Seem to have an issue with fresh water tank filling while hooked to 'city water', am hooked to a house spigot at present, all was good til we moved over about 20' more from house??? Also experiencing problem with toilet loose, rocks back and forth and fore and aft, nuts on the two studs at the base are tight. thinking I will take off the shroud at the base, under the bowl and see if there is a way to tighten it back down, no leaking at present, believe it to be a "Style II", not sure. Have been below where the drain comes thru the floor and have no access there. Anyone with ideas? Thank-you!

I have read that there is a check valve just inside the fresh water fill connection (or at the pump) that prevents the fresh water tank from filling. This is not that uncommon. Someone will post their experience first. So far I have not had that problem. Pull the shroud off the toilet and recheck the bolts. The toilet should not rock noticeably. It's easy to remove the toilet. If you do, replace the wax ring (or foam ring) with a new wax ring and bolts.

Right, thanks Stan, the fresh water tank issue seems to have stopped, at least the last time I checked it was not filling..... and I really did not want to remove the toilet it at all poss. but I reckon, if I must.... are wax rings standard for all? Thanks again!

On newer units, the check valve is built into the 12 v pump, mine started filling the fresh water tank and I had the pump switched out under warranty. No issues since, but if it happens again, I will just add an inline check valve.

My toilet originally had a cheap foam gasket. When I upgraded the toilet I installed a standard wax ring. They come thick, thin (standard) and with or without a plastic flange. I got a standard with the plastic flange. Works fine.

from what I seen taking the campers to dealerships is that some times the check valve sticks it seems for know reason hope it does not do it again the dealer told me to run a little bit of winter antifreeze threw the line and that would help the problem hope this helps Jim&Carol

Flange, on the floor was cracked, made it rock. Took the toilet up and the flange must be glued to the 3" PVC drain, no way it was coming off w/o breaking it all to he_ _. Went to Lowe's and with the aid of a helpful sales person got a "Wax Free Toilet Seal" , peel the paper off the top, stick it on the toilet horn and install, no wax ring. It's rubber and the bottom part fits snuggley into the 3" drain, push it down onto the bolts and tighten the nuts. Had to put ametal flange adaptor on top of the broken plastic one, lost the broken piece down the drain!! Should be small enough to not give any probs *fingers crossed* and this after telling DW to be careful not to drop anything into the drain!! Toilet did not sit flush w/ floor and had to shim for stability, works great and so far no leaks*fingers crossed*. That's how I spent my Sunday!

Ok anyone knows where that 'check' valve is and what one must do to prevent the freshwater tank from filling while hooked to 'City' water? Please!
