Toilet leaking

Have a Thetford model 42072 foot flush toilet. The "sprayer" where the water comes out to flush has a drip. Has anyone fixed this? I looked it up on the net, can't find anything. Pics attached. Thanks

Yep! Took the POS Thetford out for some target practice & replaced it with a Dometic 310 (round bowl), much better toilet. Saw it at CW yesterday for $169, the foot pedal for the Thetford was $70+. This is what I'd recommend for you, it's about a 20 minute job.
Yours has leaking valve & you'll have remove the toilet to replace the valve so just as well replace the toilet, You'll be glad you did.

So Im not the only one who scrapped the Thetford toilet! I got tired of rebuilding that darn thing. Weve got a cheapo now, but Im planning on the new Dometic Revolution 310.

Yep I too replaced my toilet with the Dometic 310 only after 2 weeks. Had one in my old camper so I knew what I was getting. I like the new slow closing seat!!! The Theftford wasn't leaking just a cheap toilet IMO and while I was changing it I went ahead and put a small hammer arrester in just too quiet it down and makes it easier on the pipes. All said and done toilet, arrester a couple of fittings less than $190 and couldn't be happier!!!
