Toilet water supply

I bought a used 2019 grey wolf 19rr. The original owners never put water to the system, just used it for sleeping. When I connected water to the system the toilet fills constantly with just a trickle and water leaks from the back where the flush pedal is. I am wondering if there is a washer in there that is able to be replaced,or is it a valve, or do I need to replace the whole toilet? Also the tub faucet does not close entirely. You can hear air coming out but but the leak is so small that water is not coming from the faucet unless it is actually turned on. The toilet functions properly except for the water running continuously. Any suggestions?

What is the toilet manufacturer and model? If it's a dometic it is probably this valve.

Am I correct in assuming that I have to remove the toilet to get this valve out?

Probably not. You can see the valve....it's right by the pedal.

It's number 1 on this pic:

The 300 and 310 are similar. Still don't know your make & model.

Wonder it they ever winterized it ? or does it live in a climate where that isn't necessary ?

It is a model 300 and looks the the diagram but when I remove the cover on the flush pedal it says, danger, do not remove. I assume it's because the pedal is spring loaded. Not sure how to remove the valve. The unit was winterized by the dealer but the original owner never connected it to a water source. I am thinking that the valves are dried/dirty

Do yourself a big favor and replace it with a model 310. Dometic may even give you a great deal on a new one as there has been big problems with the 300. Get your SN and give them a call. Regardless replace it with a 310.

I had this same issue, with the exact same toilet this spring. Probably due to me winterizing with air, and not anti-freeze. I purchased 2 valves. One for replacement, and the other as a spare. Do yourself a favor, and just remove the toiled from the RV. It makes replacing the valve a lot easier IMO. Unless of course you're about 5'0", weigh 140 lbs, and are very flexible.

X2, but with the moisture trapping issues with the 300 I'd just replace it. Do a search on this forum and you will finds lots of posts on this subject.

We use air to winterize, but we still put about a cupful of pink stuff in the bowl to protect the seals.

If you don't operate the valve during winterization doesn't matter if you use air or antifeeze, there will be water in there still.

I'm usually pretty cheap and don't like to spend any more money than necessary on repairs. However, since this model tends to retain urine in the toilet itself creating an offensive odor, there has been no water lubricating the seals and repairing the toilet is going to be a royal pain with no guarantee of success.....
If you have an extra $200, replacing it with model 310 is probably going to save you time and aggravation.

Thanks for all the help. I found quite a few bad reviews for the 310 as well. Thinking of spending the extra 50 bucks and get the 320

I think the only difference between the 310 and the 320 is the shape/size.

I bought a 310 with a sprayer. Definitely recommend!
