Toilet seal question

We purchased a 2016 palomino late last fall. Towed it home and winterized it and covered it up. Today I opened up the door to let it air out a bit and check for any problems. When I winterized it I poured some antifreeze into the toilet. Today the bowl is dry. Does this mean I have a leaking seal? Or is this normal for 3 months of sitting?

Normal, it evaporates after that many months. Unless you had more than about a cup full in there. Mine is always dry after storage also.

I would put some more antifreeze in the bowl to keep the seal from drying out.

Careful...I was doing the same procedure, depressed the foot pedal to clear out the bowl and the pedal shaft snapped resulting in my having to replace the whole toilet.

I gotta be honest the first time i looked at i thought it said toilet seat. I though who doesnt know how to work a toilet seat. Then I saw it said seal. I felt a little better.
