No water coming into toilet

Fourth trip out this season, got set up, pushed step on toilet to start water and got a big gush of air and water then a trickle of water.
Water is flowing fine through all faucets but hardly a thing to toilet. No leaks can been seen yet. Haven't crawled under camper yet but no wet spots on the ground.
This is a 2016 Roo 21SS, has anyone else had this? Don't know where to start looking.

The last time I saw that here, the culprit was trash in the water valve behind the toilet.

Another warning. A neighbor had the valve or on his toulet fail open some. They went away for a little while only to find water running out the trailer door. His new trailer was condemmed after that because of the amount of sewer water and mold started forming before any repairs could be started. Luckily his insurance gave him value.

Somewhat common issue discussed here many times.

Here is one such discussion.

Toilet Valve

You are going to have to clean the valve at the toilet.

On newer Dometic units you can turn off the water pressure and remove the valve by depressing two small plastic finger latched that hold it in the unit and clean it out. On my unit it takes a couple of minutes once you know where to press.

Opening the two low point drains with water in the water heater is the usual cause of this problem. As the water system drains the water in the WH drains out of the cold water feed ( low point in the WH) taking some of the crud from the bottom of the tank with it. Some of the crud can remain in the cold water line as the system nears empty. The next time you charge up the water system for use, the crud is pushed along to until it reaches a valve or faucet strainer where it will partially or completely stop the water flow. To reduce the probability of this happening, drain the WH before opening the low point drains.

A very good reason to turn the pump off if your are leaving !!!

We never leave the pump on in our MH if we are not going to be right there !!!
We also turn our well pump off if we are going away for a couple of days or more !!! I could tell you some stories that would make you sick about flooded homes,,, because people did not flip the breaker off on there well pumps !!!
