to "clean" all around the top and bottom of the gasket. Once I did that and hit it with some silicone, it stopped leaking. Good luck!

When I had that problem I used:

Thetford 36663 Toilet Seal Lube & Conditioner

And then it worked fine. May be worth trying.

Clean the seal then buy some vasiline, a jar might cost .80 cents. Makes the toielit flap real fast.

I have had that problem and to fix. I clean the gasket and area where it fits with soap/water with an old tooth brush. Also with the old tooth brush, tie a string on the tooth brush and wrist, just in case. You don't want to drop into the tank. Leave some water in the toilet so that your seals will not dry out. Then if it does not hold water, try the Thedford seal conditioner or Vasoline. If that fails, you must replace the seals.

Had that same problem with my 2015 Silverback and after reading the instructions for the toilet, it said to run your finger around the seal with downward pressure. Did that a few times and now it holds water.
