New RV Owner needing some help

Just bought a 2006 Forest River Cherokee 28A TT. Have really enjoyed the last 3 weekends. Have a couple of issues that maybe someone can help me with. We have no manuals so I cannot look up the answers.
1. No water comes out of the toilet for flushing, I believe just pulling the handle half way will pump water into the bowl is this true & if not what do I have to do. I assume the water comes from the same hookup of city water as the sinks and shower.
2. Excess moisture dripping from the cooling fins in the refrigerator, is this normal or should there be some type of drain or catch basin in the fridge.
3 I have a Winegard crank up antenna but when I plug in my coax cable I get no picture even with the booster power button pushed. Do I need a digital TV now for this or what? Thanks to anyone that can help me on this. I am sure I will run accross more questions as time goes on. Great forum everyone, I have learned a lot.

1) Our toilet runs water in the bowl when pulled halfway
2) Beats me
3) Yes, nowadays you need either a digital TV (with tuner) or a converter box

Hope you have a great time. Welcome.

Ken do you have water everywhere else? If so then maybe there`s a shut off on the line or the handle is bad, also you will need a converter for the older TV only digital signal now and i never seen my fridge have water dripping from the fins Does it have a plastic tube running on the outside through the back of fridge should be one there also welcome to the forums

1) Ours runs water when pulled half way too.
2) That's normal. There should be a plastic tray with a drain tube leading to the outside to drain away the condensation.
3) By coax, do you mean the cable from the wall to the tv? If so you do need a digital tv now. If you hook up to cable tv from the park the booster has to be off. Satellite will not work at all thru the booster unless you've done the work-around.

For Question Number 2) On my refrigerator there is a plastic tray under the fins but there is also a button, when you open the freezer look up towards the top right by the hindges kind of. If you have one it makes your fins not drip condensation off of them. Dont have any idea how it works but no condensation for me.....

If you read the manual that switch is for electric heater which prevents condensation.
